Make plugin backwards compatible?

So here is the situation - I developed a JIRA plugin and unaware that JIRA versions change so fast, I built and tested the plugin on JIRA 6.3.4, and then realized that it doesnot work on our team JIRA instance which is running version 6.2.6.
I tested out this theory by installing 6.2.6 locally and it's not working.

Now I could upgrade the JIRA our team uses, but I figure that will be a lot of hassel.
Is there a way I can check which libraries are causing the issue ?

It turned out to be a problem with the JIRA project I was testing it out on.
Plugin works fine now

I just tried it , it eats up my jar, shows a progres bar .. and then nothing. It shows the start page again. Tried on multiple browsers , same result.

strange ...

i tested it with a self written plugin a few minutes ago. Another way could be to specify JIRA version 6.2.6 in your plugin descriptor and execute atlas-mvn clean; atlas-mvn eclipse:eclipse- You should see incompatible api usages in your ide

Are there no hints in your log files?

I was able to get the plugin working on a local instance by specifying jira 6.2.6 in the pom, but still won't work on the production instance.
There are some errors in the log. I will fix them and come back here :)
