atlas-run-standalone --product confluence --version 5.9.0-OD-58-008 not launching

Thomas Berger Jul 07, 2015

I'm attempting to do the Atlassian Connect tutorial 'Manage your Confluence instance'. 

I've tried both Mac OS and Windows with a fresh install and I always get a 503 error after the downloads are complete and tomcat is started (http://localhost:1990/confluence/). I've got the same on 127.0.0.1 and using the hostname.

HTTP Status 503 - This application is not currently available

Is the tutorial broken since Atlassian renamed Ondemand to Cloud???

This looks potentially like the JAVA 8 issue though I'm not sure.

Can you confirm / try running it again with your JAVA_HOME set to JDK 8?

P.S. This is how I do that on OSX:

export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_45.jdk/Contents/Home

I'm using Java 7 (https://developer.atlassian.com/docs/getting-started/downloads "All installations require version 1.7.x of the JDK"). 

echo $JAVA_HOME
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_80.jdk/Contents/Home

However there seems to be inconsistent instructions since https://developer.atlassian.com/docs/getting-started/set-up-the-atlassian-plugin-sdk-and-build-a-project/set-up-the-sdk-prerequisites-for-linux-or-mac is listing JDK 8: "The Atlassian SDK relies on 8 (1.8.X) of the Oracle JDK. Before installing the SDK, verify that you have installed the JDK 8 (1.8.X)."

I will try using JDK 8 now...

I can confirm that using JDK 8 is the solution. Atlassian, please update your documentation!
