Class Not Found Exception


I am developing a web-items plugin (we'll call x) and have been trying to get past this issue for a while now. I am trying to use methods from another custom plugin (we'll call y). However I keep getting a Class Not Found Exception error when actually using the plugin. It builds fine without errors, but when I go to use the plugin I get the Class Not Found Exception error and the logs say 'y not found by x'


I have tried the following:

  • Put the jar of y in the classpath
  • Put the path as an import package in both pom and atlassian-plugin
  • put the path as an export package in pom


Plugin y does not have a pom (Its a plugin to link our Jira to Perforce), so I'm wondering if this is the problem.


Any ideas on anything else I can try?
