Start with https://developer.atlassian.com/display/DOCS/Getting+Started

Very briefly though - download the SDK and do some reading - the SDK lets you get stuck straight into coding, and one of the (many) nice things it does is provides an entire environment. Once you've got it installed, you can run one script to create a plugin skeleton, and then immediately run a second script which will compile it, build the plugin, download the target version of Jira, install it with some basic starting data, run it and enable your plugin.

Thanks a bunch, helps a lot. Now lets start descover JIRA :D
