Groovy directory structure


and another question smile

I downloaded the maven froject from

As I understand it the src/main/resource dir is for all my scripts and goes to JiraHome/Scripts later on production.


Is there a common dir structure for other files like config, velocity templates (thx for the hint in another question), my own library etc?

Or can I organize that stuff myself like:



src/main/resource/src   <- for my other classes which do not belong in library

src/main/resource/view <- email templates etc


Or am I totally off and I can go outside resources and have to put all the stuff there?

Hi Marc,

Their is no standard defined structure which is published and advised to follow.

I would personally organise my code in my development environment in a very similar way that the Atlassian plugin structure is defined which would be as shown below:

src/main/resources/groovy <-  Store all of the main groovy scripts here

src/main/resources/config  <- Store all config files here

src/main/resources/templates <- Store all templates here

src/main/resources/images <- Store all images here

src/main/resource/library <- Store all third parties librays here.

I hope this helps



Ah, I see, I have something similar now, but whith module "support":

When the ressources dir is the JiraHome/scripts dir, can I execute files in /groovy from Script Runner->Script Listeners->Custom listener?
