Carsten Heyl created CXF-7061:
Summary: Avoid asm library conflicts - please follow ow2 repackage
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 3.1.7
Reporter: Carsten Heyl
Repeatingly people get conflicts because of different asm library versions and
because ow2 didn't change package names between incompatible versions of the
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.
