Hi, 

I'm maintaining an open source library called REST Assured which uses Groovy under the covers. I'd like to upgrade from Groovy 2.5.x to 3.0 but when I try to do this I run into troubles with the OSGi integration. I have a pax exam test that is defined like this:

@RunWith(PaxExam.class)
public class XmlPathOSGiITest {

    @Configuration
    public static Option[] configure() {
        return new Option[]
                {
                        /* System Properties */
                        systemProperty(EXAM_FAIL_ON_UNRESOLVED_KEY).value("true"),
                        systemProperty("org.ops4j.pax.logging.DefaultServiceLog.level").value("INFO"),

                        /* Hamcrest & JUnit bundles */
                        restAssuredJunitBundles(),

                        /* Transitive dependencies needed in the Pax Exam container.
                        Some of these need to be wrapped because they are not available as OSGi bundles */
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.apache.aries.spifly").artifactId("org.apache.aries.spifly.dynamic.bundle").version("1.2.1"),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.hamcrest").artifactId("hamcrest").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.apache.commons").artifactId("commons-lang3").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.codehaus.groovy").artifactId("groovy-json").versionAsInProject().noStart(),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.codehaus.groovy").artifactId("groovy-xml").versionAsInProject().noStart(),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.codehaus.groovy").artifactId("groovy").versionAsInProject(),

                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle().groupId("org.ccil.cowan.tagsoup").artifactId("tagsoup").versionAsInProject()),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("jakarta.xml.bind", "jakarta.xml.bind-api").versionAsInProject()),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("javax.activation", "activation").version("1.1.1")),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("org.apache.httpcomponents", "httpclient").versionAsInProject()),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("org.apache.httpcomponents", "httpmime").versionAsInProject()),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("org.apache.httpcomponents", "httpcore").versionAsInProject()),

                        /* Rest Assured dependencies needed in the Pax Exam container to be able to execute the tests below */
                        mavenBundle("io.rest-assured", "json-path").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle("io.rest-assured", "xml-path").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle("io.rest-assured", "rest-assured").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle("io.rest-assured", "rest-assured-common").versionAsInProject()
                };
    }

    @Test
    public void getUUIDParsesAStringResultToUUID() {
        final String UUID_XML = "<some>\n" +
                "  <thing id=\"1\">db24eeeb-7fe5-41d3-8f06-986b793ecc91</thing>\n" +
                "  <thing id=\"2\">d69ded28-d75c-460f-9cbe-1412c60ed4cc</thing>\n" +
                "</some>";

        final UUID uuid = from(UUID_XML).getUUID("some.thing[0]");

        assertThat(uuid, Matchers.equalTo(UUID.fromString("db24eeeb-7fe5-41d3-8f06-986b793ecc91")));
    }
}

This test used to pass in Groovy 2.5.7 but it fails after upgrading to 3.0.0 with this stacktrace:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.ScriptBytecodeAdapter not found by groovy-xml [20]

I have a pax-exam test that looks like this:

@RunWith(PaxExam.class)
public class XmlPathOSGiITest {

    @Configuration
    public static Option[] configure() {
        return new Option[]

                        systemProperty("org.ops4j.pax.logging.DefaultServiceLog.level").value("INFO"),

                        /* Hamcrest & JUnit bundles */
                        restAssuredJunitBundles(),

                        /* Transitive dependencies needed in the Pax Exam container.
                        Some of these need to be wrapped because they are not available as OSGi bundles */
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.apache.aries.spifly").artifactId("org.apache.aries.spifly.dynamic.bundle").version("1.2.1"),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.hamcrest").artifactId("hamcrest").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.apache.commons").artifactId("commons-lang3").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle().groupId("org.codehaus.groovy").artifactId("groovy-json").versionAsInProject().noStart(),

                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("org.apache.httpcomponents", "httpclient").versionAsInProject()),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("org.apache.httpcomponents", "httpmime").versionAsInProject()),
                        wrappedBundle(mavenBundle("org.apache.httpcomponents", "httpcore").versionAsInProject()),

                        /* Rest Assured dependencies needed in the Pax Exam container to be able to execute the tests below */
                        mavenBundle("io.rest-assured", "json-path").versionAsInProject(),
                        mavenBundle("io.rest-assured", "xml-path").versionAsInProject(),

                };
    }

    @Test
    public void getUUIDParsesAStringResultToUUID() {
        final String UUID_XML = "<some>\n" +
                "  <thing id=\"1\">db24eeeb-7fe5-41d3-8f06-986b793ecc91</thing>\n" +
                "  <thing id=\"2\">d69ded28-d75c-460f-9cbe-1412c60ed4cc</thing>\n" +
                "</some>";

        final UUID uuid = from(UUID_XML).getUUID("some.thing[0]");

        assertThat(uuid, Matchers.equalTo(UUID.fromString("db24eeeb-7fe5-41d3-8f06-986b793ecc91")));
    }
}

This used to work fine with Groovy 2.5 but after upgrading to Groovy 3.0 I get the following error:

I've checked mvn dependency:tree to make sure that I have no remnants of Groovy 2.5.x still in the classpath.

What could be the cause of this and how do I fix it? Note that you can find the project on github here

I originally posted this question on stackoverflow but was encouraged to post here as well.
