Version error while trying to start module

OpenMRS Version: master

Question: I’m trying to install my (as of yet unchanged) REST module into OpenMRS as a prelude to working on tickets on the REST API. I’ve built the code, as per the step-by-step instructions, and started it in jetty. Installing the REST module fails though with this error message:

Error while trying to start module Module requires version matching 1.8.1. Current code version is ${parsedVersion.majorVersion}.${parsedVersion.minorVersion}.${parsedVersion.incrementalVersion}-${revisionNumber}

This suprises me, because I’ve gotten this to run at least once. I’ve torn down my workspace and rebuilt it several time since then, but I haven’t changed the source code.

What am I doing wrong?


This also happens to me once in a while. Just redo an mvn clean install on the core platform, to fix it.


As Daniel said, doing a mvn clean install for the module and use the newly generated .omod file should fix it.

Thank you both. This resolved the issue. Someone else has already run into it too, and I was able to help him immediately.
