"No such field" Exception when trying to login using Java API

Hello, I have a server running Bonita BPM. So far the platform can be accessed using a browser and with the REST API, however, trying to login using the Java API results in some strange exceptions being thrown. Has anyone had this problem before? Did I maybe forget to set something in a config file somewhere or so?

Bonita BPM vers: 6.3.1 OS: Windows 8.1 Deployed with: JBoss-5.0 Java Version: 1.6

I basically just took this project: https://github.com/bonitasoft/bonita-examples/tree/1.0.x and then: - performed a successful mvn clean install - imported it into eclipse - updated bonita-client.properties with the right http address - and then created a new main class with nothing but the following code:

LoginAPI loginAPI = TenantAPIAccessor.getLoginAPI();
APISession apiSession = loginAPI.login("TestUser", "welcome");  // Error occurs here
ProcessAPI processAPI = TenantAPIAccessor.getProcessAPI(apiSession);

Stacktrace:

This one is the BEST answer!

Hookay, seems like the cause of the error was sitting ~40cm in front of my monitor...

To get it working I did the following: - Edit the POM file to match Bonita version 6.3.1 (The example was still on 6.2.2) - Redo the Maven clean install - Update the bonita-client.properties with the right http address (again)

I figured out what was wrong by going through the documentation step by step and checking to see if everything matches up: http://documentation.bonitasoft.com/create-your-first-project-engine-api...

..."The bonita home used must have the same version as the Bonita BPM Engine" is what tipped me off.
