Atlassian SDK and JIRA required JDK mismatch

This question is in reference to Atlassian Developer Documentation: Run your plugin in the container


atlas-run --product jira --version 6.1

JIRA 6.1 requires Java 1.7 while the newest Atlassian SDK can be run only under JDK 1.8

When I try to execute this command under JDK 1.8, initializing JIRA will fail due to exception:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot create ConcurrentHashMap - neither JDK 1.5 nor backport-concurrent available on the classpath

On the other hand, under JDK 1.7 the Atlassian SDK will rise an error.

How can I get around that problem?


Kind Regards,

You can run an older version of JIRA with the latest Atlassian SDK version installed and Java 1.7 by specifying an older maven-plugin-version (AMPS):

atlas-run-standalone --product jira --version 6.1 --maven-plugin-version 6.1.2 --data-version 6.1

This works since the Maven AMPS plugin version 6.1.2 has been compiled with an older version of Java.

The options are available for atlas-run as well (see "atlas-run --help").

See for versions and compatibility.

The Atlassian sdk is using maven so if you set JAVA_HOME it should work. That said - JIRA 6.1 is eol:d...
