I am trying to build a Karaf assembly using Karaf 4.1.1, Java 1.8.0_76-ea-b04, Maven 3.3.9, Netbeans 8.2 and macOS 10.12.4. I am getting an error message, even if I omit all my own features from the build (i.e. I build an empty Karaf):
java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.felix.httplite.osgi.HttpServiceImpl cannot be cast to org.osgi.service.http.HttpService
The problem seems to be that the latest version of org.apache.felix.httplite.complete, which provides org.apache.felix.httplite.osgi.HttpServiceImpl, i.e. 0.1.5, requires a version of java.servlet that is incompatible with the rest of Karaf 4.1.1, which - I think - expects 3.1.0. The following comes from the MANIFEST.MF of org.apache.felix.httplite.complete-0.1.5.jar:
So, any hints on how to stop Karaf trying to httplite? Or is there another way of avoiding this error? The following is an extract from the effective POM:
