Communicating to an external SOAP-WS from a Jira App

Hi there,

for one of our client projects we need to develop a Jira App that exchanges data with a SOAP-WS, but unfortunately, all approaches we tried using various SOAP libraries failed within Jira.
Outside of Jira those libraries work just fine and communication with the web service works without issues.

Unfortunately there’s also just this implementation of the service and no alternative to use REST or similar. Unless, of course, there’s a good service/interface we could use to translate between a REST client and the SOAP-service.

The libs we’ve tried were axis2 and jax-ws. Errors differed between libraries but were all along the lines of ClassNotFound Exceptions.

Does someone have experience with working with SOAP from inside a Jira App? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much!

Regards
Philipp
