Java Spec for custom task types - unable to load properties

I'm trying to build a custom task plugin, I tried to follow provided documentation:

But unfortunately I ended with exception:


Class '' is not allowed in YAML 

After some debugging I was able to identify that Yaml loader has a whitelisted namespaces which are allowed. I renamed my package to match required regexp but I ended with

exception=Class not found:

Looks like some classloader issue.

Plugin works totally fine, spec files are compilling, and exporter works fine (I can download JavaSpec files from plan edit section).

or by adding command line parameter at startup:

We're introducing the any-task command thanks to which you can use tasks from any Marketplace app in Bamboo YAML Specs.
