Tasktop Completes Eclipse Mylyn Integration with VersionOne Agile Enterprise

March 15, 2010

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 15 /PRNewswire/ — Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com), creators of Eclipse Mylyn and the leading provider of task management for application lifecycle management (ALM), and VersionOne (www.versionone.com), a leader in Agile project management tools, today announced the availability of the VersionOne Mylyn Connector. The connector streamlines software development by providing direct access to VersionOne products from within the Eclipse IDE. Together, Tasktop and VersionOne will help developers view and update project artifacts in VersionOne while, simultaneously, providing accurate and up-to-date time tracking and project status visibility for software development teams.

“Tasktop Technologies’ integration with VersionOne provides users with the ability to leverage Mylyn’s task management framework to realign the IDE around tasks assigned to a developer in VersionOne and automatically present the most relevant source code and documentation associated with each task,” said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project. “Developers no longer have to waste time repeatedly searching and scrolling for the information they need to write code, since the IDE shows only what is relevant to the task-at-hand.”

The VersionOne Connector is now included in Tasktop Pro, the enterprise product version of Mylyn. This integration provides VersionOne teams with access to advanced productivity features such as time tracking automation and the ability to link VersionOne stories and defects to dependent artifacts in legacy and open source ALM systems, leveraging the broad ecosystem of compatible Tasktop and Mylyn connectors. Tasktop Pro is also available as a standalone application that provides rich desktop access to stories, defects and tasks in VersionOne for product owners.

“The Tasktop Pro integration provides a new productivity layer that links VersionOne’s project management capabilities with real-time development activity, improving project status visibility for team leads and product owners,” said Robert C. Holler, VersionOne president and CEO. “By leveraging Tasktop’s IDE integration and network of compatible ALM integrations, we’re able to ease developer adoption of VersionOne alongside legacy and open source systems.”

The VersionOne Mylyn Connector is bundled with Tasktop Pro for $99, and a free trial is available from (http://tasktop.com). The Connector is Tasktop Certified and also available for download and installation directly from the Mylyn Connector Discovery listing that is included in eight of nine Eclipse distribution packages.
