Subject [jira] [Commented] (OPENJPA-2171) asm should be optional
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 14:24:18 GMT


Romain Manni-Bucau commented on OPENJPA-2171:

the issue is mainly tomee uses it in common classloader of tomcat and any user can need to
provide a different version of asm (for a spring webapp for instance). as this issue is common
Geronimo shaded asm.

the goal of this issue is to simply the dependency of openjpa on objectweb asm library.

if a user depends on asm it will need to bring asm.

Maybe i was not clear but the idea is simply to replace a dependency by another one for openjpa
so the classical dependencies mecanisms are not broken.

> 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
