Description Gerard Ryan 2014-07-24 18:10:18 UTC
Description of problem:
apache-commons logging installs 3 jars: apache-commons-logging-adapters.jar, apache-commons-logging-api.jar, and commons-logging.jar. OSGi metadata in META-INF/MANIFEST.MF for each of these is the same. This appears to cause a conflict when something depends on an OSGi bundle with BSN org.apache.commons.logging -- they all have that name, so it's not known which will be resolved. This is noticed in eclipse-webtools, where a plugin Require-Bundle's this...sometimes build works, sometimes it doesn't.

Actual results:
Sometimes an acceptable bundle is resolved.

Expected results:
Probably commons-logging.jar should be the only one that has the metadata for now. It's a combination of all the classes from the other two jars.

Additional info:
Thanks to Roland Grunberg for diagnosing this!

Upstream are using the same manifest for all three jars also:


Comment 2 Mat Booth 2014-07-29 15:02:44 UTC
This should probably be fixed in F20 too, right?

$ rpm -q apache-commons-logging
$ for j in $(rpm -ql apache-commons-logging | grep -e "/a.*jar$") ; do echo $j ; unzip -p $j META-INF/MANIFEST.MF | grep SymbolicName ; done
Bundle-SymbolicName: org.apache.commons.logging
Bundle-SymbolicName: org.apache.commons.logging
Bundle-SymbolicName: org.apache.commons.logging

Yep. I'll fix it in F20+

Comment 4 Mikolaj Izdebski 2014-07-30 10:51:15 UTC
Fixed in apache-commons-logging-1.2-2

Comment 5 Mikolaj Izdebski 2014-07-30 11:23:01 UTC
The fix is available in rawhide now:
I'll backport it to F21 and F20 once you confirm that it works for you.

Comment 6 Gerard Ryan 2014-07-30 19:05:16 UTC
Works for me. I've tried on Rawhide, and also installed the updated package to f21 and tried there since that's where I was experiencing the issue. Both appear to have built fine now.

I believe that this bug is fixed in apache-commons-logging-1.1.3-8,
which is available in updates for Fedora 20, so I am closing this bug now.

The build containing the fix can be found at Koji:
