I've set up my development environment to start working on some plugins, but the atlas-run command fails to load JIRA with this error:
JIRA Startup Failed
|You cannot access JIRA at present. Look at the table below to identify the reasons|
Some investigation lead to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-22633, but it doesn't give any solution to resolve the issue. Is it possible to increase the timeout on these plugins to give JIRA more time to load? If so, where can it be done? Or is the only solution to work on a more powerful machine?
That's a much bigger question than just a small handful of plugins
Jira does not work properly with Java 1.7 yet. I understand Atlassian have it on the to-do list, but I've no idea how close.
You need to use 1.6 for the foreseeable future, and probably assume that you'll need to upgrade to Jira 5.something-higher-than-2 to use Java 1.7
In my job we have found that Java 1.7 and Tomcat 7 have a additional Servlet abstract methods that need to be created for them to work properly.
Another big one is request.getParameterMap().keySet() now returns Objects instead of Strings
Just going to be a pain to make a VM that is different from everything else we have...
Thanks for the answer
I really don't think you're going to have to wait for a vastly interminable time - it's very much in Atlassian's interest to get it working with Java 1.7 and they're definitely working on it.
Bear in mind we live in a world where some people still use and expect support for Internet Explorer, so Atlassian are still way ahead of a lot of vendors. (Oh, sorry, yes, I suppose I should have said IE7. Not that 8 and 9 are huge improvements, still way behind all the real browsers)
Depends on why they aren't loading in time. You should check the log file from startup to failure for errors - that could tell you what is going wrong (throwing timeout or hardware at it if the error is "something is misconfigured" isn't going to help you). If the logs are totally clean, then yes, you may need more resources - what are you running it on?
This seems like bundled JIRA plugins got disabled and caused JIRA failed to start. Here is the related KB that could help you to solve the problem:
Hope it helps!
