Could not find a field-type definition with name "oracle11g"

Hi, all!

I'm installing jira-5.2.8 war-distribution. While first starting, I catch java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not find a field-type definition with name "oracle11g"

As says here https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Connecting+JIRA+to+Oracle

I've just configured dbconfig.xml in jira home directory ( <database-type>oracle11g</database-type>).

And in entityengine.xml I actually have only oracle and oracle10 field types.

hey Maxim, change your database type in dbconfig from oracle11g to oracle10g instead.

Thnx for your fast answer. Is it ok that I will have mismatch between oracle 11g database and dbconfig?

I think it should be fine as it seems the oracle10g was needed in the configuration. There's been some confusion with oracle compatibility and we have a ticket tracking here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-30743
