Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-2852) SolrJ doesn't need woodstox jar

SolrJ doesn't need woodstox jar

                 Key: SOLR-2852
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: clients - java
            Reporter: David Smiley
            Priority: Trivial

The /dist/solrj-lib/ directory contains wstx-asl-3.2.7.jar (Woodstox StAX API).  SolrJ doesn't
actually have any type of dependency on this library. The maven build doesn't have it as a
dependency and the tests pass.  Perhaps Woodstox is faster than the JDK's StAX, I don't know,
but I find that point quite moot since SolrJ can use the efficient binary format.  Woodstox
is not a small library either, weighting in at 524KB, and of course if someone actually wants
to use it, they can.

I propose woodstox be removed as a SolrJ dependency.  I am *not* proposing it be removed as
a Solr WAR dependency since it is actually required there due to an obscure XSLT issue.
