I would like to read about how to add new tables to a jira database schema(jira properties tables are cool but when too much info needs to be added it gets a bit complicated.).Also a tutorial of a Listener would be nice, i followed the tutorial at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DEVNET/Plugin+Tutorial+-+Writing+event+listeners+with+the+atlassian-event+library and it works but shows no gadget functionality.
Practical JIRA Plugins (http://oreilly.com/catalog/0636920021087) has a chapter about storing data, both using OSProperty and also the newer Active Objects plugin. I would recommend not adding tables manually, but instead use Active Objects for that.I've also added a comment to the event library page.
Another thing that i would like to read is about An example of the JiraFisheyePlugin(https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/FISH/JIRA+FishEye+Plugin), It looks like a very useful plugin but there is almost none documentation about how to use it, wich prerequisites are needed to use it and to provide a way to prove this plugin using the atlassian plugin sdk. I need to check how many changesets haves an issue and that plugin gots a ChangesetManager that makes exactly that.
