I'm assuming you do not mean to use the "OnDemand" tags you've used here?

We can't really help you with the errors you've got because you haven't told us enough. Could you explain:

  1. What instructions you are following
  2. How you compiled and built the plugin (were there errors in there?)
  3. What your log file says for the startup time (again, we're looking for errors in this log)

For your other question, what are you running to start Jira? What about ctrl-c instead of d?

HI, i am new here and dont knw what the onDemand command is for, sry for that.

apart fom that,

1. The instructions i am following are on the official website.
https://developer.atlassian.com/display/DOCS/Create+a+HelloWorld+Plugin+Project

2. there were errors i will post them here, bt i dont think i will be able to post the complete cmd line output file.

and in the end it says failed to initialize.

Also in the end i get this

"JIRA startup failed, JIRA has been locked."

OnDemand is the hosted version, you can't load plugins into that. Hence the tags are inappropriate!

Anyway, the error you're getting is happening before it's getting to your plugins, so it may be that you've done nothing wrong in the code. There's a doc here that covers the usual causes of this pattern of behaviour. It's not quite what you're seeing, but you should definitely run through the "Resolution" section on here to rule it out - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/JIRA+System+Plugin+Timeout+While+Waiting+for+Plugins+to+Enable
