Valiantys base plugin exception


Recently, we've upgraded JIRA to version 6.3.7.

However, when we want to use functionality from Valiantys base plugin - Link a new issue - we got 404 error response and this exception in log: 


2014-10-20 15:24:12,802 http-bio-8381-exec-1559 ERROR jira-admin-connector 924x1143148x5 17zhqui, /secure/CreateIssueAndLink.jspa [jira.config.webwork.JiraActionFactory] Error autowiring Action 'com.valiantys.jira.plugins.exocet.webwork.CreateIssueAndLinkDetailsAction'.
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'com.valiantys.jira.plugins.exocet.webwork.CreateIssueAndLinkDetailsAction': Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Could not instantiate bean class [com.valiantys.jira.plugins.exocet.webwork.CreateIssueAndLinkDetailsAction]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.CreateIssueDetails.<init>(Lcom/atlassian/jira/issue/IssueFactory;Lcom/atlassian/jira/web/action/issue/IssueCreationHelperBean;Lcom/atlassian/jira/bc/issue/IssueService;)V


Is there a way, how to solve this ?

This is a binary incompatibility caused by the plugin extending an action that is in jira-core.  There are no API stability guarantees for jira-core classes.

Valiantys will need to release a new version of their plugin to fix this.

For the curious, the action's constructor was changed as part of fixing and though you did not specify the old version you were upgrading *from*, my guess is that it must have been pre-6.3.
