Jira - sending notification email


I'd like to send email to the user when issue is updated.

I've extended AbstractIssueEventListener - and issueEvent method is beeing called. I've also created ApplicationUser object and now I'd like to send email to user - but I'm not going to create email body on my self - I have to resend standard email to the user (the same as Jira sends automatically).

How can I reuse existing Jira templates and mechanism for resending it?

Could anybody give me a hint what service can I use?

Best regards

JIRA already sends in email notification when issue is updated? 
Which event are you looking for to generate an email for? 

Yes, jira already sends it - I'd like send it once again (I know, user will have duplicates).

I've catched valid event - all I have to do now is just resend to user the same email, as user receives if comment to issue is added.

Maybe I can use IssueMailQueueItemFactory, but this class it not accessible even I add dependency to jira-core...
