We are happy to annouce the 2.0 release of codeBeamer Eclipse Studio (CBES). codeBeamer Eclipse Studio takes all your information offline (including source code, version control of any file, and tasks), and enables you to continue your work remotely and securely. It also helps to synchronize with your "web-based data" at a later time.
How does it work? Let’s compare the old and the new ways.
Increased productivity through mobility
The nineties way
- Check out a working copy from Subversion hosted on some corporate server, and create a project in Eclipse.
- Open your browser, navigate to your intranet based task management system, and activate your next set of tasks.
- Stay online, CHAINED to your cubicle.
- Work on the code. Commit to Subversion. Update your tasks in the task management system. (Make sure network connection is fine.)
- Goto 2.
The mobile knowledge-worker way
- Clone a repo from Mercurial with MercurialEclipse’s Clone Wizard, and let it create the corresponding Eclipse project.
- Create a new task query with CBES’s Query Builder, and import your tasks to Mylyn.
- Now you can go offline. Get on the plane, visit your customer, or go to your favourite coffee shop.
- Work on the code as you normally do. Commit your changes to Mercurial. Update your tasks in Mylyn. (You can do all this offline.)
- If still offline, goto 4.
- Online again? Push your outgoing changes to the central Mercurial repository conveniently, using MercurialEclipse’s Synchronization View. In the background, your tasks will be automatically synchronized with the remote task repository.
- Install codeBeamer Eclipse Studio with MercurialEclipse via Eclipse Update quickly and easily.
- Visit the codeBeamer Eclipse Studio project homepage to learn more and see the screenshots.
- Read the codeBeamer Eclipse Studio quick tutorial.
- Tweet us your experiences with CBES. We would be thrilled to hear your stories.
