Better Excel Plugin for JIRA 2.4.1 released: important bugfix: Excel rendering randomly fails with classloading exceptions

Midori is proud to announce that the Better Excel Plugin for JIRA 2.4.1 is generally available at Atlassian Marketplace

New in this release


This version fixes the problem of the Excel rendering randomly failing with mysterious classloading related exceptions: "NoClassDefFoundError: ZipPackagePropertiesMarshaller" and "ExceptionInInitializerError" (caused by "ClassCastException: PackagePropertiesMarshaller.").

Root cause: when using the Better Excel Plugin in an automation context, Automation Lite uses its own classloader to eagerly load and initialize an XML related class.

Fix: although the problem is not in the Better Excel Plugin side, we managed to develop a fix for this.
