How to handle dependencies for jira plugins (in IntelliJ IDEA)?

I developed a jira plugin in eclipse. It's working so far. Now I wanted to switch to IntelliJ IDEA. There I activated the plugin to handle the dependencies with Maven.

For some imports in the java files IntelliJ is complaining about missing dependencies. For example "org.slf4j.Logger" or "com.atlassian.plugin.PluginParseException" or "javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet".

In an example project I saw that they added these lines for example in the pom.xml:




This doesn't work in IntelliJ because the IDE needs the version of the dependencies. Now for me is the question how to know which version is provided by Jira 7.3.3 for example. If I search for "javax.servlet" in IntelliJ then there are for example version 2.5 or 3.0.1. And for "slf4j" I don't know if "slf4j-simple" is the right one because the maven of IntelliJ cannot find it.

In eclipse I could use "atlas-mvn eclipse:eclipse" which added all dependencies so that eclipse didn't complained about missing dependencies.

So my questions are:

  • How do I know which versions are provided by the target Jira Version?
  • How you handle in general these dependencies in IntelliJ?

Hi Jens - since this is development related, you might want to try asking this over at: as well (if you haven't already).

Hoepfully someone over there will be able to help.

Oh, thanks I will ask there. :)
