I've written a scheduled task to run on JIRA version 6.0.6(following the tutorial in the JIRA cookbook). It says to add your jar file to "WEB-INF/lib" folders and reference it in "WEB-INF/classes/schduler-config.xml " in the following manner.
<job name="ATask" class="com.a.b.APluginPackage.ScheduledTask" />
This method works fine.
What I would like to know is, if there is a way of adding the jar file to a different location, like "/jira_home/plugins/installed-plugins" location (ideally upload the jar as a plug-in and reference it in the scheduler-config.xml )and reference this from the scheduled task in the following way.
<job name="ATask" class="<full path to installed directory>com.a.b.APluginPackage.ScheduledTask" />
I've tried this method but it does not seem to work and throws the errors at startup.
/jira_home/plugins/installed-plugins/com.a.b.APluginPackage.ScheduledTask 2014-01-06 12:11:17,378 localhost-startStop-1 FATAL [atlassian.jira.scheduler.JiraSchedulerLauncher] A RuntimeException occurred during JiraSchedulerLauncher servlet context initialisation - null. java.lang.NullPointerException at com.atlassian.scheduler.SchedulerUtil.initializeAndStart(SchedulerUtil.java:28) at com.atlassian.jira.scheduler.JiraSchedulerLauncher.proceedIfAllClear(JiraSchedulerLauncher.java:60) at com.atlassian.jira.scheduler.JiraSchedulerLauncher.start(JiraSchedulerLauncher.java:27)
Is it possible to use this method or is it mandotory for the jar file to be in the WEB-INF/lib folder?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
