Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2018-06-06

  • Applies to: v15.14.0

  • Internal reference: SUPPORT-2689


Fixes an issue where two jars provided conflicting classes with the same package name; this results in errors if a filter or groovy script used the 'org.json' package. This patch fixes the issue by forcing the use of 'json-20160810.jar' (org.json:json), which provides everything 'json-1.8.jar' (com.tdunning:json) did and more. See for further details about the change.
