java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: scala/Serializable

Hello,

I recently upgraded our scala version from 2.12.8 to 2.13.1 and now we can’t seem to run the code as the run is aborted due to this error message.

An exception or error caused a run to abort: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: scala/Serializable java.lang.BootstrapMethodError: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: scala/Serializable

Has anyone encountered this after your upgrade? Is it worthwhile to upgrade to 2.13.1?

Thanks

This sounds like a version mismatch, trying to run with libraries that were compiled against 2.12

Are you using sbt? If so, what does your build.sbt look like?

Hey Martin,

Thanks for getting back so quickly, after spending the day trying to figure out what’s going on, you right it is version mismatch on a package that we have in our build.sbt

It turns out that the scala-retry we’re using has not published a 2.13 compatible version.

We’re going to put a hold on the upgrade until that gets resolved. The author said that it will be published in a couple of days.

Cheers!

Hi, I meet the same problem when update form 2.12.13 to 2.13.6? wondering is this fixed.

Hi.

You need to upgrade all your dependencies to versions that are binary compatible with your Scala version, 2.13 in this case.

How do you define your dependencies? If you use sbt, how does your build.sbt look like?

Thank you so much Cbley, I checked all the libs then found one outdated, follow your suggestion. After I update it the error gone.

I can confirm the fix is validation dependencies. For me I upgraded my SpringBoot version which changed my spring-kafka-test version which intern included kafka 2.13.x which finally included scala libs.

I used mvn dependency:tree on my project’s build file and searched for ‘2.12’ to find where the old dependency was coming from. Example dependency tree (unrelated dependencies removed). Notice org.apache.kafka:kafka_2.11:jar:0.10.0.0 included as part of my.company.riptide.api:ness-logger:jar:1.0.0 but org.springframework.kafka:spring-kafka-test:jar:2.7.9 includes a newer version org.apache.kafka:kafka_2.13:jar:2.7.2

My solution was to exclude kafaka_2.11 from my ness-logger dependency like this:

<dependency>
  <groupId>my.company.riptide.api</groupId>
  <artifactId>ness-logger</artifactId>
  <version>1.0.0</version>
  <exclusions>
    <exclusion>
      <groupId>org.apache.kafka</groupId>
      <artifactId>kafka_2.11</artifactId>
    </exclusion>
  </exclusions>
</dependency>

Truncated output of mvn dependency:tree:
