Subject: Re: [wildfly-dev] Question about usage of jboss spec versions
For the longest time java ee related spec apis ware not officially
available in any maven repository.
Only lately with latest version of Java/Jakarta EE spec apis are starting
to appear properly in maven central.
Another reason is as Petr said, some service loader configs (w)are
different and in some cases even some impl classes (w)are added.
