unable to follow instruction on SDK Development - RefApp

I am not able to follow the instruction on the documentation of Create a plugin Skeleton:


First I got the error of not able to resolve the version of 2.23.5. Then I see another thread related to that suggesting to change the pom file for refapp.version to 2.22.0 as the following because the repository only contains up to 2.22.0:



After the change, while the server got started, I am not able to access the website, I got a HTTP Status 404 page when I access: http://localhost:5990/refapp/. Any idea how to make the tutorial work for the latest? I am using jdk 1.7. Do I have to use jdk 1.6?

Was there message in console that refapp started:

[INFO] refapp started successfully in 46s at http://localhost:5990/refapp

Also please check if there any errors in log file. Be default it should be in 


it showed [INFO] refapp started successfully in 46s at http://bchung:5990/refapp bchung is basically the localhost I cannot find any refapp.log anywhere under c:\atlasturtorial or c:\atlastutorial\adminUI

Hey Bryan


Try deleting "atlassian-plugin.xml" file  in src/test/ folder and try rebuilding the plugin.


I deleted the following directories following the documentation $ rm -rf src/test/java/ $ rm -rf src/test/resources/ and I restarted the atlas-run and still got the same error

when you do atlas-run, you should redirect the output to a file. like "atlas-run > log.txt" to capture the log then check log.txt for any "error"

if you get the bellow message then when you hit that url do you get 404? [INFO] refapp started successfully in 46s at http://bchung:5990/refapp
