Maven build error: “Caused by: java.io.IOException: Incompatible version 1007”

I was encountering this error in Jenkins when it tried to build a project I was working on:


Caused by: java.io.IOException: Incompatible version 1007.
at org.jacoco.core.data.ExecutionDataReader.readHeader(ExecutionDataReader.java:127)
at org.jacoco.core.data.ExecutionDataReader.readBlock(ExecutionDataReader.java:107)
at org.jacoco.core.data.ExecutionDataReader.read(ExecutionDataReader.java:87)
at org.sonar.plugins.jacoco.AbstractAnalyzer.readExecutionData(AbstractAnalyzer.java:134)
at org.sonar.plugins.jacoco.AbstractAnalyzer.analyse(AbstractAnalyzer.java:107)

The problem was due to a breakage/bug in the jacoco-maven-plugin. To fix, simply add a version in your pom.xml, like so:


<plugin>
    <groupId>org.jacoco</groupId>
    <artifactId>jacoco-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>0.7.4.201502262128</version>
    <executions>
        <execution>
            <goals>
                <goal>prepare-agent</goal>
            </goals>
        </execution>
    </executions>
</plugin>

That’s it!
