libcommons-lang3-java FTBFS due to circular build-dep (multiple
versions in classpath)
Status in libcommons-lang3-java package in Ubuntu:
maven relies on surefire for running tests and surefire depends on
libcommons-lang3-java. So whenever libcommons-lang3-java is updated
there are 2 versions in the classpath during the testing: the old
version in the deb package from surefire's dependency and the new
version that was just build. Unfortunately the old version takes
precedence in maven/surefire's classpath, thus any test that relies in
the new features/classes/interfaces/methods will fail.
This circular build dependency can only be broken by disabling testing
for any libcommons-lang3-java update that also modifies the tests - I
haven't found a way to force surefire/maven to load and use only the
new version under test (or, in other words, to prevent it from
loading/using the old classes).
The easiest way to skip the tests is by adding "maven.test.skip=true"
to debian/maven.properties .
