Is it okay to have v1 plug-ins in JIRA 6.x or is it best practice to have all v2 plug-ins? Also is a v1 plug-in considered as not recommended because it adds jars to WEB-INF/libs which contains all other JIRA system jars?
Is there a security concern or will atlassian support provided be lessened due to having v1 plug-ins?
Any clarification would be appreciated.
It is okay to have v1 plugins although v2 is recommended because it makes the upgrades easier. Atlassian support won't be limited just because you have a v1 plugin.
For the sheduled task using scheduler-config.xml, you must do it as v1 plugin. But there is another approach to do scheduled tasks in JIRA using SAL. See https://developer.atlassian.com/display/DOCS/Plugin+Tutorial+-+Scheduling+Events+via+SAL. That will be a v2 plugin.
Its because what I've written is a scheduled task, and I can't find a way to reference the jar file included in WEB-INF/lib from WEB-INF/classes/scheduler-config.xml if I put the jar file in any other folder, as in make it a version 2 plug-in and then the installed folder becomes different.
Is there any other way of doing this?
