New Feature Highlights – The CloudForge Control Panel

With the release of CloudForge, there are several new features available to simplify project administration and increase efficiency; features such as email invitations, project search, multi-service provisioning, and the Control Panel. Today I wanted to talk about CloudForge’s new Control Panel. Residing near the top of CloudForge’s Dashboard, the control panel is one of the first things you see when you log into CloudForge. In fact, once you have familiarized yourself with CloudForge via the Startup Guide and checked your usage quotas you can hide those elements, giving the Control Panel center stage on your Dashboard; exactly where it belongs. …

Don’t branch one off the other, lest plans change, release schedules diverge, and you suddenly have to disentangle them. Right? You knew that. I knew that. Everyone knows that. You know where this is going. <Insert favorite snarky gallows-humor quip> The Problem — With Pictures During development of our new CloudForge product, we also developed an API for our partners to use to …

Walk-through: Connecting Eclipse to TeamForge Project

Hi, Folks. Today I thought I would walk through the necessary steps to configure the CollabNet Desktop Client for Eclipse and connect it to a TeamForge Project running on CloudForge. This blog post should apply to Eclipse and other tools written on the Eclipse platform. I’m using the “Indigo” 64-bit build of Eclipse on OS-X but I have followed the same steps with similar success with VMWare’s SpringSource on OS-X and Eclipse on Windows 7. I’ll assume you have a working copy of Eclipse for this walk-through and a passable knowledge of how to use it. To complement its incredible …

Announcing CloudForge – CollabNet’s new development PaaS

Enterprise Cloud Development: Beyond Shadow IT

Hosted version control providers have been around as long as Subversion and Git. CollabNet released the first version of Subversion in 2000 while Git first appeared in 2005. CollabNet’s Codesion (nee CVSDude) started out as a server in a bedroom in 2002 and weren’t the first or only kids on the block. Today, a quick Google search for “hosted version control” yields over 29 million results. Obviously, there aren’t 29 million providers out there but it is a topic of much discussion and debate.   To date, most of the users of cloud-based version control have had little or no …
