I’ve implemented my own authenticator that extends XWikiAuthServiceImpl. My extension has one dependency (apart from servlet one):
<dependency> <groupId>net.dongliu</groupId> <artifactId>requests</artifactId> <version>5.0.8</version> </dependency>
I built this using
mvn -e install and then manually copied the
.jar file to
WEB-INF/lib/ directory. And restarted the docker container. The extension fails to load with this error:
I understand that it’s not able to find the dependency. I’m not a Java/XWiki expert. I dont know whether it is a Java/maven issue, or it is specific to XWiki. I have no idea as to how dependencies are managed? Does the runtime download the missing dependencies? How do I solve it?
I see files like
xwiki-platform-wiki-user-api-10.11.9.xed in the
WEB-INF/lib directory. What is that? Required by what? Is that related to this issue? Do I need to create one and copy that too to this location?
