Script Runner does not seem to find external .jar properties Edited


I'm using Jira v6.3.13 (WAR, with Apache Tomcat 7 and Java 8) and Script Runner v3.1.4. I wanted to use Jollyday (v0.5.7) with some scripted fields, and downloaded its .jar into Jira's WEB-INF/lib folder. After restarting, it seems to load the jar's classes just fine, but the script is having some trouble finding the jar's internal .properties. When this is executed inside the Script Console:

import de.jollyday.Holiday;
import de.jollyday.HolidayCalendar;
import de.jollyday.HolidayManager;

HolidayManager m = HolidayManager.getInstance(HolidayCalendar.BRAZIL);

Set<Holiday> holidays = m.getHolidays(2019, "br");
return holidays

It returns:

groovy.lang.GroovyRuntimeException: null at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.InvokerHelper.formatList( at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.InvokerHelper.toListString( at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.InvokerHelper.toListString( at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.InvokerHelper.toListString( at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.InvokerHelper.toString( at org.codehaus.groovy.runtime.DefaultGroovyMethods.toString( at at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke( at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke( at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke( at com.sun.jersey.spi.container.JavaMethodInvokerFactory$1.invoke(

It's worth noting that descriptions.holiday_descriptions is a .properties file located inside the .jar (inside the descriptions folder). The locale does not seem to be the problem, since the problem persists if the locale is en_US. I tried adding the properties files inside the WEB-INF/classes as well, to no avail.

Is there some incompatibility with this jar, or with Script Runner trying to import properties into the console? Is there a different approach that could be tried?
