sdk 5.10.0 SEVERE error javassist-3.20.0-GA EOFException

I am getting this error using the latest sdk with Confluence 5.10.0, all other confluence versions work, except 5.10.0.


I get hundreds of these in the log file.... My plugin is missing functionality, specifically XHtmlContent does not work, and I'm not sure if this is related or yet another failure of Confluence 5.10.0.

How do we exactly fix this in the pom?

This issue can be resolved by adding the following line to your file:


This needs to be added to both the confluence tomcat files as well as the tomcat jar referenced from your maven repo. 


and here

I did a total new install of my operation system in order to get a absolutely clean Atlassian Sdk. Further I have created a totally new plugin using "atlas-create-confluence-plugin". However, the issue still exists.

Is this a bug of confluence or of the Atlassian SDK?

@Chris Kent Have you resolved this issue? 

Very disconcerting in that level is SEVERE and this error ^ displays a huge amount of stacktraces. According to [this|], it's a tomcat issue supposed to be fixed in tomcat 7.0.70 but the version packaged with Confluence 5.10.x is Tomcat 8.0.90. A few different fixes were tried including adding an ignore to the as per

Functionality doesn't SEEM to be impacted, but more thorough tests are needed.

How do we exactly fix this in the pom? is there an issue opened at Atlassian?
