jira plugin pom copy jtd

How can I modify my plugin's pom.xml file so that it copies jtds-1.2.4.jar to my JiraPlugin\target\jira\webapp\WEB-INF\lib after compiling?

Hi Angelo,

Add the following dependency to your pom.xml:


Hope this helps?!

It doesen't look like the file is copied to WEB-INF/lib

Hi Angelo,

Is the file somewhere in your package?

Hi Angelo,

Normally you would update your driver in de lib directory of your tomcat. Since you are apparently testing on you local machine, you can use the following plugin to manualy copy files to the target directory:


Hi Benji, can I do that in the pom file after compiling but before running tomcat?

I already tried using that plugin but the phase where maven copies the other bundled jars fails with an error

Hi Angelo,

The phase tag in the plugin configuration tells maven when to execute the action. More info about the maven build cycle


The validate phase is even before compilation, so you probably need to add it to the compile or package phase.

Hi Benji, thanks for the hint, unfortunately I tried with every phase but none is run after the lib directory creation or just before jira is run

Why do you want the jar file under WEB-INF/lib? If it is needed by the plugin, it should only be under the plugins classpath. You can just give the dependency scope as compile and the jar will be available in the META-INF/lib folder after packaging.

I have an sql test server for jira and I want to be connected to it when I do a atlas-run after atlas-clean, to do that I copy dbconfig.xml in jira/home but I get an error for the missing drivers
