Confluence 4.0 not connecting to Jira 4.4.1 for user management

I have been trying to set up Confluence (4.0) to use Jira (4.4.1) instance for user management. The page for doing this during Confluence setup gives this error however: "This is not a valid url for JIRA 4.3 or later."

I have looked in the logs and the page that it is trying to access is /jira/rest/applinks/1.0/manifest, which returns 200. If I browse to that page, I see what looks like a perfectly reasonable response which includes <typeId>jira</typeId><version>4.4.1</version> which I would assume is what it's looking for, so I don't know why it is not working.

Any help appreciated!

I got to the bottom of this eventually after noticing a NoClassDefFoundError for a com.sun class in the Confluence log. The version of JDK1.6 that I was using was really old, so upgraded to the latest (1.6.0_27 at the time of writing) and used that instead, with successful results.
