JiraRMI is a plug-in that exposes much of Jira’s core functions over RMI.




JiraRMI is a plug-in that exposes much of Jira's core functions over RMI allowing for rich integration between Jira and Java applications. It is similar to the Jira RPC (SOAP) plug-in, although more efficient and richer in functionality.

The JiraRMI plug-in is actually not really a plug-in but a Jira service. On Jira start-up, an RMI registry is created and the following RMI objects are registered:

Authentication Service – Authenticates users against Jira and manages JiraRMI sessions.

User Service – Create, update, and search for users using this service. Functions are also provided to reset users' passwords.

Group Service – Manages user groups, including user membership.

Project Service – Includes functions for managing projects, categories and components.

Issue Service – Provides functions for creating, updating and retrieving issues. Also allows you to progress workflow actions.

Work Log Service – Creates, updates, and retrieves issue work logs.

Search Service – Use this interface to search for issues using compound queries.

Workflow Service – Allows you to query project workflows.

Attachment Service – Allows you to manage attachments, including retrieving attachment contents.

Comment Service – Create, update, and retrieve comments using this interface.

Custom Field Service - Allows you to search for custom fields.

Change History Service - Examine the change history of an issue.

Issue Constants Service - Retrieve the issues constants: issue-type, priority, resolution, and status.

Version Service – Retrieves project version information.

JiraRMI was originally developed at ReserveAmerica and has been in production since June of this year.
