Error installing plugin


I'm on Bamboo 4.1.2 and I'm getting an error trying to install the Sauce Labs on demand plugin (

The error exception I get is:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/nio/channels/SeekableByteChannel

The forum link below says it could be a missing jar for java. Do I need to just download that jar separately? Or is it a java version issue?

I'm on openJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b22).

Thanks and I look forward to your replies!

OpenJDK 6 is not supported. You need to install OpenJDK 7 or Oracle Java 6. See .


I have the same issue on Mac OS X with Oracle Java 6.

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/nio/channels/SeekableByteChannel


Thanks for any help,
