Recently we switched from Java 7 to Java 8 and we were using spring 3.1.1. And once we started using the java 8 features in spring beans, we started to encounter the following stacktrace.

Solution

And the solution to this issue is to upgrade to spring 4.x or don’t use java 8 features in spring beans. And if you have decided to upgrade you may also want to look at upgrading from spring 3.1 to 4.3.
