Strange exception: InvocationTargetException

A JIRA user seems to be having strange issues resulting in SOAP not behaving properly. The problem "goes away" when disabling Greenhopper. It appears to be related to a Greenhopper listener. From their log, it appears that there are lots of other related failures as well but they may not be showing up for them.

In terms of the relevant parts of the log:

This appears to be me to be a database-related issue, but I'm not sure what the exact problem is. Any suggestions on how to debug this? We have verified that disabling Greenhopper makes the issue go away. The user has said that they have upgraded Greenhopper to the latest (which appears to have been re-released?)

Hi Sohail,

Can you please raise a bug on against the GreenHopper (GHS) project?

Please include the error stack trace, what JIRA/GreenHopper you were running, as well as the database type/version (looks like mysql)



Concerning this error message,

SQLException: Binary logging not possible

you should refer to this related KB

and add


to your MySQL server configuration.
