Comment 8 Jean-frederic Clere 2015-11-23 10:39:35 UTC
I think you need to upgrade ecj to eclipse-ecj-4.4.jar or higher to fix the problem.

Comment 11 Coty Sutherland 2015-12-01 12:50:48 UTC
To resolve this bug would require an update of the ECJ library to at least version 4.4. Given that we don't have any users experiencing this issue at the moment and that the issue can be worked around by moving the bad code (which uses Maps) from the JSP into a Servlet, or helper class, I am closing this out.

Comment 12 Coty Sutherland 2015-12-01 12:52:21 UTC
Also note that another alternative would be to use Java 7.

This bug is really a no-op for tomcat; once the dependent bug (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1336481) is fixed, then we can close this one as closed/currentrelease.

Comment 21 Coty Sutherland 2017-03-21 12:09:40 UTC
The ECJ update (bug 1336481) has been released.
