I think pom.xml needs to be reconfigured.

I would suggest you create an empty plugin for the jira version you are on and then pick that pom.xml and as a template and edit that for your own plugin.

See if that helps.


I Think its the jira-core that i have referenced. I am trying to test the sample project provided in the website and I also tried to remove all the dependencies. If i do so then JIra does not get started up at the end of the compimlation.

Has any one has this issue and found a way to resolve this issue. If i clean up the whole pom then i cannot compile or start JIra at the end of compilaton. Please help I am stuck with this for a while and i need a solution to proceed.

I cleared the dependencies in my pom and ran atlas-run and still got the same error. Is there any thing in the atlas-run that i can override.
