For the external authentication support in the seam security module,
I need a dependency on JAXB and a dependency on the XML digital signature API (JSR 105).
The environment where Seam is deployed (JDK and application server) determines whether
these dependent artifacts are "provided" or not. For example, JDK 6 has both
JAXB and JSR 105 support, but when using JDK 5 it depends on the application server (and
the version of the application server) whether JAXB and JSR 105 are provided. I see no way
to express this kind of "conditional dependency" in module pom files. Two
1) Package the module with the dependent jars that are most likely not provided by the
runtime environment. Use the reference documentation to instruct the Seam user to
exclude/add dependencies based on his environment.
We normally do this, with JBoss AS 6 as the default runtime environment (which requires
2) Create different artifacts for different runtime environments (the
most used ones). This would have impact on how Seam distributions are made.
Is there already some best practice in Seam 3 regarding this?
