getting changes of atlassian-plugin.xml without running atlas-run command


Do we have any way to reflect changes of atlassian-plugin.xml in Jira UI other than atlas-run command?

Becoz every time even running atlas run command taking lot of time. even if I change weight attribute or location of web-item to test every time executing atlas-run command taking time. Please let me know the solution.

Thanks in advance.

This is my knowledge, but I dono exactly, When you change the POM.xml only you need to run atlas-run, I dono may be I am wrong too, If you are using eclipse and maven plugin, then when you change your atlassian-plugin.xml, you can do maven-clean and maven-package(to build it as a JAR) or maven- build to build it.

Hope this hepls.

Tahnks for your response.

I didn't configured jira in eclipse. I am working from command promot and trying to do changes file fin editplus. Any way even in eclipse also you are telling u need to build. Can we skip this building or running atlas-run command every time we do changes to atlassian-plugin.xml?


I dont think so building r running is needed whenever you change the atlassian-plugin.xml, you can clean it and you can run package if you want .jar file, all the changes that you have made in atlassian-plugin.xml will be there in the .jar file.

Hope this helps.
