java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • You're unable to run Jenkins on the raspberry pi with the new Java JDK 8 for ARM (http://jdk8.java.net/fxarmpreview/). Although the JDK is still in 'early access' it shows that Jenkins is still using non-standard Java classes such as sun.security.util.DerValue. Jenkins was installed by adding the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/debian binary/ - sudo apt-get update - sudo apt-get install jenkins In /var/log/jenkins/jenkins.log appears the following stacktrace: Running from: /usr/share/jenkins/jenkins.war 25 Feb 2013 18:47:34 winstone.Logger logInternal INFO: Beginning extraction from war file 25
