How do I add ActiveObject to my classpath.

Hi,

I just gettings started writing my first jira plugin in eclipse juno with the maven (m2) plugin installed. The plugin will need to persist and retrieve data, so I have followed as much advice and tutorials as I could find about the activeobjects plugin, but no matter what I add to my maven pom file etc., I cant get the components to load to my classpath.

As I say, I've been trying this for hours now and have had no success, so if someone could point me to the solution (I have been to all atlassian tutorials found around this one https://developer.atlassian.com/display/AO/Getting+Started+with+Active+Objects).

What am I doing wrong?

:-)

heres the meat of the pom

There is no need to add this library manually. This library is already included in Jira!

it seems it had something todo with my environment, mac osx, eclispe etc. I installed everything on a ubuntu vm and it worked pretty much out of the box.. Problem solved I guess
