Description Carlo de Wolf 2012-01-26 10:49:29 UTC
Created attachment 557637 [details]
upstream vs installed

Description of problem:

When developing a Maven extension that uses DOM you run into trouble if you do not load the default installed extension libraries.

/usr/share/maven/lib/ext contains xml-commons-apis.jar to hide the fact that /usr/share/maven/lib/xerces-j2.jar is not the same as xercesMinimal- which comes with the upstream distribution.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write an extension that does not incorporate the default lib/ext
2. Use the extension
Actual results:

Observe the java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.w3c.dom.ElementTraversal

Expected results:

A working extension.

Additional info:

In the attachment there is a diff between a run with upstream and a run with installed maven.
