We're trying to get DXA working on Websphere (both WAS and Liberty). We're trying to minimise the conflicts between jars that are present in the framework and in the application server. We can see that the framework pulls in jars from tomcat, jboss, and perhaps other things that are not relevant to a successful Websphere installation.
We're currently looking at editing the POM to exclude these dependencies. Is there a cleaner/better way to manage this within DXA 1.7?
Is there a good way to know whether a given dependency is only present to support a given platform?
