File f = new File(".txt File Path");

       BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream(f)));

       String[] array = null;

       String text = null;


       while ((text = br.readLine()) != null)


       array= text.split("\t"); 

      User a = userUtil.createUserNoNotification(array[0], array[3], array[1], array[2]);

Do you execute that code from inside a plugin or you've just created a Java class and want to add users ?

If you're not inside a plugin this code will not work and you should consider creating users using the REST api through the Jira Java Rest Client


Also it's generraly a good practice to also include part of the exception when you ask a question, so it's visible exaclty where the exception is thrown
