Minifi Toolkit

New Contributor


I'm brand new to Apache NiFi and MiniFi.  I'm following along a Getting Started with MiniFi ( and I'm trying to convert the template xml to yml per the instructions.  I am in the minifi-toolkit directory.  I had to add the jaxb-api-2.4.0-b180830.0359 which was not included in the lib directory.  So, I ran the transform command and got the following error:

Error reading template. (javax.xml.bind.JAXBException: Implementation of JAXB-API has not been found on module path or classpath.
- with linked exception:
[java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.sun.xml.internal.bind.v2.ContextFactory])

I can't find any trouble shooting tips to resolve this error.  Can anyone please help me resolve this?


@H20 What version of NiFi was the template created in and what version of the toolkit is being used to do the transform?
