Day 2007 Partner Showcase
recognizes companies that have made significant contributions to the
NetBeans Project through its Partner Program
and with speaking invitations to NetBeans Day. Attend these Partner
sessions that showcase exciting and new plug-ins, and discover ways
to extend and get
the most out of the NetBeans IDE!
What is your role at Intland Software?
I'm the co-founder and CEO.
As a partner, how has your company contributed to the NetBeans
NetBeans is extended with an ALM (Application Life Cycle) and
collaboration module. This project is a joint effort together with the
USDA and Sun teams. Our extension integrates NetBeans developers into
collaborative teams, and provides ALM access to the NetBeans IDE
community. With the new ALM module you get project, task, change and
build management integrated into NetBeans. Our system enables social
networking for NetBeans users with rich collaborative features such as
forum, wiki, document management, artifact associations and role/group
Tell us about your NetBeans Day Presentation.
The session will show how developers and project managers can use
NetBeans together with the ALM and collaboration module for:
-Project, task and bug management
-Change management with Subversion
-Collaboration with integrated - wiki, forum and document management
The session will also show how to get the full traceability of all
project artifacts “from the requirement to the source code”.
What's the top point that developers should know about your session?
NetBeans is extended with an ALM and a collaboration module and its
change management is well integrated to Subversion. There is a free
15-user version downloadable from http://www.intland.com/products/cb-download.html
What are the benefits to the community?
NetBeans enables the highest productivity in the Individual, but the
Individual is disconnected from his team, except via single access to
the SCM system. The NetBeans ALM and collaboration module bring ALM,
project management and communication into the NetBeans IDE.
The NetBeans ALM and collaboration module is open-source, GPL-licensed,
and a 15-user CodeBeamer server—enabling the ALM and collaboration
functionality—is available to download for
Free open-source community portals powered by CodeBeamer, such as
JavaForge.com, can be accessed directly from the NetBeans IDE. The ALM
and collaboration module provides project, requirement, task, build and
change management functionality together with collaboration features
such as wiki, forum and document management to the community.
What is the main message you want a developer to get after
attending your session?
We will talk about our experience extending NetBeans with the ALM and
collaboration module and we will show how they can use it. (This means
if they want to use a collaboration platform with a tight integration
into a Java IDE they do not have to wait until Jazz will arrive because
NetBeans has it already.)
Why did you submit your session to be presented at NetBeans Day?
The need for globally distributed software development solutions is
growing rapidly and we have the first ALM and collaboration module for
NetBeans. We will show how the community can profit on this, and we
hope that we gain new contributors from our efforts.
What features do you enjoy working with in NetBeans?
We like the API the modularity and easy deployment.
How does working in Java compare with other technologies?
We don’t know any better technology today.
Are there any other points you would like to highlight in this
We have the most innovative collaboration platform for developers
available on the market.
And the reasons are:
-We were the first real Java-based collaboration platform with ALM
-We were the first platform to support Subversion
-We are the first to have a NetBeans ALM module
-We already support Groovy as scripting language
