How can I install the Bamboo Spec api Java classes?

I am trying to compile and publish a Bamboo Spec. I exported an existing build plan as a JavaSpec, and copied it to a file.

I run: javac -verbose

I get error messages like the following:

" error: package com.atlassian.bamboo.specs.api does not exist"

It appears that it isn't finding the Bamboo Spec java libraries. Where can I download these libraries?

I would suggest you to generate proper Bamboo Specs project following instructions at

And then paste content of Java file from browser to generated by archetype

As Alexey mentioned, just use the Maven archetype to create a project template as described in the documentation.

Note: You must create Bamboo Specs in the bamboo-specs directory, under the repository root. Also, replace 6.x.x with the corresponding version of your Bamboo.

mvn archetype:generate -B \
  -DarchetypeGroupId=com.atlassian.bamboo -DarchetypeArtifactId=bamboo-specs-archetype \
  -DarchetypeVersion=6.x.x \ -DartifactId=bamboo-specs \

Your sample project is created. You can then replace or modify with your generated Specs code.

Hope that helps.

Cheers, Jey
