Jira 7.5.0 plugin with apache cxf dependency



I need to add a cxf dependency in a jira plugin, version 7.5.0, to consume custom soap web service.


For each upload of my plugin, there are OSGI Bundle Exceptions like : 

org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Unresolved constraint in bundle [401]: Unable to resolve 401.0: missing requirement [401.0] osgi.wiring.package; (osgi.wiring.package=com.sun.msv.grammar)

There are dozens of dependencies...

How can I fix this?


Best regards,

In your pom.xml what is in the <Import-Package> tag? Put there optional and OSGI will not consider these packages as required. But if you later need them then you will have a NPE or ClassNotFound or something like this.

Hi Alexey,


Thanks for you answer.

I already added this :


Then I removed, because it's effectively correct the previous error, but the next one appears :

unsatisfied dependencies: none 

org.springframework.beans.factory.parsing.BeanDefinitionParsingException: Configuration problem: Unable to locate Spring NamespaceHandler for XML schema namespace [http://cxf.apache.org/jaxws]
Offending resource: URL [bundle://450.0:0/META-INF/spring/plugin-context.xml]

It looks like missing something from apache CXF (and I make many of the cxf dependencies optional)... Even if I add the cxf-core dependency (which is normaly provided by cxf-rt-frontend-jaxws), the jaxws schema is missing.


What am I missing?

I never used Apache cxf. But I guess it is looking for some kind of Spring configuration. This configuration must be in an xml format. Now all that is needed to define what must be in the xml file and put it in your plugin so that apache.cxf could read it.

My apologies, I skiped some explainations.


In the atlassian-plugin.xml spring beans file, I import the cxf.xml file, to create a bean.

<import resource="classpath:META-INF/cxf/cxf.xml" />

This import is in error.

If I remove this, there is no error. But I need this for my jaxws client.

<jaxws:client ... />

To be able to dig into more details, I need your pom.xml, atlassian-plugin.xml and cxf.xml
