Can we write plug-ins with Kotlin for Jira?

I asked this question also here. When a question is not answered in an active forum it usually means there is something wrong with it. :-)

I started writing plug-ins using Jira plug-in SDK which uses Java. Thought maybe as Kotlin also runs on JVM it could be possible to write the codes in Kotlin.

In the view that Kotlin runs on JVM it may be possible to write a plugin in Kotlin for JIRA. However, it will be a research project in itself and it is not supported by Atlassian.

Writing it using the Atlassian SDK is the preferred way and it has all advantages of community support, testing, SDK features etc.,

As Java and Kotlin can coexist what I meant is using current Atlassian SDK to write Kotlin plug-ins.

Food for the brain. Have to really try it out to find the caveats.

I am also interested in writing plugins in Kotlin. I think it's possible as Kotlin is interoperable with Java but there seems to be some issues and a workaround.

Please vote for this Jira issue so that Atlassian improves Kotlin support:
