Can't get Active Objects to work in Jira Plugin

I am currently doing an internship that involves creating Jira plugins to solve some problems the users at the company experience with Jira. For the first extension I need to create a new section on the view issue page where users can put input and edit the input. In order to do this I’ve created a web-panel which contains a input. But no matter what I try (And I’ve been trying different things for the last 3 weeks) I can’t get active objects to work.

Currently the moment the plugin tries to load in jira it shows the error: “Error rendering ‘tig.jira.extension.tigPasswordExtension:issue-page-input’. Please contact your JIRA administrators.” and when I try to test the REST API call in the restbrowser it shows the error:

"“message”: “AOP configuration seems to be invalid: tried calling method [public abstract net.java.ao.RawEntity[] com.atlassian.activeobjects.external.ActiveObjects.find(java.lang.Class,net.java.ao.Query)] on target [com.atlassian.activeobjects.osgi.TenantAwareActiveObjects@12bfb51b]; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: object is not an instance of declaring class”,
_ “status-code”: 500,"_

Is there anyone here that can replicate my problem and pinpoint what I am screwing up?

    }
}

Make sure that these:
String getIssue();
void setIssue(String issue);

String getContent();
void setContent(String content);

Are public in scope. I haven’t seen this error before but the above will cause issues. If you still have errors - can you post your Pom.xml?(or the dependencies and plugins parts?

Thanks for the fast reply daniel. I just tried it and it still doesn’t work. I forgot to add to the initial question that during debugging the extensions stops working during the line PasswordDto passwordDto = this.passwordService.getByIssueKey(issueKey); or passwordService.update(issueKey, “klote”); if it isn’t commented out.

This is my current pom.xml file"

        </dependency>

after that I think things should start working for you.

I changed it and it still doesn’t work. Do you happen to have any other ideas?

Edit: I manged to get it working using your solution and a new project. Not sure what the problem was but I am glad I got it working in the end.
