I tryed to start jenkins but got the error "org.apache.commons.jelly.JellyTagException: jar:file:/var/run/jenkins/war/WEB-INF/lib/jenkins-core-1.413.jar!/lib/layout/layout.jelly:130:53: java.lang.StackOverflowError"


You can try downgrading jenkins so it can start and then going into plugins and installing updates, especially for maven.

  • Solved it by removing plugins. And then reinstalling them... – Fernando André Jun 10 '11 at 21:02

I had the same error earlier today after a migration from Hudson 1.339 or something like that to Jenkins 1.413

In fact, the problem is caused by incompatibility of plugins. I deleted the /var/lib/hudson folder which contained my workspace and thus all the projets, plugins settings.

After that, I reinstalled Jenkins and it worked perfectly. Hope that helps! I've lost a couple of hours with that...
