Could not found a class in Jira api

We are now develop and upgrade a plugin.This plug works with Jira 4.2.1 lib(jira4.2.1.jar), but failed to complie with Jira 4.5.1 API(Jira-api-4.4.5.jar) for some classes not longer exist.One of them is com.atlassian.jira.issue.RendererManager. But we could still found this class at

Is there something wrong with the document or the API jar file?

Hi Shuo Li,

The stable Jira API is a new feature of version 5.0

For version 4.x the API jar has been developed but it was fragile. You can use the com.atlassian.jira:jira-core:4.4.5 instead.

You can also give a try to use com.atlassian.jira:jira-api:5.0, after reading

The javadoc for Jira 4.x contains all the classes of the Jira API and Jira internals.
