Upgrading JIRA with the installer throws NullPointerException


アトラシアン コミュニティをご利用ください。



Attempting to upgrade JIRA using the installer causes NullPointerException, the follow screen is shown instead of the login screen:

Also, the following appears in the atlassian-jira.log:

2013-03-04 16:45:07,255 localhost-startStop-1 WARN      [core.entity.transaction.JNDIFactory] [ConnectionFactory.getConnection] Failed to find DataSource named java:comp/env/jdbc/JiraDS in JNDI server with name default. Trying normal database.

The dbconfig.xml file, which is located into JIRA Home Directory, contains a JNDI location:



The database resource was located within the server.xml file, which is not copied over during the upgrade.  


There are two possible workarounds to this issue:

Reconfigure the dbconfig.xml file and stop using JNDI Location:

  1. Jira をシャットダウンします。
  2. Navigate to JIRA Home Directory
  3. Delete or move the current dbconfig.xml file to another folder
  4. Navigate to $JIRA_install_dir/bin and execute JIRA configuration tool
  5. Configure your database connection again
  6. Jira を再起動します。

Or re-add the JNDI Location:

  1. Jira をシャットダウンします。
  2. Check the server.xml file, which is located in $JIRA_install_dir/conf, from a backup prior to the upgrade attempt

  3. Copy the JNDI Location that includes the database connection parameters, as in this example:

    <Resource auth="Container" driverClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" maxActive="20" name="jdbc/JiraDS" password="jira" type="javax.sql.DataSource" url="jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/jira0?useUnicode=true&amp;characterEncoding=UTF8" username="jira" validationQuery="select 1"/>

    Do not copy the server.xml file into your new installation. Copy just the JNDI resource definition.

  4. Paste the JNDI Location in the same location (inside the <Context/> node) in the server.xml file after the upgrade

  5. Jira を再起動します。
