CloudForge for Microsoft – Connecting Visual Studio to SVN

A few months ago I wrote a blog detailing how to connect Eclipse to a TeamForge Project in CloudForge. I wanted to follow-up that post with an analogous walk-through with Visual Studio and CloudForge. For the purpose of this blog I am using Visual Studio 2010 but the same steps apply to Visual Studio 2008 as well. This will be a three-part blog. The first part will cover creating a new project in CloudForge and uploading source code into a centralized Subversion repository. The second part will cover integrating issue tracking and agile project management with TeamForge into our Visual …

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.

Scripting TeamForge Connector Server (CCF 2.0) REST API for fun and profit

One major feedback we received on CCF 1.x was that our customers really liked its bidirectional artifact synching functionality to HP ALM/Quality and Scrumworks Pro but did not like the fact that they could only control its behavior from a locally installed Eclipse client. As part of CollabNet’s Connect Initiative, we started over with TeamForge Connector Server 2.0 (aka CCF 2.0) and exposed all its functionality over a REST API. Now, there is no need a locally running Eclipse any more and all functionality can be accessed remotely. In fact, all our remote clients (Windows Desktop and Eclipse Desktop) make …

Eclipse Marketplace passed 1 million installations

Last count was at 1,033,450. The marketplace now features an impressive list of 1,200+ plug-ins. #1 download (and favorite) is Subclipse, developed by CollabNet. Glad to see the strong momentum behind Subversion (and a bit proud too). The Eclipse plugin is actually quite easy to use, I’d encourage you to check it out. And when at it, also see the Eclipse desktop, and the related training video.

Team Synchronization with Eclipse and Subversion

Eclipse is a popular IDE initially created for Java, but which now has specific builds for most popular languages including, C, C++, PHP, etc. This article discusses how you can use Eclipse with Subversion. Background In order to safeguard your precious source code, the old approach of simply cracking open Eclipse and starting coding, while saving everything to your local hard disk, just doesn’t cut it in today’s world. What happens if you break your build, your hard disk crashes, or you want to collaborate with two or more developers on the same project? You never need to worry about these …
