JIRA Plugin customfield Startup Failed

I have developed a JIRA customfield Plugin, the JAVA sourcecode doesn't show me any Errors.

I am able to install this plugin with all modules and it is running perfectly.

But if i try to restart JIRA Server I get an ERROR in the JIRA log file and the startup Screen looks like this.



The ERROR code in the atlassian-jira.log is:


2016-02-12 10:45:03,894 localhost-startStop-1 INFO      [c.a.jira.startup.LauncherContextListener] Memory Usage:

I hope any one can help me with my problem...

Something is stopping the system plugins from loading - sometimes this is resources on the server (you can increase the timeout, or give it more memory), but as you're writing an add-on, it suggests it's your add-on blocking the others.  Read further back up the log to find out what loading your add-on is doing.

I found my problem why the JIRA server doesnt start, I have implemented a wrong dependency in the pom.xml







instead of this you have to use this one:








all libraries of jersey are implemented in this dependency smile
