When clicking on the View File History an error appears stating that a java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError was encountered.

The following appears in the atlassian-fisheye.log:

2014-06-19 07:19:49,550 ERROR [qtp234367668-6228140 ] fisheye TotalityFilter-logExceptionDetails - Exception "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/jsp/tag/web/cru/filehist/otherRevLink_tag" (javax.servlet.ServletException) while processing "/crucible/WEB-INF/jsp/file/fileHistoryContentsResp.jsp" (Referer:"")
javax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/jsp/tag/web/cru/filehist/otherRevLink_tag
	at org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.doHandlePageException(


This problem is caused by an inconsistency in the OSGI plugin cache.


  1. Stop Fisheye.
  2. Delete (or move for backup purposes) the entire folder: $FISHEYE_INST/var/osgi-cache (e.g. /fisheye/var/osgi-cache)
  3. Start Fisheye.
