Using Spring frameworks within Jira/Confluence plugin?

Can I import different Spring framework libraries (e.g Spring Integration) and use them effectively within a Jira/Confluence plugin. I would like to hear from anybody that has dealt with something like that and if there are any peculiarities around achieving it.

Just take a look on what's provided and if it's not there, just import the jar you need. But be careful, as confluence and jira are using quite old versions of spring.

Using newer versions might work in theory because of OSGi but I never tried that.

Thanks, where can I see the version of spring that a particular product (Jira/Confl) uses?

Create a plugin project and import this maven project in your ide -> https://developer.atlassian.com/display/DOCS/Set+up+the+Atlassian+Plugin+SDK+and+Build+a+Project

The only thing is, you need a proper maven support in your ide, then you can see all dependencies and can see whioch version you need.

true, I had a roller coaster ride while integrating hibernate with JIRA smile
