Illegal reflective access by BytecodeProviderImpl_ImplementV2Proxy Edited

After upgrading from version 7.0.2 to 7.2.0 I have some WARNING messages in logs:

19-Dec-2019 12:47:52.184 INFO [Catalina-utility-2] org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationContext.log 1 Spring WebApplicationInitializers detected on classpath

Enable debug logging for this logger for a complete list of JARs that were scanned but no TLDs were found in them. Skipping unneeded JARs during scanning can improve startup time and JSP compilation time.

Can't tell you what's causing this but the illegal reflective access error was added with Java 9. So if you can try to run Confluence on Java 8 that might fix this problem for you.

Ok! But I just run confluence inside docker container with official image atlassian/confluence-server.

There Java 11.0.5:

root@wiki:/var/atlassian/application-data/confluence# java --version
openjdk 11.0.5 2019-10-15
OpenJDK Runtime Environment AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.5+10)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.5+10, mixed mode)

Do you have image with current version of Confluence and Java 8?

That is definitely weird then. You could try going through the tags and choose one that specifically says JDK8. E.g. this one:

I've the same, but it seems to me that atlassian should solve that, not the community or paying customers. I will report it. I don't want to use jdk 8 anymore.

Like # people like this

Problem still exists, tag 7.3-jdk8 does not exist, tag 7-jdk8 exists but does not work because its build is too old for the new data.

I have the same messages in my docker logs

I have the same issue

Issue still exist!
