The product direction for Exadel is to move more and more towards open source. From the beginning, our Exadel Flamingo product has always been open source in the sense of publishing the source code along with the binaries in releases. With Exadel JavaFX Plug-In for Eclipse, we are now moving further to a full open source model that includes opening up the development process and not just the code for each release.
To make the process of moving products to full open source easier, we’ve created a dot-org version of our Web site to host these projects:
Exadel Exadel JavaFX Plug-In for Eclipse is the first project for the new site.
Here’s what it look like now:
As before, people have access to installation files, online documentation, and a forum. However, downloading the installation files from exadel.org doesn’t need user registration, and the forum is now hosted on the site itself. (The old Google Group is still available as an archive for postings.)
There are two new types of project access that we hadn’t opened up before.
Bug and Feature Tracking
We run JIRA for bug and feature tracking. (The JavaFX Plug-In project starts with the newly released 1.2.2 version in the open JIRA.)
Source Code Repository
You can also access the Subversion source code repository either through checking out the files or viewing them through the browser by clicking on the link. In the latter case, you would see this in the browser window.
For either JIRA or Subversion, you can look, but not change anything in the project till you register on the site and have permission assigned.
