how to run a jython script - missing modules

Hi there,

I have a problem running a jython script with the buildin python modules socket and pickle.

In the shell the script works fine and connects to the daemon on another server. So the modules are installed:

The script lies under [...]/confluence-data/script/ and can be executed via confluence with this command


For a testing "Hello World" this works fine to call the script, but when I want to use the mentioned modules, they can't be found.

Traceback (innermost last):
File "<string>", line 2, in ?
ImportError: no module named socket

Does anyone has a clue how to get it working, how to explicit import the modules in confluence?! It would be nice to have this functionality in confluence.

See SCRP-119 comments for instance. I think you need to install whatever libraries you want to use in WEB-INF/lib.

Ok, thx I will try that for the next change.
