Hmm, I just tried it locally, and find the same issue with you, will have a
close look at the codes. Please check my comments below, hope it helps.

     It is not a problem to do this. And actually, there are many similar
requests for other components, e.g. users would like to use the component of
the specified version, while Geronimo uses another version internally.

   If there are more than one applications deployed in Geronimo, and all of
them require same version spring library. One solution is to deploy those
jar files in the repository, and dependency in your application. If you feel
not convenient for many dependencies (I know there are many jar files), you
could simply defined a sharedlib gbean in your application deployment plan
and place all those jar files in one folder.The both solutions above will
share jar files among many applications, not share classes.

   The best scenario is that, if no web service is used in the target
application, cxf should not be added as a dependency, as it would make the
class searching more efficient. But it should not hurt your application, the
only problem I saw is like spring components issue you found, some
unexpected classes are in the parent classloaders of the deployed
