Eclipse and Visual Studio Integration Brings SpiraTeam to Your IDE
Inflectra Corporation today announced that it has released Add-Ins for the popular Eclipse and Visual Studio Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) so that developers in languages such as C#, Java and Visual Basic can manage their assigned SpiraTeam requirements, tasks and issues/bugs in one environment.
Such a seamless web-based environment provides a superb interface for business analysts, testers, managers and executives. However, developers responsible for developing the software code typically need to work in powerful IDEs that are appropriate to the type of the software being developed. Therefore to maximize efficiency and improve productivity, developers can now access their SpiraTeam information directly within their existing IDE.
For Visual Studio, there is an Add-In that snaps into the existing Solution Explorer, adding a project explorer that displays the assigned requirements, tasks and incidents. You can open up any of the artifacts in the main viewing pane and act on them accordingly. For Eclipse users, we have used the Mylyn task-focused interface to deliver SpiraTeam information directly into the Mylyn task repository so that using SpiraTeam is as familiar as any other part of the Eclipse environment.
