A fresh geoserver install + netcdf installation of 2.15-M0 in Debian Linux fails to start while the same config in 2.14.x works.
$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_191"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-b12)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.191-b12, mixed mode)
install geoserver 2.15-M0
install netcdf extension
Geoserver fails to start giving following messages:
Again, not a 1-1 test, just what I can do real quick, but http://cloudsdi.geo-solutions.it/geoserver/index.html is deployed 3 times a day off the dev branch nightly packages and includes the NetCDF plugin. Linux server, no startup issues there.
Looks like in your deploy the "jna" jars are missing?
Ah, I think I know what's going on. On that server we have the netcdf-out plugged in as well, that includes the jna jar, but the netcdf reader plugin does not. I'll update the ticket title accordingly.
Confirmed here: packaging issue.
If I download current nightly and only install the netcdf (input) extension, GS will not start because of lack of jna.jar
Adding the jna-4.2.2.jar from the netcdf-output extension (or the full extension) fixes this.
I'm going to include that jar on netcdf extension too since people may want to install the "input" extension only without the netcdf-out part.
