No Need To Restart JIRA

Atlassian Summit has come and gone, and was a lot of fun. My book was well received, so I'm happy. Something else makes me very happy is the release of JIRA 4.4. Beta1 because now all JIRA plugins can be reloaded without restarting JIRA.

It's a simple thing but it used to suck so much time during plugin development. This time I was creating a new Active Objects plugin, so installed it as usual for a JIRA plugin. Then I rebuilt it and uploaded it from the JIRA plugin manager. Three clicks later the updated plugin was installed and working.
