I just bundled my application using Docking Frames and I get the “Annoying Warning” that I not use docking-frames-common. But I am using docking-frames-common with CControl.
The issue is that I’m bundling the Jar in a single executable jar file with the maven-assembly-plugin with the make-my-jar-with-dependencies assembly. I suppose that docking-frames is checking somehow that the docking-frames-common.jar file is in the class path. With the assembly the docking-frames-common.jar file per se is not in the class path, but all resources and Java classes are bundled in my application Jar file.
