deployed JSP throws java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError

 

Hi I am trying to demo clover test optimization in my company do decrease the test execution time. I have a simple JSP Page that refers one of the class file. Project builds fine and get deployed. When I use clover code coverage then only the deployed JSP doesnt work. when i deploy with clover using

 mvn clean clover2:setup verify clover2:clover.

if I open the JSP deployed using :- http://localhost:8080/demo/Math2.jsp it throws error as below :-

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.ariba.demo.App
	org.apache.jsp.Math2_jsp._jspService(Math2_jsp.java:64)
	org.apache.jasper.runtime.HttpJspBase.service(HttpJspBase.java:70)
	javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:723)
	org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServletWrapper.service(JspServletWrapper.java:388)
	org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.serviceJspFile(JspServlet.java:313)
	org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet.service(JspServlet.java:260)
	javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:723)

I do see instrumented classes refer this image . In Atlasian answers somebody informed to downgrade to tomcat 6. I did. Still i see the same issue. I need to demo this tomorrow to our team. Here is the project source code  . Please help me to get rid of this.

Thanks

Hi Shankar,

1) You have an unnecessary dependency to maven-clover2-plugin:

<dependencies>
  ...
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.atlassian.maven.plugins</groupId>
    <artifactId>maven-clover2-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>4.0.1</version>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>

instead of this, you shall declare a dependency to Clover Core:

<dependencies>
  ...
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.atlassian.clover</groupId>
    <artifactId>clover</artifactId>
    <version>4.0.1</version>
  </dependency>
</dependencies>

 

2) By the way: the maven-clover2-plugin's version number is missing:

<build>
  <plugins>
    <plugin>
      <groupId>com.atlassian.maven.plugins</groupId>
      <artifactId>maven-clover2-plugin</artifactId>
      <version>4.0.1</version> <!-- add this -->
     ...

 

3) It's also good to define a <jdk> property for maven-clover2-plugin and/or to define <source> property for maven-compiler-plugin. Otherwise your demo project will not compile under JDK8 (a reason is that Clover sees Java 8 and assumes "1.8" source level for instrumentation; at the same time maven-compiler-plugin assumes "1.3" source level).

 

Nevertheless, compilation of your demo project fails (mvn clean verify):

...\ITSeleniumIDETests.java:[48,35] error: no suitable constructor found for ProcessBuilder(String,String)
could not parse error message:     constructor ProcessBuilder.ProcessBuilder(List) is not applicable
      (actual and formal argument lists differ in length)
    constructor ProcessBuilder.ProcessBuilder(String...) is not applicable
      (actual and formal argument lists differ in length)
...\ITTest.java:37: error: method executeScript in interface JavascriptExecutor cannot be applied to given types;
        return js.executeScript(script);
                 ^

 

4) Furthermore, the cargo-maven2-plugin does not have a dependency on com.atlassian.clover:clover artifact. Due to this, the clover.jar is not available on Tomcat's class path and the most probably this is a source of the error you have. Please try adding something like this:

 

&lt;plugin&gt;
  &lt;groupId&gt;org.codehaus.cargo&lt;/groupId&gt;
  &lt;artifactId&gt;cargo-maven2-plugin&lt;/artifactId&gt;
  &lt;version&gt;1.2.0&lt;/version&gt;
  &lt;configuration&gt;
    &lt;container&gt;
      &lt;dependencies&gt;
        &lt;!-- We need clover.jar to be present in container classpath --&gt;
        &lt;dependency&gt;
          &lt;groupId&gt;com.cenqua.clover&lt;/groupId&gt;
          &lt;artifactId&gt;clover&lt;/artifactId&gt;
        &lt;/dependency&gt;
      &lt;/dependencies&gt;
    &lt;/container&gt;
  ...
  &lt;/configuration&gt;
&lt;/plugin&gt;
