where to store java code for creating plugin?

Plugins are written to enhance JIRA's functionality. There are many tutorials available and for me, the simplest one being adding your own menu item.


There is also a simple tutorial I have written which you might find helpful.


Let us know if you need any help.

To answer your question where to store java code?

When you create a jira plugin module, you enter the class name and package name. You will find these .java files created under your plugins /src folder where you can write your own implementation.
