Crowd upgrade from 2.2.4 to 2.4.0 fails. Bootstrap Error: Not enabled: Crowd REST API

I am performing an upgrade on Crowd to the latest version according to the steps described on http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/Upgrading+Crowd+via+Automatic+Database+Upgrade

But when I start the new installation, it fails and shows me the error page:

2012-02-10 17:20:14 fatal Required plugins failed to initialise. Please check the logs for errors and restart Crowd. Not enabled: Crowd REST API

Please help me, i want to get this up and running so my developers can continue with their jobs :)

Have you solved the problem? Because I have the same one.

Nope, haven't solved it yet. I will be downgrading to the previous version...

Okay, could you please answer if you solved the problem? Or if the downgrade works?

Thank you in advance.

I was able to get past this error by switching my JDK version from 1.7 to 1.6. (It was a slightly different problem, but was yeilding the same error message).

I got the same error with a fresh install using jdk 1.7. After switching to JDK 1.6 now it is working.

I am wondering if this has been report to Atlassians's support?
