SSO integration issue after JIRA upgrade

I have a running instance of JIRA 4.2 with integrated SSO, and we are in process of upgrading JIRA to 5.2. When i setup the SSO integration aby put and modify all the related files, it redirects perfectly on SSO url but come back to JIRA showing some error like "java.lang.AbstractMethodError". I have attached a error of above error.

Cause:
java.lang.AbstractMethodError: com.atlassian.configurable.SMAunthenticator.getUser(Ljava/lang/String;)Ljava/security/Principal;

Stack Trace: [hide]

Hi Panguin

Are you using Crowd or a custom SSO authentication? In this case, please don't forge to add the new class in the related Tomcat classes path.

Perhaps the following link could be useful to understand a little bit about this:

It is a custom authenticator, the getUser method is giving problem...

getUser(String arg0) is giving problem; last time it was a method in DefaultAuthenticator, but now in JIRA API it is a abstract method now. so i got to implement the getUser(String arg0) on my own.

Anyone can share how to implement getUser(String arg0) in the getUser(request, response)????
