SSO integration issue with JIRA 5.0.2

We have a running instance of JIRA 4.2.1 with integrated SSO, now we are in a process of upgrading JIRA to 5.0.2 version. We have done almost all the required steps and JIRA 5.0.2 is running perfectly with existing database. But when I am deploying the existing SSO integration related files it redirects perfectly on SSO url but when it come back to JIRA it shows some error like "java.lang.AbstractMethodError". I have attached a screen shot of above error.

Thanks in Advance.

Did you also extend your Authenticator implementation class from JiraSeraphAuthenticator? This is the class used now in seraph-config.xml.

if you have extended you implementation class from DefaultAuthenticator only you will get the error since getUser is an abstract method in DefaultAuthenticator As an alternative you could keep on extending DefaultAuthenticator but you had to implement everything in getUser(request,response) and avoid to call getUser(name) from there.

Thanks Dieter, your solution works well..........
