    Dependency attribute optional="true" not supported for deployment modules?

      Setting optional="true" on a dependency in jboss-deployment-structure.xml didn't work as expected. Allthough the dependency is declared as optional the dependent WAR fails when the optional dependency isn't present:

      jboss-deployment-structure.xml of dependency-consumer.war:

      <jboss-deployment-structure>
           <deployment> 
              <dependencies>
                    <module name="deployment.optional-dependency" optional="true" />
              </dependencies>
           </deployment>
      </jboss-deployment-structure>
      

       

      jboss-deployment-structure.xml of dependency-provider.ear:

      <jboss-deployment-structure>
           <module name="deployment.optional-dependency">
               <resources>
                   <resource-root path="my-optional.jar" />
      
               </resources>
      
           </module>
      </jboss-deployment-structure>
      

       

      When i change the module name referenced by the consumer to something without the deployment. prefix (e.g. "dependency-producer-ear.my-dependency" the optional flag seems to work. I can deploy the dependency-consumer.war without having the dependency-provider.ear deployed. But unfortunately i can't declare such a name within the consumer since it leads to the exception shown below.

       

      javax.xml.stream.XMLStreamException: Additional module name dependency-producer-ear.my-dependency is not valid. Names must start with 'deployment.'
      

       

      Is it a bug that the optional flag is ignored for deployment modules? I couldn't find any hint (neither in the classloading documentation nor in the jboss-deployment-structure-1_1.xsd) that optional isn't supported for deployment modules.
