  • Jenkins 1.580.1 jdk 5 build fails

    ,
  • Hey community, We used jenkins 1.532.2 and we encountered serious problems with Java5 Maven builds. When Jenkins calls the Maven plugin the build crashes with the following stacktrace: [my_mvn_project_build] $ /cip/opt/jdk1.5.0_22/bin/java -Xmx1024M -XX:PermSize=128M -XX:MaxPermSize=512M -cp /cip/home/jenkins-V1/maven-agent.jar:/cip/home/jenkins-V1/classworlds.jar hudson.maven.agent.Main /cip/opt/apache-maven-2.2.1 /cip/home/jenkins-V1/slave.jar /cip/home/jenkins-V1/maven-interceptor.jar 60645 /cip/home/jenkins-V1/maven2.1-interceptor.jar Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java:621) at java.security.SecureClassLoader.defineClass(SecureClassLoader.java:124) at java.net.URLClassLoader.defineClass(URLClassLoader.java:260) at java.net.URLClassLoader.access$100(URLClassLoader.java:56) at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:195) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:188) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:307) at org.codehaus.classworlds.RealmClassLoader.loadClassDirect(RealmClassLoader.java:195) at org.codehaus.classworlds.DefaultClassRealm.loadClass(DefaultClassRealm.java:255) at hudson.maven.agent.Main.main(Main.java:143) at hudson.maven.agent.Main.main(Main.java:68) ERROR: Failed to parse POMs java.net.SocketException: Connection reset at java.net.SocketInputStream.read(SocketInputStream.java:168) at java.io.FilterInputStream.read(FilterInputStream.java:116) at hudson.remoting.ProxyInputStream$Buffer.read(ProxyInputStream.java:110) at hudson.remoting.ProxyInputStream$Chunk.perform(ProxyInputStream.java:132) at hudson.remoting.ProxyInputStream$Chunk.perform(ProxyInputStream.java:119) at hudson.remoting.Request$2.run(Request.java:324) at hudson.remoting.InterceptingExecutorService$1.call(InterceptingExecutorService.java:68) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask$Sync.innerRun(FutureTask.java:303) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:138) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$Worker.runTask(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:886) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$Worker.run(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:908) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:662) at ......remote call to FRASCIPSLAVE-1(Native Method) at hudson.remoting.Channel.attachCallSiteStackTrace(Channel.java:1356) at hudson.remoting.Request.call(Request.java:171) at hudson.remoting.ProxyInputStream._read(ProxyInputStream.java:74) at hudson.remoting.ProxyInputStream.read(ProxyInputStream.java:80) at hudson.remoting.RemoteInputStream.read(RemoteInputStream.java:269) at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read1(BufferedInputStream.java:256) at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read(BufferedInputStream.java:317) at java.io.BufferedInputStream.fill(BufferedInputStream.java:218) at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read(BufferedInputStream.java:237) at hudson.remoting.ChannelBuilder.negotiate(ChannelBuilder.java:329) at hudson.remoting.ChannelBuilder.build(ChannelBuilder.java:280) at hudson.slaves.Channels.forProcess(Channels.java:114) at hudson.maven.AbstractMavenProcessFactory.newProcess(AbstractMavenProcessFactory.java:253) at hudson.maven.ProcessCache.get(ProcessCache.java:236) at hudson.maven.MavenModuleSetBuild$MavenModuleSetBuildExecution.doRun(MavenModuleSetBuild.java:749) at hudson.model.AbstractBuild$AbstractBuildExecution.run(AbstractBuild.java:533) at hudson.model.Run.execute(Run.java:1745) at hudson.maven.MavenModuleSetBuild.run(MavenModuleSetBuild.java:519) at hudson.model.ResourceController.execute(ResourceController.java:89) at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:240) Finished: FAILURE After that, we have upgrade jenkins from version 1.532.2 to 1.580.1 and we have ran the build of job, but we have the same problem... ! Could you please investigate this as it is crucial to us that the Java5 builds are still stable to build? Thanks in advance for your help
