postgreSQL driver in bamboo Edited

i want to develop a bamboo plugin, and i need to test  it in a safe environment.

i installed bamboo server on my macbook, and for the database.

I used this to connect to the database using jdbc, but I get the error

No suitable driver found for jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/bamboo

I tried including


in my java class, but it does not find the class.


How do I include the driver in my plugin ?

You'll have to add the jdbc driver into the /lib directory of tomcat for Bamboo

and then restart bamboo

I don't find a tomcat directory, where is it ?

I tried adding the jar to


but it does not work

How did you install your bamboo?

I downloaded the archive here


for writing the plugin I installed atlassian sdk using homebrew.

Try ${bambooHome}/lib then check that you have the driver that matches your postgres version

I have downloaded the latest jdbc jar in this folder, but it still does not find it, I have bamboo 5.15.5 with java 8 and postgreSQL 9.6, so I used the 4.2 version.

I tried


and it return an empty list

I tried different locations


and none of them worked.

do I need to include the driver in the pom.xml of the plugin ?

if so, How do I do that ?
