Fisheye 2.7.8 Error When Connecting to JIRA


I just downloaded the Fisheye 2.7.8 free trial and installed on a Solaris 10 computer. In the Setup Wizard it asks for the url of our JIRA instance, the sysadmin login and password. After I enter these and click connect to JIRA, I get this fun error, I tried what it says but I still get the same error. Any ideas?

An error occurred: java.lang.LinkageError: JAXB 2.0 API is being loaded from the bootstrap classloader, but this RI (from jar:file:/export/home/fisheye/fecru-2.7.8/lib/jaxb-impl-2.1.10.jar!/com/sun/xml/bind/v2/model/impl/ModelBuilder.class) needs 2.1 API. Use the endorsed directory mechanism to place jaxb-api.jar in the bootstrap classloader. (See Please refer to the logs for details.

Thank you.

Hi Sline.

I know this answer is opened for quite some time but this is probably caused by your Java version, it is JAXB 2.0 but fisheye requires JAXB21. Could you please try updating to the latest version of the Java Virtual Machine which contains the correct version of the library.
