How to set values for an issue using listeners?

Hi, I am writing a listener to handle one of the event. I dont see any methods in the Issue object for setting values to some custom fileds defined. Is it not possible to set values to Issue object using listeners?

It's quite easy, but an issue object is an object. If you want to change something, you need to work with a mutable issue instead.

Remember that even when you have one of those, you won't be able to change the status directly, but you'll be able to change everything else on the issue.

Hi Nic, Thanks for your answer.

I followed the second approach for writing the listener and placed the jar in the installed plugins folder. When i try add the listener to jira, i am getting the following exception..

Class [com.examples.jira.listeners.MoveIssueListener] is not of type JiraListener

Please advise
