Hey Guido,

Henry is perfectly right: GreenHopper cannot start in Java 7

This has been fixed in GreenHopper 6.0.8 released a few days ago.

I'd check if my license supports it and try an upgrade. ;-)

Hi Guido,

Have you tried to install Greenhopper manually?

The steps are:

Download directly at Atlassian Marketplace the Greenhopper 6.0.7 plugin.

To install you'll basically need to:

  1. Navigate to Administration » Plugins » Plugins;
  2. Click on Upload Plugin in the Install Plugins tab;
  3. Point Greenhopper file into From My Computer box, and;
  4. Click on Upload.

In addition you can take a look at Installing a plugin manually.

I hope it helps.

Hi Guido,

what's your Java version? Note: GreenHopper6.0.7 does not support Java 7!

Please install Java 6

Hope that helps
