Using JDK 11 with the Atlassian SDK is not yet supported - see Unable to locate Jira server for this macro. It may be due to Application Link configuration.


Atlassian SDK <= 8.2 ( as of this article, see bug report for eventual version supporting JDK 11 )



Attempting to compile with the Atlassian SDK and JDK 11 results in the following:

$ rm -rf target && atlas-package 

[INFO] Project POM found

 package -gs 

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
	at java.base/<init>(
	at java.base/<init>(
	at org.twdata.maven.trap.Dispatcher.getInterceptorsResourceBufferedReader(
	at org.twdata.maven.trap.Dispatcher.getMavenInterceptors(
	at org.twdata.maven.trap.Dispatcher.main(
	at org.twdata.maven.trap.App.main(


Continue using JDK 8 to compile. The resulting app should work in JDK 11 without issue
