Connect to Bitbucket database from bitbucket plugin

Venkata Nagarjuna Dondapati May 10, 2017


I have an instance of Bitbucket which has an Oracle database. I am creating a plugin where I need to use the database tables directly (not the AO tables). Is there any way to achive this?

Do I need to use a normal JPA framework inside the plugin to fetch the details? If yes, how do I get the database credentials from the APIs without the need to store them inside the code?
