How can I import JTSL libraries in Confluence ?

Why would you need it? You cannot use JSPs as your templates in Confluence. 

You can have a servlet defined, yes, but the templating engine is Velocity, not JSP.

Actually, my goal is to use the Confluence's instance web server functionality to call a user defines JSP which will be located http://Confluence Apps/admin/xxxxxx.jsp to access a table and to display the content on screen:

I have created the following:


<html> <head><title>Space/Page Statistics</title></head> <body> <%@ page import="java.util.*" %> <%@ page import="javax.sql.*;" %> <%

java.sql.Connection con; java.sql.Statement s; java.sql.ResultSet rs; java.sql.PreparedStatement pst;

con=null; s=null; pst=null; rs=null;

// Remember to change the next line with your own environment  String url=  "jdbc:mysql://mysql-wiki-1.test.internal/wiki";  String id= "";  String pass = "";


 Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");  con = java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url, id, pass);

 }catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfex){  cnfex.printStackTrace();

 }  String sql = "SELECT PageAccessedURL, COUNT(PageAccessedURL) `HitCount` FROM confluence_access_logs WHERE EntryDate >= '2015-01-06 18:46:50' AND EntryDate <= '2015-01-07 00:20:21' GROUP BY PageAccessedURL ORDER BY HitCount DESC limit 10  ";

 try{  s = con.createStatement();  rs = s.executeQuery(sql);  %> <table border="1"> <tr>  <th>Space/Page Name</th>  <th>Hit Count  </th> </tr>  <%  while( ){  %><tr>  <td><%= rs.getString("PageAccessedURL") %></td>  <td><b><%= rs.getString("HitCount") %></b></td>  </tr>  <%  }  %>



 catch(Exception e){e.printStackTrace();}  finally{  if(rs!=null) rs.close();  if(s!=null) s.close();  if(con!=null) con.close();  }

 %> </table>  </body>  </html>


I believe that developing this as a plugin would make more sense (as additionally to custom functionality you can develop yourself, there is a huge stack of Atlassian libraries you can access/use, and it is all initialized and ready to use, knows your user, context, etc). And for this particular case there are plugins already available: PocketQuery Developing some custom JSPs that just run within the Java Container... especially, the code you have pasted: no db connection pool, driver is initialized on request... not very efficient

Have use the plugin before ? Can't seem to configure using the Dynamic parameter as I need to request start and end date from user in the form of Month and year.

Have not used the plugin in real-world scenarios. So, developing a custom plugin for Confluence is a better option, than messing around with custom JSPs. We can take it offline, contact us via the contact form on and I can try to help you to start with your custom plugin development
