Strata 1.7 Java 9 dependency causing issues with various Apache products


#1

Due to Strata v1.7 having meta-info.java compiled with Java 9 there are issues arising with it’s use in Tomcat (specifically TomEE) web servers. This is due to dependencies on Apache ASM v 5 byte code assembler that only supports up to Java 8. It appears that Apache are in no rush to fix this issue. Similar to what was done for Joda Beans would it be possible to create a “classic” version that doesn’t have this issue?


#2

Strata doesn’t have a module-info.java file. I assume its complaining about the Joda-Beans and Joda-Convert ones. You’ll need to manually swap those over in your maven config using excludes.
