Building Confluence 5.8.5 Source code fails

Chris Solgat Jun 30, 2015

It is failing on the confluence-webdriver-test project.  I've looked for the missing jar file, but cannot find it anywhere.  Any ideas where I can find the webdriver-page-weight-1.4.jar file?

Here is the build failure message --

I only needed the confluence-5.8.5.jar so I never looked into this once I realized that my jar had been created. I had a support ticket open at the time and they are going to open a new ticket for this. As soon as I have the information, I will post it here.

Hey folks,

Can you try downloading the webdriver-page-weight-1.4.jar and test if you can build the source code?

Sorry but how to download this jar?

Hi all!

We have received a few support tickets about this issue, so I wanted to be sure that an answer was posted to this page. We have reported this bug and provided the jar file and instructions on including it in the source for build at

There are a few other related bugs that you might run into as well after getting past this webdriver-page-weight-1.4.jar dependency missing error that might be helpful as well:
