Issue

The errors "Unresolved compilation problems", "cannot be resolved to a type", or "Compilation errors" are seen when viewing AEM pages and in the error.log.

For example:

Cause

Here are a few possible causes:

  1. Missing OSGi bundles
  2. Stopped OSGi bundles
  3. Corrupt compiled jsp class files

Resolution

To fix the issue, follow the steps below:

A. Check if bundles are stopped

  1. Go to http://aem-host:port/system/console/bundles and log in as admin.

  2. Sort by bundle Status.

  3. See if there are any bundles in Stopped or Resolved state which shouldn't be.

  4. Start them if they are stopped.  If you don't see any stopped bundles or the ones that are supposed to be stopped, then continue to the next step.  Otherwise test and validate if the problem is solved.

B. Check that the classes are exported to the OSGi Class Loader

  1. Go to http://aem-host:port/system/console/depfinder.

  2. In the text field, enter the fully qualified java class name from the error. For example, in the error above, it is "com.geometrixx.components.page.basepage.BasePage"

  3. Click Find.

  4. If an OSGi bundle shows up as a result, then the class is being exported.  Make sure that the bundle is Active. If it isn't, then start the bundle and test.  Otherwise move on to the next step.

C. Clear the compiled JSP cache

Since the java class is exported and is available to the jsp that threw the error, then we can only suspect that the compiled jsp class files are corrupted.

  1. Go to http://aem-host:port/system/console/slingjsp.

  2. Click Recompile all JSPs.

  3. Test to see if the issue is resolved.  If not, then continue to the next step.

  4. Log in to the server's file system.

  5. Go to the AEM installation folder subdirectory crx-quickstart/launchpad/felix

  6. Search under that folder for _jsp.java files.  On Linux, you can run the command below from the AEM installation folder.

    find ./crx-quickstart/launchpad/felix -type d -name classes

    You would get a result similar to this:

    ./crx-quickstart/launchpad/felix/bundle218/data/classes
  7. In the result you can see that bundle218 is the folder for the org.apache.sling.scripting.jsp bundle, in your case the folder has a different number than 218.

  8. Delete the subdirectories under data/classes directory.  For example:

    rm -rf ./crx-quickstart/launchpad/felix/bundle218/data/classes/*
  9. Open your browser to http://aem-host:port/system/console/bundles and restart the bundles org.apache.sling.scripting.jsp and org.apache.sling.commons.fsclassloader​

  10. Now test again and validate to see if the problem is resolved.

If the problem is still not resolved after all the above steps, then contact AEM Customer Care.
