Introduction to the structure of JIRA source code

There are so many sub-projects in the JIRA source code, is there some documents to explain what's purpose of every sub-project?

And how to debug the JIRA source code in local machine?

Hi HongChao,

There isn't a document that explains each of the subfolders, etc in the JIRA Source Code but that would be beneficial.  You can help get that created by going to and creating a feature request to have the developers publish and article such as the one you're seeking.  

In regards to debugging JIRA, there are two articles that may help you:

Creating a Remote Debug Target


Finally, you may also want to reach out to the Developer Community to see if you can get further answers in relation to the folder structure.



thanks very much
