Subject [jira] Commented: (SUREFIRE-500) puzzling NoClassDefFoundError instead of meaningfull stacktrace
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2009 12:23:12 GMT


Gabriele Columbro commented on SUREFIRE-500:

I'm also experiencing this issue with maven 2.0.9, with a weird NoClassDefFoundError on the
base Spring test class AbstractDependencyInjectionSpringContextTests, which is instead declared
with 'test' scope in the pom.

Luckily a 'mvn clean' saved the day :)

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: classloading
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.2
>         Environment: maven 2.0.9 , linux/ubuntu, jdk-sun-1.5.0_13
>            Reporter: Johan Romme
> We are using maven-2.0.9 for some project using spring/hibernate.
> When I made an incorrect change to the spring configuration (or actually I removed a
hbm.xml file that was still referenced in the spring config), maven/surefire failed with an
NoClassDefFoundError on one of our abstract test classes (where the spring config was loaded).
Running in debug mode (-X) or increasing log4j levels did not reveal more info as to the cause
of the problem. 
> After some time I switched back to maven-2.0.7,  maven/surefire also failed but with
a meaningfull stacktrace that pointed immediately to the cause of the problem. 
> So I fixed the problem, switched again to maven-2.0.9, with a succesfull build as result.
