Confluence crashes on startup when trying to integrate with Crowd 2.5.3

We have followed the steps online to integrate Crowd 2.5.3 and Confluence 3.3. When try and restart Confluence it crashes with the exceptions below. We've traced it through and it appears to happen as soon as we copy crowd-integration-client-2.5.3.jar into CONFLUENCE confluence WEB-INF lib

Any ideas on what could be the cause of this?

Upgrading to 3.5 fixed this issue.

Hi Sam,

I believe the problem here is that Confluence 3.3 isn't compatible with Crowd 2.5.x because the Spring versions changed, which I believe would explain the error "Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/springframework/beans/factory/Aware" as this is certainly suggesting that there is a missing Spring-related class. Therefore I would suggest trying to hook up your Confluence to Crowd 2.4.x as these are still running on the same Spring version.

All the best,
John

Thanks. Its much asier to actually upgrade Confluence to 3.5(.13) - so we're going to do that.
