Upgrade V14.7.3 to V14.7.5

Hello Team,

I tried upgrading Bloomreach v14.7.3 to v14.7.5 in local and facing some issues.

  1. when I tried accessing channel in the experience manager it shows blank page.
    Below request url is giving 404 in the network tab.
    http://localhost:8081/cms/_rp/cafebabe-cafe-babe-cafe-babecafebabe./channels/myproject

Note: I am able to access site, console applications. Issue is with only channel loading.

Could you please suggest ?
Please let me know if any additional information required.

Thanks,

Hmm strange, a NoClassDefFoundError on com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.AnnotationIntrospector$XmlExtensions

You seem to have a dependency issue. In a default 14.7.5 project that class is present in
jackson-module-jaxb-annotations-2.13.1.jar. Maybe you don’t have it, or with a lower version.

HTH
Jeroen

I tried adding the dependency in cms/pom.xml. Got same error.

Error:

I think the class in question is actually found in jackson-databind-2.13.1.jar.

You shouldn’t need to add this to the cms pom. It will be included in the cms.war. Check in there if you have multiple versions of this jar. You can also run:

mvn dependency:tree -Dincludes=:jackson-databind::

Looking the jar should be easier.

If this is happening on a server but not locally inspect the artifacts on the server. Also see if you have any jars in the shared or common libs that may conflict. I don’t expect this jar there, so if it is delete it.

Adding below dependency in cms/pom.xml with 2.10.5 version has resolved the issue.
If I use 2.13.1 version, issue still exists. please let me know what could be the reason ?

"
com.fasterxml.jackson.module
jackson-module-jaxb-annotations
2.10.5
"

After running the command … jackons-databind jar is available in site and essentials war . It is available in CMS as well because I have added the above dependency manually.

Please let me know if any information required.

Thanks,
Yeshwanth.

You can have the libary in multiple wars because each war has it’s own classloader. If you have multiple versions of the same jar that is a problem. But if you depend on different versions compile time that is also a problem. When I run the mvn dependency:tree command on a fresh project with recommended enterprise features I get the following output:

Looking at the deployed artifacts:

$ find target/tomcat9x/webapps/ -name jackson-databind*
target/tomcat9x/webapps/cms/WEB-INF/lib/jackson-databind-2.13.1.jar
target/tomcat9x/webapps/essentials/WEB-INF/lib/jackson-databind-2.13.1.jar

If adding a dependency to version 2.10.5 works, the implication seems to be that compile time that version is being used, while runtime the later version is deployed (before you overrrode the dependency).

My bad. Initially we thought, we don’t have jackosn-databind dependency in our project. But it is available in our cms/pom.xml

We have removed the new dependency which we added and updated jackson-databind dependency version to 2.13.1 and it worked.

jackson-databind dependency version across all the war files are matching now.
Thank you so much for your inputs.

Yeshwanth.
