MailServiceQueueItemBuilder cannot be resolved to a type

Hi All,

I'm developing plugin which sends email after IssueWatcherAddedEvent and I want to use MailServiceQueueItemBuilder class but I have problem with classes from com.atlassian.jira.mail.* package.

Very few classes are resolved from this package. Maybe I should add some dependencies in my plugin but I don't know which one.

In my code I use MailServiceQueueItemBuilder and/or EmailBuilder and both of them cannot be resolved in Eclipse but compilation (atlas-compile) and packaging (atlas-package) work without any errors.

Problem is that my plugin raises an exception during runtime.

WatcherEventListener@1066222}]' from the invoker 'java.lang.RuntimeException: Unresolved compilation problems:
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer]   The import com.atlassian.jira.mail.MailServiceQueueItemBuilder cannot be resolved
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer]   MailServiceQueueItemBuilder cannot be resolved to a type
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] '

Maybe somebody know where the problem is? I would be grateful.

amps.version: 5.0.4

jira.version: 6.3.10


Best regards,

You have to uncomment the jira-core dependency in the pom.xml and rebuild the project.


I had such dependency but probably I didn't run atlas-mvn eclipse:eclipse so I've done it and now Eclipse can resolve this type and moreover also runtime error is not present anymore. Thank You.
