Why does JIRA look for carol.jar instead of carol-1.5.2.jar that comes with the install? Edited

I installed Atlassian-plguin-sdk 6.2.14. I created a skeleton plugin by using


Then I ran in the directory with pom.xml


and I got a few exceptions such as this example:

[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] java.io.FileNotFoundException: E:\myplugin\target\container\tomcat8x\cargo-jira-home\common\lib\carol.jar (The system cannot find the file specified)

The interesting thing is that I am able to find carol-1.5.2.jar in the target location:


So why does JIRA specifically look for carol.jar, not carol-1.5.2.jar that comes with the install? How to fix it?

I am new to JIRA. Any input is really appreciated.
