API incompatibility was encountered while executing org.sonarsource.scanner.maven:sonar-maven-plugin:3.7.0.1746:sonar

Hi Team,

Current we are using sonarqube 7.9 enterprise version, we have upgarded Java analyzer plugin to 6.3, few week back I have reported issue on [ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.sonarsource.scanner.maven:sonar-maven-plugin:3.7.0.1746:sonar (default-cli) on project phts-aggregator: Execution default-cli of goal org.sonarsource.scanner.maven:sonar-maven-plugin:3.7.0.1746:sonar failed: A required class was missing while executing org.sonarsource.scanner.maven:sonar-maven-plugin:3.7.0.1746:sonar: javax/servlet/jsp/jstl/core/ConditionalTagSupport

As per sonar support we have excluded the JSP files from scan and we are good for above, now we are getting below error for a different project . can you please help with us if you have any workaround ?

I tried to exclude JSP files from scan but did not help much

Hello,

First of all, just so you know the recently release Java 6.3.1 is supposed to fix the problem on JSP files, so you may try to include them again.

About your new problem, this seems to be a dependency problem with JSF. Similar problems have been reported outside of any SonarQube context. You may want to try the fixes suggested at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7807549/java-lang-classformaterror-absent-code-attribute-in-method-that-is-not-native-o for instance

Thank you Olivier, In my POM I do not use JSF dededency, Even I have tried to exclude the JSP file from sonar scan still I am seeing this issue. Can you please have a look if required I will share the log and pom file for further analysis .

Thanks
Sachidananda

Hello @sachidananda,

Yes please share POM and logs.

Please find the attached log and pom file plan-528876942-JOB1-16.log (1.3 MB)

Hello @sachidananda,
Just as a reminder, this is a community forum where you get free support in best effort. You should be more patient and chase less often.
I am just back from holidays and had a look at your POM. In this POM there several dependencies to some custom packages that are likely to contain JSF, the best evidence being that you exclude some javax libs afterwards (JSF faces being part of javax), and that is certainly the root cause. This is most probably not a SonarQube problem.
What I suggest you to do is to build your projects (without analyzing with SonarQube) and then search for presence of the embedded javax.faces package in built targets.
That should help you determine how to modify your POM to not include JSF
