      WAR installation of 2.3 on jakarta-tomcat-4.1.27 with MySQL on a remote server.


      I have tried importing bugzilla into 2.3 (since 2.4.1 being broken is a known bug).

      I have problems with the following:

      • most web browsers/proxies seem to timeout on a request that takes this long (an hour or more with a large bugzilla database). To get around this, I do a GET request on the bugzilla import using a tool that controls/ignores the timeout, and send the JSESSIONID cookie so it will log in.
      • I get the following exception, presumable because the session timeout is less than the length of time it takes.
        [10:09:56] java.lang.IllegalStateException: getAttribute: Session already invalidated
        at org.apache.catalina.session.StandardSession.getAttribute(StandardSession.java:954)

      I would suggest that the bugzilla -> XML process should be a separate Java application, and this XML should then be imported via the regular JIRA mechanism.

      I rate this as major as it could potentially push our company's decision to adopt JIRA over our existing bugzilla installation into the negative. We are currently evaluating it.
