You can refer this tutorial . you will need to modify it to make it compatible with Jira 5

If you mean as part of a plugin, then the other answers apply. However, if you are asking how to automate various JIRA activities for intergration with other products, the JIRA Command Line Interface is a simple option. Specifically, createIssue action. Easy to program in Java or scripting languages like groovy :).
