The following error is logged in Fisheye logs:

WARN - Could not load svn-javahl
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/tigris/subversion/javahl/SVNClientInterface
   at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method)
   at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(


The JavaHL-SVNClientInterface JAR dependency is missing.


To fix the issue, add the missing dependency to Fisheye's classpath:

  1. Please download the standalone version of SVNKit.
  2. Unzip the downloaded SVNKit and copy all the .jar files into FISHEYE_INST/lib directory.

Ensure that you have downloaded the correct version of SVNKit JAR
