    Default Kettle/PDI/Spoon 3.0 Fatal Error solution

    Solution: Use Java 5 (I used jre1.5.0_12) and not less than 1.5

    Issue: I encountered the following error when trying to start Spoon/PDI 3.0 (M2 specifically) on a clean Linux box and couldn't find anything in the forums about Ljava.lang.Class and the LogWriter posts didn't seem to apply.

    Yes, Sven, I did need a big sign. I hope this helps others who are signage-challenged like myself.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem now on a new Centos 5.3 box with jre-1.6.0_16-fcs.x86_64 installed trying to work with PDI 3.2.0 Stable.

    Default

    Sorry, my bad!

    The admin forgot to point PATH to the new Java version. Now it works.

    Sometimes one should just check which Java version is actually used when executing. ;-)
