Client-Side Extension: Cannot enable Bitbucket Plugin


I’m unable to enable Bitbucket Plugin on my localhost dev. machine.

I follow this guide of Client-Side Extension: Getting Started - Client-side Extensions

When I go to manage apps → Bitbucket Plugin → Enable, in logs I receive following error:

c.a.plugin.osgi.factory.OsgiPlugin Detected an error (BundleException) enabling the plugin ‘com.atlassian.myapp.bitbucket-plugin-template’ :

Hi @TamirK,

Looking at that error it looks like there is a Java version (the plugin is expecting Java 9 or there is a dependency that is) and/or dependency discrepancy with your plugin.

Please verify the right version of Java is being used to compile/build your plugin and there is no issue with any dependency that your plugin is using with regard to the Java version.

Hi @ChristopherKochovski pherKochovski,

Thank you for your response.
In the documnetation, it is written that I need to use Java JDK 1.8
I have it on my pc. This is the java version I use:

C:\Users\1000259845>java -version
java version “1.8.0_341”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_341-b10)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 25.341-b10, mixed mode)

C:\Work\bitbucket-client-side-extensions-template>echo %java_home%
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_341

Can you suggest?

Thanks! Tamir


I installed the latest java JDK 1.9 and same issue occurs. Please suggest.

C:\Users>java -version
java version “9.0.4”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 9.0.4+11)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 9.0.4+11, mixed mode)

C:\Users>echo %java_home%
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-9.0.4

Thanks! Tamir

The Java 8 version looks fine. Please do not use Java 9 as it is unsupported; see the Bitbucket supported platforms page for more details here

Are you aware of any dependency that your plugin is using that is/was built with Java 9? Or is there a specific version that you are importing that requires Java 9 potentially? Other community members had the same issue regarding dependencies, see here.

Hi @ChristopherKochovski,

I’m using java 1.8 and run the template provided by Atlassian:
I don’t make any changes. Just want that this template will work.

Also, I read the link which you provided. Which files should I update?

Thanks! Tamir
