atlas-run: Unable to scan for host components in plugin clases

I've searched through all available topics in the Atlassian community and couldn't find a resolution.

The error message is:

Could anyone help in identifying what is the cause of this?

Hi Dani,

Which java source level are you using to compile your plugin? I'm asking you that because a very similar problem was observed when we were switching from Java 1.7. to 1.8


Hey @Gabriel Ribeiro

I couldn't find any Java version specified in the pom file, could it be the problem?

Hi Dani,

Usually, if don't specify the Java version, Maven will use the default JDK option, you can check what's the default version running mvn -version in the terminal.

To specify which JDK version you want Maven to use to compile your project, you can set the -source and -target options in the compiler or, you can add the following parameters to the POM file:









You will find more details in the Apache Maven Plugin documentation. 


So I have been using JDK 1.8 to compile, But Bamboo says that for that specific version they support 1.8 JDK version.
