Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-3940) Make it possible / easy to configure which spring version Karaf uses
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2015 06:51:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-3940?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14710717#comment-14710717

Guillaume Nodet commented on KARAF-3940:

If all features use the dependency flag, upgrading to a different version of spring should
simply be a matter of explicitly choosing a version of the spring feature to install, in addition
to the default one provided by other features.

> 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
