Java – Jersey stopped working with InjectionManagerFactory not found

I am receiving below error while running my Jersey API in Tomcat 8.5.11 which is causing my API to stop:

HTTP Status 500 – Servlet.init() for servlet Jersey REST Service threw
exception

type Exception report

message Servlet.init() for servlet Jersey REST Service threw exception

description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it
from fulfilling this request.

The application is build with the following dependencies with gradle:

dependencies {
    compile (
        // REST
        "org.glassfish.jersey.containers:jersey-container-servlet:2.+",
        "javax.servlet:javax.servlet-api:4.+",
        // REST Token
        "org.bitbucket.b_c:jose4j:0.+",
        // MongoDB
        "org.hibernate.ogm:hibernate-ogm-bom:5.+",
        "org.hibernate.ogm:hibernate-ogm-infinispan:5.+",
        "org.hibernate.javax.persistence:hibernate-jpa-2.1-api:1.+",
        "org.jboss.spec.javax.transaction:jboss-transaction-api_1.2_spec:1.+",
        "org.jboss.narayana.jta:narayana-jta:5.+",
        "org.jboss:jboss-transaction-spi:7.+",
        "log4j:log4j:1.+",
        "org.hibernate.ogm:hibernate-ogm-mongodb:5.+",
        "org.bouncycastle:bcprov-jdk15on:1.+"
    ) }

This downloads jersey-common-2.26-b04.jar which contains the missing class under /org/glassfish/jersey/internal/inject/InjectionManagerFactory. The jar file is deployed into the Tomcat folder under WEB-INF/lib

What can be wrong here? The gradle script worked the last few month with the same Tomcat version.

Best Solution

Add this dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.glassfish.jersey.inject</groupId>
    <artifactId>jersey-hk2</artifactId>
    <version>2.28</version>
</dependency>

cf. https://stackoverflow.com/a/44536542/1070215

Make sure not to mix your Jersey dependency versions. This answer says version "2.28", but use whatever version your other Jersey dependency versions are.
