Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-1751) Spring feature dependencies specified too tightly
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 01:14:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1751?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13439206#comment-13439206

Freeman Fang commented on KARAF-1751:
-------------------------------------

To keep backward compatibility, we should explicitly specify the range but not let version="2.2.7"
implicitly means "[2.2.7,2.2.8)"  in feature

> Karaf 2.2.7 ships with the "http" feature that specifies pax-web 1.0.9. But I need fixes
in pax-web 1.1.4 (for Jetty 7.6). So, I create my own override-features.xml with an "http"
feature with version="2.2.7.override" with my version of pax-web. However, the spring-web
feature (which is transitively required by CXF) declares this prereq:
> {code}
> <feature version="2.2.7">http</feature>
> {code}
> where it should be something like "[2.2,2.3)" or "[2,3)". This too-tightly-specified
version causes both pax-web 1.0.9 and 1.1.4 to be loaded into my container, causing lots of
problems.
> This is a issue for many of the Spring features. I request that the versions be loosened
in the features.xml to allow people like me to selectively override transitive features.
