loader (instance of org/apache/felix/framework/ModuleImpl$ModuleClassLoader) previously initiated loading for a different type with name "javax/servlet/http/HttpServletRequest"

Hello,

I am developing a webwork action that has a reading a xlsx file to use this POI. In implementing the action get the following errors:

[WARNING] [talledLocalContainer] GRAVE: Servlet.service() para servlet action lanz¾ excepci¾n

Thank you very much, it worked but I have another problem. Reading the xlsx file with POI gives the following error:

Any ideas?

Thank you very much!

The scope for the servlet API should be provided, not the default, which is compile.

can you explain why?

I am getting java.lang.LinkageError with my own library and trying to figure out where it comes from. Im suspecting the scope of dependency for my own library might be wrong.

What is the library, is it one that is also included in jira itself?

no it is my own library which is a simple maven project.

actually, i have already found a workaround. let me tell you the whole story...

i have developed this library a while ago. I have pulled in the dependency in my jira plugin. Then i was able to use that library as it seemed. However, one of the classes failed to load at runtime (just one class, most classes were loading without problems) with LinkageError telling me that there were multiple classes of this type on classpath.

now i have solved this problem by instantiating this class manually instead of using constructor injection as i was used to. This solved the problem.

So i guess, it may be related to OSGi or Spring dependency management. Not sure if it is a bug or not.

Thank you very much!
