addComponent is not supportet by the current jira api.
this issue is unresolved since 2005. There exists a third party library to add this feature, but this library has to be added to every jira installation. In our mind, this solution looks really dirty.
the alternative is always to throw a domain method not supported exception. This is what I would vote for now
I totally agree with you - this seems the only non dirty way
I think that's OK for now.
We should consider an alternativ non-default JIRA-connector in the future using http://code.google.com/p/shared-space/wiki/JiraExtendedWebservice
OK, do we have to handle this method in any special case (NotSupportedException) or can we simply document this behavior and ignore it?
Yeah I like the idea of a second, non-standard jira connector. @Michael please create a separate issue for this
ok, there was a missunderstanding; issue is correct
