Incompatible library version selenium / guava

My app has a hard dependency on or superior

+--- com.github.ben-manes.caffeine:guava:2.6.0
|    +--- com.github.ben-manes.caffeine:caffeine:2.6.0
|    --- (*)

But I am also using org.seleniumhq.selenium:selenium-java:3.0.1 which is incompatible with guava versions > 22.0 as discussed here:

I am pretty new to Java, what is the best course of action here ?

I have looked into class loaders but that looks like a pretty deep rabbit hole.



As you have a hard dependency on using org.seleniumhq.selenium:selenium-java:3.0.1 may put you on cross roads. But Selenium Release Notes clearly mentions the following guava dependencies :

  • Selenium v2.49.0 : Bump guava to version 19
  • Selenium v3.1.0 : Requires an update to the latest guava version 21.0
  • Selenium v3.5.0 : Bump guava to version 22.
  • Selenium v3.5.1 : Bump guava to version 23.
  • Selenium v3.12.0 : guava-23.6-jre
  • Selenium v3.13.0 : guava-25.0-jre
  • Selenium v3.14.0 : guava-25.0-jre
  • Selenium v3.141.0 : guava-25.0-jre
  • Selenium v3.141.5 : guava-25.0-jre
  • Selenium v3.141.59 : guava-25.0-jre


So Selenium v3.12.0 have got guava-23.6-jre which clearly fits to your requirement.
