JIRA startup failed due to spring context error.

I have a JIRA standalone instance whose version is 5.1.8.

JIRA startup occasionally fails, not always. atlassian-jira.log gives the following message.

2013-07-24 04:36:04,492 Spring executor 6 ERROR [internal.dependencies.startup.DependencyWaiterApplicationContextExecutor] Expecting state (resolving-dependencies) not (dependencies-resolved) for context [NonValidatingOsgiBundleXmlApplicationContext(bundle=com.atlassian.gadgets.dashboard, config=osgibundle:/META-INF/spring/*.xml)]; assuming an interruption and bailing out

Do you have any ideas why this happens?

I searched related questions and found some examples.



But these cases seem to be due to time out. My atlassian-jira.log doesn't contain the phrase "time out", so I don't think these cases and my case have the same cause.

I found that an anti-virus software which I used caused this problem. I made the anti-virus software exclude ${JIRA.HOME}/data/plugins/.osgi-plugins from real-time scanning.
This problem have never happened since that.


i'd suggest this one


seems to be an indexing (cache) problem on your side.

Thank you for your comment.

Although the first messages of two log files are the same, there is no message like "caches/indexes does not exist" in my log file. So, I think my index files have no problem.


What causes it is that the stageTwo() is probably called the second time (spring bug ?). However, this needs more info, and more debug than the simple text here ....


What can I do to get more info?
