Provide dependency from lib/ directory

Hi! I want include XStream library in my plugin.
I don't want use <scope>compile</scope> because I see that Jira include this library (xstream-1.3.1.jar) in WEB-INF/lib folder. But when I write something like that :

&lt;dependency&gt;
            &lt;groupId&gt;xstream&lt;/groupId&gt;
            &lt;artifactId&gt;xstream&lt;/artifactId&gt;
            &lt;version&gt;1.2.2&lt;/version&gt;
            &lt;scope&gt;provided&lt;/scope&gt;
        &lt;/dependency&gt;

it just don't work, plugin can't find and load xstream classes in runtime.

How to resolve this issue?

Jar files under WEB-INF/lib are not available to OSGI plugins. They have a class path or their own and hence you need to give the scope as compile. There is no other option here.

Well, the only other option is to create a v1 plugin. That will work but will take away all the advantages of v2 plugins away, like dynamic deployment.
