Montoya API v1.0.0 - java.lang.Exception: Extension class is not a recognized type

I would really appreciate if you could write some more documentation for the new API. I can't understand why this won't work. I get the following error message: java.lang.Exception: Extension class is not a recognized type at burp.mk2.o(Unknown Source) at burp.mk2.h(Unknown Source) at burp.pf_.T(Unknown Source) at burp.m7e.l(Unknown Source) at burp.nv3.lambda$panelLoaded$0(Unknown Source) at java.base/java.util.concurrent.Executors$RunnableAdapter.call(Executors.java:539) at java.base/java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:264) at java.base/java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:1136) at java.base/java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$Worker.run(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:635) at java.base/java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:833) Here is the source code for the extension. I've tried to make it super simple. package burp.api.montoya; import burp.api.montoya.http.Http; import burp.api.montoya.http.handler.HttpHandler; import burp.api.montoya.http.handler.HttpRequestToBeSent; import burp.api.montoya.http.handler.HttpResponseReceived; import burp.api.montoya.http.handler.RequestToBeSentAction; import burp.api.montoya.http.handler.ResponseReceivedAction; public class TestExtension implements BurpExtension { private MontoyaApi api; private Http http; @Override public void initialize(MontoyaApi api) { this.api = api; api.extension().setName("Test Extension"); http = api.http(); http.registerHttpHandler(hh(api)); } public HttpHandler hh(MontoyaApi api) { return new HttpHandler() { @Override public RequestToBeSentAction handleHttpRequestToBeSent(HttpRequestToBeSent hrtbs) { if (api.scope().isInScope(hrtbs.url())) { String body = hrtbs.body().toString(); System.out.println(body); } return RequestToBeSentAction.continueWith(hrtbs); } @Override public ResponseReceivedAction handleHttpResponseReceived(HttpResponseReceived hrr) { return ResponseReceivedAction.continueWith(hrr); } }; } }

Even your own examples don't work, giving the same error. I used these files: https://github.com/PortSwigger/burp-extensions-montoya-api-examples/tree/main/httphandler/src/main/java/example/httphandler Everything compiles fine, but when I load the extension, I get those errors.

Hi Are you using our latest Early Adopter release of Burp (2023.1.1)? The Montoya API v1.0.0 is compatible with versions of Burp v2023.1 onwards.

I guess that was it, I'm still on the standard release. Might I suggest you mention that in your official documentation: https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/desktop/extensions/creating That says to use "LATEST" which is v1.0.0.

Actually I just changed to the 0.10.1 API and I'm encountering the same error.

Could you drop us an email at support@portswigger.net with your code so we can investigate this further, please? Alternatively, if you're already hosting this on GitHub, just drop us a link.

It looks like something weird was going on with Maven. Recreated everything from scratch and it's working now. No idea what was going on before. Thanks for following up. I would still suggest mentioning on the create extensions page that 1.0 only works with EA releases right now. The "Montoya API GitHub repository" link on that page also goes to a 404, just FYI.

Glad to hear it's working for you now! Thanks for letting us know about the dead link! We'll get this fixed. The links in the sidebar should be up-to-date with the latest repository links.
