Source: xmlstreambuffer
Version: 1.5.4
Severity: normal
Usertags: default-java9

This package fails to build with default-jdk pointing to openjdk-9-jdk.

javax.activation.DataSource has been removed in Java 9.

What are we doing about this? Patching packages to have extra dependencies
on some artifact that provides it? Um...

The wiki currently has a section about this, but no solution.
When there's a solution, please update the wiki so others can copy you:

Build log:

Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: javax.activation.DataSource

libaxiom-java. Thanks to Emmanuel for root cause analysis:
