Second JIRA book available

The O'Reilly page for Practical JIRA Plugins is live! The second book follows the poultry theme of the first and has a duck on its cover. This book is a bit more technical than Practical JIRA Administration but should help anyone wanting to write their own plugins for JIRA.

p.s. Guess what I'm going to eat to celebrate this book!

    Is it duck?

  2. Hi Matt,
    Just got a copy of your book. I was looking for information on whats the best way to perform certain operations during plugin installation (e.g. create DB tables, edit/populate configuration data etc) and cleanup during unInstallation. I couldnt find any pertinent information in the book. Do you have any suggestions?

  3. Use ActiveObjects for the database if possible, check out the Configurable Currency sections for configuration data (WebWork). Uninstallation would be an explicit step in the Configuration I guess since JIRA doesn't have a step for it in a plugin's lifecycle.

  4. Hi Matt,
    Read your book. I had a question and have been unable to find an answer to this. Any advice or hint would be appreciated...Heres what i am trying to do..I wanted to have a dropdown Menu on the ViewIssue page. what i found was that the Menus are placed in group like "Edit" is in 1 group, "Assign,Comment,MoreAction" in another. The last one is the one that can be dropdown. How do i add another group similar to "Assign,Comment,MoreAction"?


    Thanks

  5. Probably a better place for this question is answers.atlassian.com. If you post it over there, I can respond to more people.

  6. But I think what you want is an issue-operation plugin module
