Why would one support such use case? If a user is adding their own ORM in
the app, I'd expect them to do it completely, with all the dependencies of
*that version*. I mean, how would you even know whether the Javassist
version you are adding is the right one?
I think that exporting the Javassist classes from ORM was considered a
bad idea back then in 2011. Now, we don't want to lose application
And what happens if the user *is* providing Javassist with the app? Tbh.
allowing the user to add their own ORM in the app seems even more a
justification to not inject Javassist.
Sure, lets get to the point where we can allow the user to have their

Would that hint be another "knob" to be set by the user? If so, I wouldn't
like it too much, it's just such a technical detail we shouldn't bother the
Yes, it would be another knob, however, it is likely to only be used
by the Hibernate ORM testsuite, as I haven't heard of any user request
Another idea: can you examine the ORM module you are about to add and check
wether it exports Javassist and if so, not auto-inject Javassist? Not sure
whether it's doable in terms of capabilities of the module API.
I'm not 100%, we would likely need to explore what is available from
the application deployment
org.jboss.as.server.deployment.module.ModuleSpecification at the early
deployment phase that JPADependencyProcessor is called in.
ModuleSpecification seems to have getSystemDependencies() +
getUserDependencies() + getLocalDependencies() calls, but I'm not sure
how (deployment) expensive it would be to sequentially walk through
each module dependency and look for javassist classes.
