Class not found in SDK


I'm using JIRA6.0.3 and I'm trying to rebuild a plugin I made to work on an older version (and it worked).

In atlassian-plugin-sdk-4.2.0 I have the class


and I succeed in packaging my jar file. But when I run it, on the server, in the directory


there isn't the TextAnalyzer.class file (and some other classes differ)

Where am I wrong? Should I use some different version ?

Here are the early rows of the error I get when JIRA's starting

2013-07-04 10:11:52,890 ThreadPoolAsyncTaskExecutor::Thread 5 ERROR [plugin.osgi.factory.OsgiPlugin] Unable to start the plugin container for plugin

Plase provide your plugin pom.xml file. A possible problem would be wrong dependency to "atlassian-jira", but in 6.x you shoild depend on jira-api and jira-core

Yes Boris, you are right.
Adding dependencies from jira-api and jira-core all is ok now.

Thank you very much

Could you please mark my answer as correct.
