    • Environment:
      Windows 7 SP1, 64-bit (Jenkins as Windows Service)

      Description

      After updating from Jenkins 2.53 to Jenkins 2.54 the Windows service appears to start successfully but the error log reports an InvocationTargetException caused by an UnsupportedClassVersionError: jenkins/util/SystemProperties : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

      Navigating to the Jenkins homepage gives an error code 503.

      Reverting to Jenkins 2.53 fixes the issue.

      The jenkins.err file is attached, but the stack trace is as follows:

      WARNING: Failed startup of context w.@68be28{/,file:/C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Jenkins/war/,STARTING}{C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins\war}

            Please update the control file in the 2.54 deb package since it currently does not reflect the Java 1.8 dependency:

            Depends: daemon, adduser, procps, psmisc, net-tools, default-jre-headless (>= 2:1.7) | java7-runtime-headless

            This is a problem with RHEL/CentOS as well using the 'official' RPM repo:

            Not sure if java was intentionally not present in the dependency list for the RPM (whereas it is apparently listed for the deb packages), but its not there for the rpm ones.  Just in case someone stumbles upon this from a google search.

            Robert Stevens Probably as designed: https://github.com/jenkinsci/packaging/pull/96 , CC Sam Van Oort. Anyway, it should be created as a separate issue

            Robert Stevens Java is not on the dependency list for the RPM builds, because the Oracle JDK/JRE does not register as providing the "java" dependency.  This means adding the dependency would forcibly install the OpenJDK version, which can cause consequences for users.
