Using plan defined variables from Bamboo plugin

I am developing a plugin and I need to replace a Bamboo user-defined variable (of a build plan) in a string with the actual value from the source code of the plugin.


I mean, replace:

"Hello, I'm ${bamboo.author}"

with:

"Hello, I'm Luis"

, supposing that author=Luis in this moment.

How can I achieve this?


Needless to say that I don't want to parse the string manually (looking for "author", "${" or whatever), since this is not an elegant option. I really think that the Bamboo API provides something to list defined variables of something like that.

Thx,

Luis

More info:

I finally found some useful classes in com.atlassian.bamboo.variable; this is my code:

	private String replaceVars(String str, PlanKey plk)
{
String result = str;
VariableDefinitionManagerImpl vdm = new VariableDefinitionManagerImpl(new VariableDefinitionHibernateDao(),
new VariableDefinitionFactoryImpl());
List<VariableDefinition> variables = vdm.getGlobalVariables();
log.debug("Current plan " + plk.getKey());

if (variables.isEmpty())
{
return result;
}

for (VariableDefinition variable : variables)
{
log.debug("Variable " + variable.getKey());
Plan varPlan = variable.getPlan();
log.debug("Plan " + varPlan.getKey());

if (!isCurrentPlan(plk, varPlan.getPlanKey()))
{
continue;
}

VariableDefinitionImpl varImpl = (VariableDefinitionImpl) variable;
log.debug("VariableImpl " + varImpl.getKey() + "; Value: " + varImpl.getValue());
result = result.replaceAll(varImpl.getKey(), varImpl.getValue());
}
log.debug("selector result: " + str);
return result;
}

private boolean isCurrentPlan(PlanKey currentPlanKey, PlanKey plKey)
{
return (currentPlanKey.getKey().equals(plKey.getKey()));
}

The problem is that I get a null in com.atlassian.bamboo.variable.VariableDefinitionHibernateDao.findGlobalVariables(VariableDefinitionHibernateDao.java:33)

There is almost a variable defined in my current plan, so I don't know where the problem is, really.

Can somebody help me?

Thanks,
Luis
