I'm upgrading Bamboo from v5.4.2 to v5.14.3.1 and wanted to know how can I send an email from a custom plugin

I am upgrading Bamboo and have a custom plugin that I'd like to send email but I'm having a hard time getting it to work. Is there any developer documents or examples that I can take a look at to get this working?

If he can't do it the way he was doing it perhaps this might work? 


Email email = new Email(recipient).setSubject(subject).setBody(message); 

eventPublisher.publish(new EmailEvent(this, email));

Is there a specific problem you have with that plugin?

I can't instantiate BambooMailer. Prior to v5.10 it was a no argument constructor.


bambooMailer = new BambooMailer(new EmailService(new XMLMailServerManager())); gives a signature mismatch

bambooMailer = new BambooMailer(new EmailService(new BambooMailServerManager())); gives a signature mismatch

BambooMailServerManager bambooMailServerManager = new BambooMailServerManager();
SMTPMailServer mailServer = bambooMailServerManager.getDefaultSMTPMailServer(); gives a NPE

BambooMailer is a Spring bean that was never available to plugins and you're not supposed to initialize it manually. You'll have to send the email using standard Java APIs.

I don't see why it shouldn't be made available to plugins - feel free to open an improvement request at
