We are using WAS 8.5.5 Liberty Profile with jax-rs feature to develop RESTful services.
We have created some custom user handlers as described in wink documentation. Theese handlers worked fine in WAS 22.214.171.124 Liberty Profile. When theese handlers are loaded in WAS 8.5.5 we run into problems.
The problem shows up when the handlers are loaded from the servlet and the DeploymentConfiguration.initHandlers() is called.
This method use org.apache.commons.ClassUtils but Apache Commons Lang is not on the Class Path.
Since liberty is build up on OSGi modules with their own classloaders we found no way to solve this.
I hope that handlers should be supported also in 8.5.5.
