In order to create a Jira plugin, is it possible to do it with a jsp insted of a vm file?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to develop a jira plugin that will use a form to get some data. The thing is that I have always used jsp files to access the servlet data, but reading questions I saw that adding a jsp to a plugin is not possible (it doesn't work), I read that if you want to create a view as a jsp would do, you'll have to use a velocity template.

Is this true??

Thanks in advance.

Thank you Bhushan!!...I'm going to take a look at it and see what I find there.


Also refer to

The document states "However, jsp files cannot currently be bundled in the plugin jar file and have to be installed in a separate step when deploying such a plugin."

And you can also take a look at Raise a request if you are looking for a particular tutorial.
