I am trying to upgrade JIRA from 6.1 TO 6.2 on my tomcat6. I am using the same sql database and home directory for jira. I just updated the jira-application.properties file and dbconfig.xml. Looks eveything fine to me.

I dont know if this is the license issue?? coz, its also giving me error as below :

jiraLicenseService should not be null

Can someone plz help me fix this issue?

Hi Samar,

Apparently JIRA is failing to startup due to this error:

2014-03-11 17:55:45,347 main ERROR [atlassian.jira.startup.LauncherContextListener] Unable to start JIRA.

com.atlassian.cache.CacheException: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/transaction/Status

And this error refers to this KB, I'd suggest to double check if Tomcat libraries where copied as instructed here.

Cheers
