cannot get ApplicationLinks to work.....

I have been working on this for days now.....


I need a plugin in JIRA that can query Bitbucket. The result of the queries need to be presented on a panel on the right side. So started with the tutorial DueDateIndicator to get control of the UI.

Next (and this is my headache) I want to get a reference to the applinks, But it fails, never enabling the plugin


import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLinkResponseHandler;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.stash.StashApplicationType;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLink;
import com.atlassian.applinks.api.ApplicationLinkService;
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.plugin.webfragment.contextproviders.AbstractJiraContextProvider;
import com.atlassian.jira.plugin.webfragment.model.JiraHelper;
import java.sql.Timestamp;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;
public class DueDateIndicator extends AbstractJiraContextProvider
    private static final int MILLIS_IN_DAY = 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000;
    private final ApplicationLinkService applicationLinkService;
    public DueDateIndicator (ApplicationLinkService applicationLinkService)
        this.applicationLinkService = applicationLinkService;
    public Map getContextMap(User user, JiraHelper jiraHelper) {
        ApplicationLink application_link = this.applicationLinkService.getPrimaryApplicationLink(com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.stash.StashApplicationType.class);
        Map contextMap = new HashMap();
        Issue currentIssue = (Issue) jiraHelper.getContextParams().get("issue");
        Timestamp dueDate = currentIssue.getDueDate();
        if (dueDate != null)
            int currentTimeInDays = (int) (System.currentTimeMillis() / MILLIS_IN_DAY);
            int dueDateTimeInDays = (int) (dueDate.getTime() / MILLIS_IN_DAY);
            int daysAwayFromDueDateCalc = dueDateTimeInDays - currentTimeInDays + 1;
            contextMap.put("daysAwayFromDueDate", daysAwayFromDueDateCalc);
        return contextMap;


This should not be the hard part right?

My fallback is to just use perl scripting outside of JAVA....   I would really hate going into this direction
