java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: SubjectAlternativeName

Hi,

I try to update Openfire 3.7.1 to 3.8.1.

And I am getting the following error during the last setup step, when I confirm the admin email:

I use the same database, which I used for 3.7.1.

When I log in with my admin account, I get a warning, that the certificate is not valid.

When I try to update it, by clicking Server Settings => Server Certificates, I get the following warning:

“One or more certificates are missing. Click here to generate self-signed certificates or here to import a signed certificate and its private key.”

If I try to generate self-signed certificates, I get the same error as during the setup.

Please help.

Ok, I got it. It was because Openfire 3.8.1 obviously uses BouncyCastle 1.46.

However, we added BouncyCastle 1.45 jars to our JVM, which caused the crash.
