Speeding up Plugin Testing

In order to avoid the need to re-start the entire application server for each integration test cycle, I developed a plugin for Jira 7 that allows the old FastDev test console to be used with the new QuickReload feature. This is based on a suggestion from Christophe Merlotti.

Just insert the following under the existing pluginArtifact in the POM:


The artifact is now in Maven Central. To use it, simply start the application server using atlas-run or atlas-debug and point your browser at http://localhost:2990/jira/plugins/servlet/it-test-console. Note that this supports plugin (wired) tests only; the unit tests should be run from the command line using atlas-package or equivalent, or from within your IDE.
