Logstash java link error


(B) #1

I encounter a problem starting logstash.

Uncompressing 6.X.tar.gz (i.e not only the last 6.2.4 version of logstash) I have the following error message:

[ERROR] 2018-05-29 15:45:29.898 [main] Logstash - java.lang.IllegalStateException: org.jruby.exceptions.RaiseException: (NameError) cannot link Java class org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpRequestBase, probable missing dependency: org/apache/http/HttpRequest

Is there someone to explain this error ?
For instance, I tryed to put the httpclient-4.0.2 or httpclient-4.5.2 in the logstash-core/lib/jars directory without any result...

Thanks


(B) #2

Found a workaround:

cp ~/.m2/repository/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpcore/4.4.8/httpcore-4.4.8.jar ~/elastic-stack/logstash-6.2.4/logstash-core/lib/jars/

and

cp ~/.m2/repository/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpclient/4.5.3/httpclient-4.5.3.jar ~/elastic-stack/logstash-6.2.4/logstash-core/lib/jars/

But it is stange to need that...
Is tar.gz build differently from linux packages on that point ?

Not sufficient further usage of logstash is missing dependencies ...

error extract:
last error: cannot load Java class org.apache.http.client.utils.SSLConnectionSocketFactory

I think it is a packaging bug ...

Which version of Java are you using? Which operating system?


(B) #5

jdk:

openjdk version "1.8.0_171"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_171-8u171-b11-0ubuntu0.16.04.1-b11)

Please note the error is more detailed on 6.0.0:

Thanks for your help :wink:

Found the problem with a real chance doing really something else than palying with logstash !

When I was building a maven project, I found a very strange error message saying:

[ERROR] error reading /home/user/.m2/repository/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpclient/4.5.2/httpclient-4.5.2.jar; error in opening zip file

So I tryed to rm the bad jar file and then thought to launch logstash again to see what would happen ...

And logstash worked ???

Then I grepped the logstash dir to find that some scripts refering to .m2 ???

vendor/bundle/jruby/2.3.0/gems/jar-dependencies-0.3.11/lib/jars/maven_settings.rb: settings = File.join( Jars.user_home, '.m2', 'settings.xml' )

Logsatsh seems to use .m2 in its path and then override the httpclient jar shipped with logstash manticore-0.6.1-java/lib...

I think this discovery is very puzzling ...
Is it safe to do that ?
