ejb 2.1 dependency jar - change to freely available jar in M2 Central


    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Critical
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 2.0 M1, 2.0 M2, 2.0 M3
    • Fix Version/s: 2.1.4
    • Component/s: None
    • Labels:


      The spring-ws-parent and spring-ws-support module poms reference the javax.ejb/ejb/2.1 Maven dependency. Because of Sun/Oracle binary distribution restrictions, this dependency does not exist in Maven Central and prevents the build from executing normally upon a fresh checkout from trunk.

      To guarantee a clean build with no problems, this dependency should be replaced by referencing a freely available unencumbered .jar instead.

      Apache Geronimo provides such distributable .jars for all of the EJB/JEE specifications. A patch will be attached with the following dependency applied instead of the defunct ejb 2.1 .jar:


      Once the patch is applied, the project should build successfully after a checkout without any problems.
