How to register an event listener without depending on jira-core?

I am writing an event listener and I am wondering how to register the listener at the event system. The old Atlassian tutorial says that I should use InitializingBean and DisposableBean for that task. But both classes are part of the jira-core Maven dependency and Atlassian says that developers should avoid using this dependency.

Is there another way to do this?

Hi Steffen,

Actually InitializingBean and DisposableBean are parts of org.springframework:spring-beans library. So you can just include spring-beans in your plugin dependencies.

BTW, you can use jira-core but you should remember that it could be changed in further releases. But I believe InitializingBean and DisposableBean would not be changed.
