Bamboo – express installation is stuck

Edited

Hello,

I'm trying to set up Bamboo on my local computer. I've been waiting for the express installation to finish for like 30 mins now:

The log has a number of errors but I'm not sure how to post them here. I don't see how to attach files on this forum. There are various exception types such as...

  • Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/bind/JAXBException
    • this is by far the most frequently registered exception
  • org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'org.springframework.transaction.config.internalTransactionAdvisor': Cannot resolve reference to bean 'org.springframework.transaction.annotation.AnnotationTransactionAttributeSource#0' while setting bean property
  • org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: Failed to initialize component [Connector[HTTP/1.1-8443]]

Let me know what kind of additional information you need and if there's a practical way of uploading files to this thread.

Can there be a Java version mismatch somehow? Like Bamboo needs a certain Java version but it's accessing an older one? Is there a way to set Java home for Bamboo?

Thanks for your help,

Andras

Hi @Andras Nemes

Can there be a Java version mismatch somehow? Like Bamboo needs a certain Java version but it's accessing an older one? Is there a way to set Java home for Bamboo?

I think you already know the answer. I believe you are using an incompatible JAVA version. Possibly a new one, 11. Bamboo needs JDK 8 (1.8).

More details about the supported platforms can be found at:

Suggested steps moving forward:

  1. Stop Bamboo process
  2. Make sure you have JDK 1.8 installed and the JAVA_HOME is pointing to it
  3. If the <Bamboo_Home> was created (which I believe it wasn't), just remove it
  4. Start the Bamboo process again

 

What if I'm wrong and the Java version is correct?

Please try to find the first error that shows up in your logs (considering time execution)  and share it here =]

Hi Daniel,

Ok, thanks for your answer. 

I was hoping I could set the JDK home for Bamboo through some setting. Pointing out the JDK home globally can interfere with other applications.

Best regards,

Andras

Hi @Andras Nemes

You can set a different version just for Bamboo.

  1. Go to <BAMBOO_INSTALL>/bin/setenv.sh
  2. Add the following variable exports at the beginning of this file:
    export JAVA_HOME=<JAVA_JDK_HOME>
    export JRE_HOME=<JAVA_JDK_HOME>/jre

    ⚠️ Update <JAVA_JDK_HOME> with the path of your JAVA JDK.

I hope it helps.
