SVN Edge 5.0 Released – with Java 8 Support

I am pleased to announce the release and general availability of SVN Edge 5.0. Downloads for Windows, Linux and Solaris are available now. If you already have SVN Edge installed, you can update from within the application itself. Windows users should read on though. The driver for this release was support for Java 8. Normally, new releases of Java are not that big a deal because Java has excellent backwards compatibility and code written and compiled for older versions generally works the same on newer versions. I’ve been working with Java since 1.1 and that has always been my experience. …

Bulletproof, Military Grade Security – Visualizing the Access Control Mechanisms of Your SCM Solution

Who-can-access-What

Why visualize? Access control is probably not the most sexy or intuitive part of any SCM (source code management) solution. However, understanding how access control mechanisms work is crucial for any enterprise that has to protect its intellectual property. What makes things tricky is that any SCM solution on the planet claims to have proper, powerful, “military grade”, “bulletproof” access controls in place. Looking at the specifics, there are huge differences that can give you a competitive business advantage (or disadvantage). A framework that helps you to visualize the differences in the fine print is a way better approach to …

Enterprise Open Source Git and ALM Merging – Share Your Views with Our Git Survey

We’ve all gone to Target to buy something cheap, right?  Pretty traditional – lots of racks of clothes and cashiers, right?  Well, Target, like the rest of the world, is changing.  Last month, they acquired a Pittsburgh software company in order to bring “an Amazon-like shopping experience” to in-store customers. The product uses mobile technology, location data, and machine learning to connect a retailer’s app to the in-store shopping experience, and it uses the store’s layout and product locations to deliver customized recommendations and messaging to customers. Has Target shifted from a retail company to a software company? Absolutely. Gone …

Effective SCM Strategy for the Modern Enterprise

Recently CollabNet published the new whitepaper “Effective SCM Strategy for the Modern Enterprise“, which discusses issues that large companies face when working on their Software Delivery Lifecycle (SDLC) infrastructure. While understanding the requirements for repository management is a major part an enterprise IT strategy, when we talked to our customers and prospects, we noticed an interesting (and somewhat troublesome) trend in how people view SCM technology. The key problem we were seeing is that software configuration management (SCM) is typically viewed as a merely technical issue. Business stakeholders often completely rely on the technical experts – users of the SCM …

Unexpected Pitfalls of CI/CD Automation: What Your PCI-DSS Guy Will Not Tell You, Part 2

As I promised in my last blog post, I would like to continue the topic of PCI-DSS 3.0, which has been in effect since January 2014. As the January 2015 deadline for meeting the 3.0 requirements rapidly approaches, many companies are working to address areas of the standard that were somewhat neglected in the 2.0 version, such as development tools and processes. It is important to continue developing a better understanding of the standard and its effect on use of development technologies in highly regulated industries. Let’s take a closer look at additional PCI-DSS 3.0 requirements. In my last blog …

It is the time of the year when consumers begin to open their wallets. Retail and credit card processing industries are busily preparing their systems to handle the projected volume of credit card transactions leading up to Black Friday through the New Year.  It is no wonder IT folks are now revisiting their compliance with the infamous PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) to ensure that their companies develop and store code dealing with credit cards in a secure way. If you are not familiar with PCI-DSS, in a nutshell, is a rigorous set of standards for protecting cardholder …

CloudForge’s Improved Subversion Service

The Backstory Since joining the CloudForge Development team within CollabNet nearly a year ago, several of my colleagues and I have been primarily focused on delivering improvements to the scalability and reliability of the CloudForge improved Subversion service.  With tens of terabytes of live Subversion repository data being generated and used by tens of thousands of our customers, even the smallest improvements we make to the service have a pretty big impact. CloudForge was built on a strong Subversion architecture, but over the years the ever-growing number of customers put a strain on the platform.  In the original architecture, customers (organizations) were …
