Cannot find NumberCFType class when developing plugin with Atlassian SDK

In a java file of my plugin I could not figure out how to correctly import the class NumberCFType

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.NumberCFType;

I got error when I run atlas-run

cannot find symbol

symbol : class NumberCFType

location: package com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl

However import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.TextCFType; works for me.

I use the lastest SDK with JIRA 5.1.8

Does you pom import the jira-core api's, note: This is not normally recommended, but may be required eg when migrating a plugin originally developed against JIRA 4.x ?


In order to avoid jira-core I guess I will have to use the AbstractSingleCFType instead of NumberCFType. As I know nothing about java I would appreciate if someone can help rewrite this code below

public class UniqueIssueId extends NumberCFType {
    public UniqueIssueId(CustomFieldValuePersister customFieldValuePersister,
            DoubleConverter doubleConverter,
            GenericConfigManager genericConfigManager) {
        super(customFieldValuePersister, doubleConverter, genericConfigManager);

    public Double getValueFromIssue(CustomField field, Issue issue) {
        return issue.getId().doubleValue();

with AbstractSingleCFType

public class UniqueIssueId extends AbstractSingleCFType {
