#StackBounty: #java #rest #maven #jira #pom.xml AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory cannot be converted to JiraRestClientFactory

Bounty: 50

I’m trying to do some very basic Jira interaction using the REST API, but failing at every hurdle. I haven’t even tried sending any requests or anything yet, I’m simply trying to initialize the client. I got most of the following code online from others who were using it, but for some reason, I can’t get it to work.

I keep getting this compilation error:

com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.internal.async.AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory cannot be converted to com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.JiraRestClientFactory

My .java file looks like this:

package com.atlassian.tutorial.macro;

import com.atlassian.confluence.content.render.xhtml.ConversionContext;
import com.atlassian.confluence.macro.Macro;
import com.atlassian.confluence.macro.MacroExecutionException;

import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.JiraRestClient;
import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.JiraRestClientFactory;
import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.domain.User;
import com.atlassian.jira.rest.client.internal.async.AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory;
import com.atlassian.util.concurrent.Promise;

import java.net.URI;

import java.util.Map;

public class helloworld implements Macro {

    private static final String JIRA_URL = "http://localhost:2990/jira";
    private static final String JIRA_ADMIN_USERNAME = "admin";
    private static final String JIRA_ADMIN_PASSWORD = "admin";

    public String execute(Map<String, String> map, String s, ConversionContext conversionContext) throws MacroExecutionException {

        JiraRestClientFactory factory = new AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory();
        URI uri = new URI(JIRA_URL);
        JiraRestClient client = factory.createWithBasicHttpAuthentication(uri, JIRA_ADMIN_USERNAME, JIRA_ADMIN_PASSWORD);
   }

        public BodyType getBodyType() { return BodyType.NONE; }
        public OutputType getOutputType() { return OutputType.BLOCK; }
}

And my pom.xml file looks like this:

I appreciate the xml file is a bit of a mess. I’m completely new to Java, pom.xml files and REST APIs, so any advice will be greatly appreciated.
