I try to have Grouper 2.2.2 run on a VM with Jessie, Openjdk7 and Tomcat 8,
and I am facing an odd problem. After the installation the GrouperShell runs
without any problem, but as soon as I copy the war-file into the tomcat
webapps folder I get a severe error saying


This error occurs whenever Tomcat tries an auto deploy of the war file.

After many many hours of searching I found out the following:

GrouperSourceAdapter extends BaseSourceAdapter; the above named method
"initParams()" is a method which is declared in, right?

Not necessaril: It is declared in a newer version of,
which is built within grouper.jar. But: is also used in
subject.jar, which comes along with Grouper 2.2.2, but this time in the old
version *without* the method "initParams()".

Having no other explanation for my problem I think that Tomcat 8 reads for any
reason first the old version of BaseSourceAdapter in subject.jar, then is read
GrouperSourceAdapter in grouper.jar - oops, no initParams-Method found, so an
error is thrown.

Can you confirm this behaviour? If no: Do you have an idea what else could
cause this problem? If yes: Could you provide another subject.jar with an
updated BaseSourceAdapter?

Thank you,
