Atlassian Confluence SDK Problem starting App 404

when starting a Confluence plugin I always get the following error:

I have tried several plugins and in Windows, Mac and Ubuntu. Unfortunately I always get this error when starting the current and also an older SDK. I have tried Oracle and OpenJdk, both version 8. The result is a 404 page when calling http://127.0.0.1:1990/confluence

The Tomcat log does not contain any errors…

Do you have the same problem, or do you know a solution?

Answer

For all who also have this problem – the solution is to use a Java 8 version older than u261 or a Confluence version bigger than 7.0.0
