Strange exception invoking a servlet

Hi,

I've successfully loaded a plu-gin with a servlet, but when I invoke it, the following exception is raised:

Any idea?

Thanks Pablo.

Thanks for the input.

The problem was that the dependency scope was missing initially ( -> compile) and when I canged it to provided the SDK still bundled the jasper.jar in the plug-in.

Running mvn clean and compile resolved the problem.

Ah yes. The build dependencies don't seem to include all of the elements in pom.xml

That's bitten me before so I tend to use:

rm -f target/*.jar && atlas-package

Ugly but effective

Some jar file exists in two versions and both have been loaded, so JIRA isn't sure which one to use? Maybe the one with this class: org/apache/felix/framework/ModuleImpl

Yes, but I do not know how to resolve it:

The problem is that JSPs files implements this interface:

org.apache.jasper.runtime.JspSourceDependent

which is in the Tomcat WEB-INF/lib/jasper.jar library and it's NOT visible from plug-ins.

So, I've added the dependency in my pom.xml:

<dependency>
	<groupId>org.apache.tomcat</groupId>
	<artifactId>jasper</artifactId>
	<version>6.0.36</version>
	<scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>

And now, the interface becomes visible but I get the LinkageError. As result, a NotClassFoundException is raised when JSP is invoked :(

The JSPs are bundled with the plugin and I can see them loaded by JIRA from the Administration panel. Hence, JIRA is loading them by using the jasper.jar library located in the JIRA's WEB-INF/lib directory, and when they are invoked, then JIRA uses the jasper.jar lib bundled with the plug-in.

It's a pitty, because this is the only step to be resolved in order to bundle JSP applications in JIRA plug-ins, and I'm pretty sure that it can be fixed with some extra configuration in the pom.xml and (or not) in the spring context.
