We were using SOAP API calls from other applications to JIRA 6. However after upgrade to JIRA7, the SOAP API calls are failing because it has been removed.
My questions is, is it possible to restore SOAP API calls on JIRA7 by adding some plugins or JAR files etc?
In theory, yes, you could use add-ons to enable JIRA 7 to respond to SOAP calls.
However, you're going to have to write it for yourself. The code for SOAP in the old 6.3 and below systems is not compatible with version 7. It would probably be better to put the effort into converting the other applications to use REST (or if both of those options are too big, maybe writing a translating service - a server program that can take the SOAP calls, convert them into REST and poke them over to JIRA)
You'll need to rewrite it. A lot of the internal stuff has changed in 7, especially users, and there's a lot of refactoring that dropped stuff Atlassian had deprecated but not removed until they got to 7.
And I would look to 6.3 - SOAP went away in 6.4 (code might still be there, dormant, but it was removed from 6.4, so I wouldn't bet on it existing or being useful)
