             Summary: Remove pax exam dependency from org.apache.aries.testsupport.unit
                 Key: ARIES-1188
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARIES-1188
             Project: Aries
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christian Schneider


Like described in http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/aries-dev/201405.mbox/%3C5370E1EA.9040008%40die-schneider.net%3E

I propose to remove the pax exam dependency from org.apache.aries.testsupport.unit. So some
reasons why I think this makes sense:
- testsupport is used in many aries projects. Many of these do not need the pax exam depdenency.
So the dependency binds all these project to a particular pax exam version and increases coupling
- pax exam is only needed for two classes in test support. ExtraOptions and AbstractIntegrationTest.
ExtraOptions is not really necessary with newer pax exam versions as most of the features
are available directly in the pax exam DSL. AbstractIntegrationTest just uses the pax exam
@Inject. In pax exam 3 this is replaced with javax @Inject. So this dependency is not necessary
anymore.

As far as I know this means we need a new major version of testsupport as we remove a public
class.

I will provide a patch.
