Vault - Abstraction Library for Bukkit - Build Status

For Developers:

Please see the VaultAPI page for information on developing with Vault's API. In the past, you would use the same artifact as servers installed, but the API has now been split from the main project and is under a different artifact name. Please make sure you accommodate this change in your build process.


Installing Vault is as simple as copying the provided "Vault.jar" to your "/plugins" directory, and the rest is automatic! If you wish to perform configuration changes, this can be done via a configuration file but should not be necessary in most cases. See the "Advanced Configuration" section for more information.

Why Vault?

I have no preference which library suits your plugin and development efforts best. Really, I thought a central suite (rather...Vault) of solutions was the proper avenue than focusing on a single category of plugin. That's where the idea for Vault came into play.

So, what features do I think you'll like the most?

  • No need to include my source code in your plugin All of Vault is run in its own plugin, so all you need to do is obtain an instance of it! This simplifies issues with multiple plugins using the same namespaces. Just simply add Vault.jar to your download zip file!
  • Broad range of supported plugins I wanted an abstraction layer not only for Economic plugins but also Permission plugins as well.
  • Choice! That's half the fun of Bukkit! We get to choose what to use. More choice has never hurt developers, so here's to choice!


  • vault.admin
    • Determines if a player should receive the update notices

Vault comes with all libraries needed to build from the current branch and also comes with an Apache Ant build file (build.xml) and a Maven build file (pom.xml). Maven is currently the preferred build method.


Because Vault provides a bridge to other plugins, their binaries will be required to build from. To ease this, they have been included in the lib folder and will be updated from time to time. For plugin developers, it is not necessary to use these libraries when implementing Vault. You will only need to compile against Vault.

Supported Plugins

Vault provides abstraction for the following categories and plugins. If you have your own plugin that you believe should be supported, you'll need to add your own connector within your plugin as Vault no longer maintains new plugin connectors.
