Error when manually uploading plugin in crowd 2.3.4

Hi,

We tried uploading plugin manually in crowd (..\plugins\installed-plugins) and started the crowd. We got an error in log files saying

2012-03-08 12:19:35,949 main ERROR [atlassian.plugin.loaders.ScanningPluginLoader] Unable to deploy plugin 'null', file Unit: E:\ToolSet\Data\CrowdData\plugins\installed-plugins (1329978562541)

From the log life, what does the below error mean

ERROR [atlassian.plugin.loaders.ScanningPluginLoader] Unable to deploy plugin 'null', file Unit: E:\ToolSet\Data\CrowdData\plugins\installed-plugins (1329978562541)
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The artifact URI file:/E:/ToolSet/Data/CrowdData/plugins/installed-plugins/ is not a valid plugin artifact.

Appreciate if some one look into it and reply us.

Regards,

Is it a custom plugin? Looks like the plugin is not valid!

yes , it's a custom plugin to provide the links to other applications (jira, confluence ...) from crowd.

Actually we provided links to other applications in jira and confluence, in the same way we are trying for crowd.

The main intention is when a user is logged in to crowd, he should be able to navigate to other applications from the Application dropdownsome thing like this
