SOAP Web Service Client in Jira 8 plugin

Hello, everyone!

I hope these samples of a SOAP web service client usage in a Jira custom plugin help you in your implementations .

You can find complete code here:

There are two part of the project:

  • jira-ws-plugin – the custom Jira plugin (8.13.6) with Axis2 SOAP web service client and its scheduled background job runner.

  • producing-ws-server – the Spring-boot sample web service server for the jira-ws-plugin demo. To start it just execute mvn spring-boot:run in comman line. You can check it with url http://localhost:8888/ws/currency.wsdl


Install the Atlassian SDK and configure your environment.

Create a new Jira plugin project.

Add the maven plugin to generate classes.

It takes as input a WSDL and generates client stubs for calling a web service matching the WSDL.


Add Axis2 dependencies 

<!-- Web Service -->

Some of it (with scope provided) to exclude the enforcer plugin "banned" dependencies

Also add to the Import-Package tag the following dependency:


Add the SOAP Web Service client component

We can run this service from the other part of the plugin

public class ExchangeRateServiceImpl implements ExchangeRateService {

private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(ExchangeRateServiceImpl.class);

public double exchangeRateUSD() {
double currencyValue = -1;
try {
CurrencyPortServiceStub stub = new CurrencyPortServiceStub();
// Authentication
// setAuth(stub, username, password);
CurrencyPortServiceStub.GetExchangeRateRequest request = new CurrencyPortServiceStub.GetExchangeRateRequest();
CurrencyPortServiceStub.GetExchangeRateResponse exchangeRateResponse = stub.getExchangeRate(request);
currencyValue = exchangeRateResponse.getExchangeRate().getCurrencyValue();
} catch (RemoteException rex) {
}"=============================");"USD exchange rate: {}", currencyValue);"=============================");
return currencyValue;

Optional code for the component execution

Manually with the REST resource ( - http://<JIRA_BASE_URL>rest/exchangerate/1.0/message

with the http GET response:

<value>USD exchange rate: 3.0</value>

or it can be scheduled as the background job runner (
