ClassNotFoundException: com.sonarsource.dbd.ir.IrGeneratorUtils$MissingFeatureException

Hello,

In our company we operate an on-premise SonarQube instance (Version 9.9.1).

The Sonar analyses are executed in a Java project using the official Sonar Gradle plugin.
The plugin in use is org.sonarsource.scanner.gradle:sonarqube-gradle-plugin:4.3.1.3277.

Analyses executed with Gradle on the local Windows machine work flawlessly with it.
However, the issue arises with Sonar analyses executed within a CI pipeline in GitLab under Linux.

In this case, the plugin encounters the following error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':sonar'.
> Unable to load components interface org.sonar.api.batch.sensor.Sensor

* Try:
> Run with --debug option to get more log output.
> Run with --scan to get full insights.

* Exception is:
org.gradle.api.tasks.TaskExecutionException: Execution failed for task ':sonar'.

Gradle Version in use is 7.6.2

Does anyone have an idea what could be causing this issue?

Hi @bigpuritz !

Sorry for the late reply.
I’m not able to replicate the problem you’re encountering in your CI. In fact, this shouldn’t happen because MissingFeatureException class should always be present in SonarQube.

Analyses executed with Gradle on the local Windows machine work flawlessly with it.
However, the issue arises with Sonar analyses executed within a CI pipeline in GitLab under Linux.

If not already done, could you please try to clear the cache in GitLab CI pipeline?

Otherwise, I think it would be useful to verify the checksum of a specific plugin called “sonar-dbd-python-frontend-plugin-1.10.0.3046.jar” that should live under lib/extensions folder of your SonarQube instance.

This is to make sure the plugin is not corrupted and that it does contain MissingFeatureException class.

Could you please compare it with your version?
