Claus Ibsen created KARAF-3940:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Make it possible / easy to configure which spring version Karaf uses
                 Key: KARAF-3940
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-3940
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.4.3
            Reporter: Claus Ibsen


It would be great if the spring version that karaf uses is configured in one of the etc config
files. So people can easily upgrade by changing the version in that file.

Today you cannot do that and its a hazzle to upgrade spring. In fact very hard as the spring
version is hardcoded in the features file

 true    mvn:org.apache.karaf.assemblies.features/spring/2.4.3/xml/features

The reason is that spring has frequent releases and often they have security issues in their
new releases. Or some 3rd party libraries with osgi ranges requires a higher version, even
on patch level, eg 3.2.13
