             Summary: Avoid asm library conflicts - please follow ow2 repackage 
                 Key: CXF-7061
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 3.1.7
            Reporter: Carsten Heyl
            Priority: Minor

Repeatingly people get conflicts because of different asm library versions and 
because ow2 didn't change package names between incompatible versions of the 
asm library.

Ow2 recommends that libraries/components using asm byte processing bundle their 
own repackages version of asm.

I suggest that CXF does the same and avoid conflicts for the future.

It's the third time I got bitten by this and it's a waste of time and blaming 
other libraries and trying to run other libraries without correct asm version 
does not help. Updating legacy applications is a pain without those issues.

I know that a similiar issue has been rejected in the past (adding a dependency 
to a repackaged asm) but in my opinion CXF is a major component and should play 
nicely with others and should repacke on it's own.

Thank you for providing such a great product.
