I have a requirement to upgrade our current production system from 4.1.2 to 5.0.2. In preparation to get to that point, I have setup a test JIRA installation on another system and will be doing the migration steps using the Restore from XML. I chose to use the WAR/EAR installer to keep it in track with the current production system and followed the instructions to a tee. However, when I start up JIRA from within Tomcat, it locks up and the following error is found in the catalina.out log file:
com.atlassian.util.concurrent.lazyreference$initializationexception: java.lang.noClassDefFoundError: /javax/transaction/Status
This is followed by: "Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/transaction/Status
at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClassl(Native Method)
and more of the same "at" statements.
I've searched for this error online, but I haven't really found anything that relates to what is causing this error and why it's stopping JIRA from starting.
Unfortunately I cannot provide the full stacktrace. Customer policy prevents me from doing so. As for a 3rd party plugin, wouldn't that require that I install one? This is a initial install without adding any additional plugins or anything. It's also on a Linux VM and there's no virus scan software installed.

Could be the other way around - your data might depend on a 3rd party plugin being available, and it isn't in your new system.
Can you see what happens if you run it with a clean empty database?
