How to create Service in Jira Plugin? Edited

I try create Service with JIRA 5.X Development Cookbook

I have

  • JTricksService
  • myjtricksservice.xml


Next step: "Install the plugin using the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM)."

When i try to upload my jar in jira i get the exception:

Could not find the handler capable of installing the plugin in services-plugin-1.0.0.jar. Make sure that the file is a valid plugin.

You still need to have a decriptor file (atlassian-plugin.xml) in your plugin, even if it doesn't have any plugin modules. 

Either you can create a skeleton plugin and start from there (as mentioned in the JIRA Development Cookbook) or add a descriptor file manually.
