Jenkins build for jira plugin cast error

Hi all,

When I try to build a Jira plugin with Jenkins, I get the following error:

[INFO] Unable to execute mojo

Embedded error: Failed to read /var/opt/hudson/workspace/ALM-JQL-Functions/target/surefire-reports/
org.dom4j.DocumentFactory cannot be cast to org.dom4j.DocumentFactory

Which version of Jenkins are you on ?

There is a simular bug which seems to be resolved in 1.554

We are using Jenkins ver. 1.509.2.1. Maybe updating Jenkins will solve the problem, but I don't know when Jenkins update is planned in our company. I would like to have another solution, which does not imply Jenkins update.
