Rackspace cloud file feature was implemented with out project. In the deployment, it gave the no such method. error as following.
java.util.ServiceConfigurationError: org.jclouds.providers.ProviderMetadata: Provider org.jclouds.rackspace.cloudfiles.uk.CloudFilesUKProviderMetadata could not be instantiated: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.google.common.base.Objects.firstNonNull(Ljava/lang/Object;Ljava/lang/Object;)Ljava/lang/Object; at java.util.ServiceLoader.fail(ServiceLoader.java:207) at java.util.ServiceLoader.access$100(ServiceLoader.java:164) at java.util.ServiceLoader$LazyIterator.next(ServiceLoader.java:353)
Then I went through all the required libraries and configuration but could not find any missing items. Then I searched on Internet but given suggestion are not helpful. Finally, the decision was to check every libraries in deployment environment which causes to conflicted.
After struggling with all libraries on entire project in many hours, two libraries were found affecting to be conflicted. We removed those jar files since they are no longer required for deployment. Then cloud file feature works successfully.
Then we found out how these libraries affected to be conflicted. These libraries has used class files which were available in google-collect.jar. Later it was renamed with guava and it is developed. Rackspace cloud files uses guava-17.0.jar. It works properly with Rackspace cloud files integration.
