Description Juan Hernández 2013-09-16 17:05:20 UTC
Description of problem:

This missing javax.activation.api module is used by other modules, RESTEasy for example.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

wildfly-8.0.0-0.6.Alpha3.fc21.noarch

Comment 1 Marek Goldmann 2013-09-17 11:29:53 UTC
The javax.activation.api module was removed, because the javax.activation.* files are provided by the JDK itself. This is in line with the Fedora guidelines: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Java#EE_API_List. Here you can find the patch that removes the activation module: https://github.com/fedora-jboss-as/wildfly/commit/a3fbfa634ff1f5a80f8ae265e79866034f9a0875.

If you still need the javax.activation classes - please depend on the javax.api module - this will make the required classes available.

Comment 2 Juan Hernández 2013-09-17 12:13:48 UTC
I think that the module itself can't be removed, as it is required by other JBoss AS modules. Without it those other modules won't be able to use the classes, even if they are part of the JDK. What can be probably done is remove the reference to the .jar file from the module.xml file and replace it with exporting the classes from the JDK, something like this:

<!-- Remove this: -->
<resources>
  <resource-root path="activation-1.1.1.jar"/>
  <!-- Insert resources here -->
</resources>

<!-- Add this to the dependencies: -->
<system export="true">
  <paths>
    <path name="javax/activation"/>
  </paths>
</system>

Comment 3 Juan Hernández 2013-09-17 12:20:28 UTC
I see in the patch that you already did something similar to what I suggest in comment 2, but apparently there are still places where the javax.activation.api module is used:

# fgrep -r javax.activation.api /usr/share/wildfly/modules
/usr/share/wildfly/modules/system/layers/base/javax/activation/api/main/module.xml:<module xmlns="urn:jboss:module:1.1" name="javax.activation.api">
/usr/share/wildfly/modules/system/layers/base/org/jboss/resteasy/resteasy-crypto/main/module.xml:        <module name="javax.activation.api"/>
/usr/share/wildfly/modules/system/layers/base/org/jboss/resteasy/resteasy-client/main/module.xml:        <module name="javax.activation.api"/>

Comment 4 Marek Goldmann 2013-09-17 12:21:58 UTC
It seems these were introduced in WildFly, I'll make changes to these files. This should fix the issue. This will be available in the Alpha4 build.
