Resolution: Won't Fix
Affects Version/s: 1.4, 1.5
Fix Version/s: None
Seen on Windows XP but should be platform independant
Based on the pom.xml files:
commons config (1.4 and 1.5) depends on commons colletions ** 3.2 ** and on commons-beanutils 1.7
Unfortunately commons-beanutils 1.7depends on commons-collection ** 2.0 **
I know this kind of jar version clash is not unusual with java/Maven. I know also we can fix it with <dependencyManagement> instruction in maven.
However, i experienced trouble when using the assembly:assembly project, which does not seem to take into account my <dependencyManagement>.
But as all these project are coming from apache-commons, I think it would be nice if they all fit together, with a coherent version choice. Probably just uprading beanutils so that it depends on commons-collection 3.2 would work and solve this (I didn't test that)
i consider this issue as a general comment on common, to have better version management, possibly using ranges (for example if beanutils has been tested succesfully with commons-collections from 2.0 to 3.2)
What do you think?
Cheers and thanks for all the work and tools you gave us
