How do I send email notifiactions to page watches via a plugin module

I am devloping a plugin, and I have a servlet in which I want to be able to send a custom email to all watches of the page, so it looks like a normal confluence notification, with the start of the body reading: "Your action is needed on this page" and then the usual page link and extract...

How can I do this?

I have found the NotificationManager, but I can't see how to send a custom email. Also I'm not sure how to find all the watches, or how to send to all watches. I would have thought this would have a simple API?

Please help...

I found out the answer, and it's not as easy as I thought, using the example:

I need to go through every user in Confluence, verify if they are watching the page in question, then send off a custom email.

It's not nice and lots of code to send a confluence looking email.

Hi Chris,

plugin module in confluence might help you...


Onkar Ahire!
