vso.xml generation

I'm having an issue with vso.xml generation in a plugin I'm developing against the new 5.5.1 SDK.

In my pom file I've included the following, which to my understanding lets me link against dependencies in the vCO platform.







I've created a simple java class which looks like the following https://gist.github.com/jbweber/06c0a319af559cd44a5e

With this configuration I get a build failure because the scope for provided deps is provided and Jackson isn't loaded on the class path when the maven plugin runs.

I can solve this two ways:

1) Explicitly define Jackson as a dependency which then includes the jars in my dar file.

2) Create a decorator for my static helper class which contains the VSO annotations, and calls through to the other class behind it.

With #2 since the plugin doesn't need to parse and validate the import of ObjectMapper the build does not fail.

What is the correct way to solve this problem?
