Known Issues

The Phoenix artifacts provided in the Maven repository have transitive dependencies on some artifacts that are not available either in the Apache central repository, the Cloudera provided CDH repository, or the Cloudera provided Phoenix repository.

Workaround: When you add a dependency on any of the provided Maven Phoenix artifacts, you must exclude the org.glassfish.web:javax.servlet.jsp artifact. For example:
<dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.phoenix</groupId>
            <artifactId>phoenix-core</artifactId>
            <version>5.0.0-cdh6.2.0</version>
            <exclusions>
                <exclusion>
                    <groupId>org.glassfish.web</groupId>
                    <artifactId>javax.servlet.jsp</artifactId>
                </exclusion>
            </exclusions>
        </dependency>

Affected Versions: CDH 6.2.0, CDH 6.3.0.
