Confluence: Is it possible to hook into a "save page" event?


In Confluence, I would like to hook into a "save page" event (to export a PDF-version of the page.

Is this possible? If yes, can you please give me directions of how to do it? Atlassian support thinks it's probably not feasible using the APIs (XML-RPC / SOAP / RESTful), but maybe possible by writing a custom plugin.

Can you help me? Any hint is very welcome!

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Yes, create a new plugin with an Event Listener module e.g.

public class EventListener implements DisposableBean
	public void pageCreateEvent(PageCreateEvent event)
	    System.out.println("Page Create Event");

	public void pageUpdateEvent(PageUpdateEvent event)
	    System.out.println("Page Update Event");
