Hi Naveen,

The application will not work with Tomcat 1.8. It is not compatible.

Hi Edwin,

You are confirming that jira 3.13.3 will not be supported in

tomcat 8.

Am i Correct ?

can you please suggest me the solution ?

Do I need to upgrade the JIRA Version ? If yes , how ?

Those versions are completely incompatible, it's never going to work properly.

Jira 3 is old, totally unsupported and has known security problems.  You need to upgrade it if you want to use it with a secure Tomcat and Java version and to get it supportable.

I'm quite surprised it worked in Tomcat 7, as the version of Java required to run Tomcat 7 is incompatible with Jira 3, and Tomcat 5 is the last one that could run Jira 3

Your solution is pretty much "upgrade"
