How do you access a Component from another Plugin in ScriptRunner?

I am trying to access a Component from another plugin.

The plugin's atlassian-plugin.xml contains the following definition:

<component key="xxx-dao-service" name="DAO Service" class="com.xxx.jira.plugins.xxx.service.xxxDAOServiceImpl" public="true">
<interface>com.xxx.jira.plugins.xxx.service.xxxDAOService</interface>
</component>

It is a third-party, published plugin that was bought from the Atlassian Marketplace.

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance();
PluginAccessor pluginAccessor = componentManager.getPluginAccessor();
Class daoSvcClass = pluginAccessor.getClassLoader().findClass("com.xxx.jira.plugins.xxx.service.xxxDAOService");
def serviceDao = componentManager.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(daoSvcClass);
log.debug(serviceDao.method(xxx,xxx,xxx))

So how do you access another plugins' components and use the methods therein?

You don't have to include it in your plugin - in fact doing so is not going to work if there are components etc. As Ash said, you should be able to use @WithPlugin and @PluginModule to get access to the services.

If you need to use third-party component you shoul include it into your plugin jar. To do this you should to spesify this into dependences section with scope <compile>. It means that this jar will be included into your jar. And then you can get any class with componentManager.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(daoSvcClass.class)
