JSONException when retrieving issue with JRJC

I try to retrieve an existing issue from Jira using Java Rest Client version 2.0.0-m2. That's the code:

104         IssueRestClient issueClient = null;
105         Issue issue = null;
106         Promise<Issue> promise = null;
108         try {
109             issueClient = getJiraClient().getIssueClient();
110             promise = issueClient.getIssue(issueId);
111             issue = promise.claim();
112             // issue = promise.get();

Method getJiraClient() returns a ready to use object which is initialized like this:

53         URI uri = null;
 54         JiraRestClientFactory factory = null;
 56         try {
 58             uri = new URI(getJiraUrl());
 59             LOG.debug("Trying to access " + uri);
 61             factory = new AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory();
 62             jiraClient = factory.createWithBasicHttpAuthentication(uri, getUser(), getPassword());
 63             setJiraClient(jiraClient);
 64             LOG.debug("Initialized Jira client " + getJiraClient());

However, while executing the first code snippet I get this JSONException in line 111 or 112 depending on what I use:

Caused by: com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.RestClientException: org.codehaus.jettison.json.JSONException: A JSONObject text must begin with '{' at character 0 of

I didn't find an existing bug or any other questions here pointing to a solution. So any help is appreciated.

OK. Actually this was an authentication error from Jira to our SSO infrastructure. :-( The exception was a little misleading in this case. However, my code seems correct.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
