Is it possible to disable CWD Context?, in our implementation we don't really need any of the CWD_* libraries since Tridion won't be used for device detection and CWD_* are adding an unnecessary load.

Note: We also won't be using ADF

No matter which version of Tridion/SDL Web you are using, you can just exclude CWD dependencies if they're coming transitively. https://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-dependency-mechanism.html#Dependency_Management

  • You cannot really exclude the dependencies, I tried that before and got spring initialization errors. I was looking for a dxa.properties solution where we can indicate that we don't need cwd
