It happens that OSGi classloading result in the wrong NCDFE and that one of the classes "used" (i.e. return type, parameter, throws, extends, implements) in the reported class is not visible by the classloader. And occasionally, it is a "diamond problem", i.e. that the Constraints (IIRC, see chapter 3.8 in OSGi spec) can't be satisfied.
Sorry that I don't have time to dig into the actual situation here, but I thought I could share some of my past (dark) history.... ;-) Cheers Niclas On Wed, Apr 1, 2020 at 12:43 AM Christofer Dutz <christofer.d...@c-ware.de> wrote: > Hi all, > > But If I search for uses of that class, it's only in the > org.apache.plc4x.java.spi.connection.NettyChannelFactory which is in the > SPI module. > > So I am not sure where this is accessed directly from the outside.
