Aspose libaries and Maven assembly plugin

I tried to assembly a jar including aspose pdf as dependency.
It seems to hang the assembly pluging, after 1 hour I didn’t get the result.
I suppose the problem is the code obfuscation, but I’m not sure.
Anyway removing the dependency everithing works as before.
Could You suggest a soluton ?


Can you please share a bit more details like how you are trying to achieve your requirements? Like how you are assembling a JAR? using which tool? Please share the steps to reproduce the same issue at our end so that we can further proceed to assist you accordingly.

I use maven assembly plugin, as usual, in order to create a single jar file containing all classes of a list of dependencies.
Usually that operation takes 3/4 minutes.
When I add one of aspose libraries (I tried using aspose-pdf and aspose-word-for-jasperreports, but only one at time) it become a never ending operation (I left it running for more than one hour and I was forced to stop it).
I upload the pom and the assembly file.
