Plugins should not need declare Servlet API as dependency

Reported by: jri Owned by: jri
Priority: Major Milestone: Release 4.7
Component: DeepaMehta Standard Distribution Version: 4.6.1
Keywords: Cc: dgf, Malte
Complexity: 2 Area:


In particular if they don't import anything from javax.servlet but rely on it only indirectly, e.g. when using dms.getAccessControl(). When not declaring the dependency an error occurs:

[ERROR] [...] Compilation failure
[ERROR] [...] cannot access javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest
[ERROR] class file for javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest not found

Thanks to Malte for reporting!

In 3bdbb9de52470b85c110cf2f82fa30d2984835c3/deepamehta:

Parent POM: Servlet API available for all (#845).

3rd-party plugins deriving from deepamehta-plugin-parent must not declare the Servlet API dependency anymore. In particular when using dms.getAccessControl().

See #845.
