Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-2171) asm should be optional
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2012 12:21:46 GMT


Jean-Louis MONTEIRO commented on OPENJPA-2171:

Well, IMHO the issue is larger than just TomEE. The point is that a lot of projects uses ASM
(Hibernate, OpenJPA, Spring, CXF, etc ...). But almost all of them uses a different version
which can lead to hard classloading issues to solve. I can remember pulling my hair out because
of that.

Even out TomEE, a webapp can face the same issue.

If you could provide an ASM-shaded jar of OpenJPA, that could help solving such an issue.

> openjpa uses since some versions asm but in tomee for instance we use a shade (through
the xbean one org.apache.xbean:xbean-asm-shaded to avoid classloading/version issues with
> it can be nice if openjpa can provide us an issue to this because we really don't want
to provide asm in our binaries.
> solutions can be to use the xbean shade, give us an interface to implement or to try
several implementation (xbean shade, asm,...) by reflection
