RandomStrongPassword Java action breaks after upgrading to Mendix 8

0
Hi Forum,   When saving user accounts, I use the RandomStrongPassword Java action from the CommunityCommons. However, since I upgraded my project from Mendix 7 to Mendix 8, it throws the following error:   Error in execution of monitored action 'RegularClientAction' (execution id: 1602654812701-39, execution type: CLIENT) -------- java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.commons.lang3.RandomStringUtils.randomAlphanumeric(II)Ljava/lang/String;     at

persists. I have also already updated CommunityCommons to the last version (8.2), and deleted and readded the RandomStrongPassword action.     These are all the libs in my project that have “lang3” in them:   Any help would be much appreciated!   Thanks,   Ruben

I now see a 3.1 and a 3.7. So keep commons-lang3-3.7.jar and remove the older one.

I solved this issue by changing the StringUtils.java file in the CommunityCommons javasource folder. My version of org.apache.commons.lang3 has a randomAlphanumeric method that accepts only one integer. To solve this, I removed one of the integers provided to the method in the StringUtils.java file.

Next to that, I made a ticket for Mendix to possibly change this in their communitycommons module so that this issue does not appear again.

I have had this problem before, and found the solution was to downgrade to a slightly earlier version of Community Commons. You may also need to clean out the userlib to remove any Community Commons jar files first.
