Subject XBridgeNG - New Ant related project
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2008 12:32:53 GMT
Hi,
 
This is an information about a new Apache Ant related open source
project. It would be nice if it could be added to projects.xml (see
patch below).
 
Project name: 
XMLBridge Next Generation (XBridgeNG)
 
Project short summary:
XML Bridge Next Generation (XBridgeNG) is an item/ ticket data exchange
format along with an execution runtime based on Apache Ant. It allows
you to set up integrations between various tools like Serena TeamTrack,
HP QualityCenter, Perforce and many more. Those Ant Tasks can be used
standalone too.
 
Project details:
XBridgeNG has three aspects: 
It defines an XML format that can be used to describe field based
records (items), e.g. tickets from a bug tracker. It also defines a way
to describe relationships between these items and associations between
items and other objects (e.g. file attachments). 
It includes several adapters for other software products to enable them
to export and import data that is written in the xml format described
above. Therefore XBridgeNG acts as a bridge between different tools
(currently there are adapters available for QualityCenter, TeamTrack,
Perforce, ...). These adapters are written in Java and are wrappers to
the proprietary APIs of the tools. XBridgeNG uses Apache Ant as an
execution engine. The Apache Ant build file describes the flow of data
between the different tools for XBridgeNG. Serial, parallel and n-to-n
synchronization of data is possible using regular Apache Ant build file
syntax along with the XBridgeNG adapters. While "modern" technologies
like web services are a good approach to building software integrations
, it is often easier to set up a synchronization based on plain flat xml
files (offline use, transport through firewalls, different networks,
...). XBridgeNG is not an integration server.

Thank you.
