Quick Fix: Solving org.glassfish.deployment
.common.DeploymentException: CDI deployment failure – Cassandra Datastax Java Driver, Maven, Glassfish 4

I have posted this on stackoverflow.com, but I’m posting this here for other readers and myself as a reference just in case anybody bump into this issue. This as a short solution/workaround for those who encounters error in using Datastax’s Java Driver on Glassfish 4 through Maven deployment.

As was written on Datastax’s web site, the dependency of the driver is:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.datastax.cassandra</groupId>
    <artifactId>cassandra-driver-core</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.1</version>
</dependency>

Unfortunately, if you deploy this to Glassfish 4 (at the time of writting, it is Glassfish 4.0) through Maven, it will throw org.glassfish.deployment.common.DeploymentException: CDI deployment failure…just like the below:

org.glassfish.deployment.common.DeploymentException: CDI deployment failure:WELD-001408 Unsatisfied dependencies for type [Set] with qualifiers [@Default] at injection point [[BackedAnnotatedParameter] Parameter 1 of [BackedAnnotatedConstructor] @Inject com.google.common.util.concurrent.ServiceManager(Set)]

Anyway, the error seems to be caused by a conflict with Google’s Guava library, which somehow is part of the dependency of Datastax’s Cassandra Java Drievr. So, what I did was just exclude the Guava library as part of the dependency like the below and the application worked fine:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.datastax.cassandra</groupId>
    <artifactId>cassandra-driver-core</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.1</version>
    <exclusions>
        <exclusion>
            <groupId>com.google.guava</groupId>
            <artifactId>guava</artifactId>
        </exclusion>
    </exclusions>
</dependency>

Hope you find this useful.
