The first thing to try would be to simply use the dependencies already
present in Solr.  If the component you are using can't work with the
older version of a third-party library that already exists in Solr, then
you will have to upgrade the third-party libraries in Solr.  This means
replacing those jars in the WEB-INF/lib directory, not adding them to
the user lib directory.  Having multiple versions of any library causes

Note that if you do upgrade jars in WEB-INF/lib, Solr itself may stop
working correctly.  It's *usually* pretty safe to upgrade an internal
Solr dependency as long as you're not upgrading to a new major version,
but it doesn't always work.

Sometimes it is simply not possible to combine Java projects in the way
you want, because each of them use a dependency in ways that are not
compatible with each other.  Here's an example of something that just
won't work because of problems with a dependency:
