I have been facing strange runtime issues with the Jackson core libraries. The application randomly reports the below issue.
The Jackson core version used in the dependencies is 2.9.5 however, I have noticed during the build process that the JIB plugin probably bringing in its own Jackson core version 2.13.1 from its transitive dependencies.
I attempted several changes to get around the issue by upgrading the version of jackson dependencies to 2.12.7 however, the runtime issue in my application kept returning. I have now implemented the following changes but still not sure if it has addressed the issue for good.
- Clearing the Gradle cache every time the build runs on the GitLab runner (this did not make any difference as the run time issue was still there)
- Rolled back Jackson dependencies to version 2.9.5.
I have run the dependency check several times to confirm if any transitive dependencies are bringing their own Jackson Core versions and I can’t see any. Any help would be much appreciated.
