For the last days I’ve been looking in to some products that a potential client is using and I have no experience with. There are three development process related products that nicely integrate together:
- Jira – issue tracking and planning
- Confluence – wiki
- Bamboo – continuous build server
As they are commercial and all from the same company (Atlassian) it is no surprise that they integrate very well. Reports from Bamboo and Jira can be published via Confluence so that all essential information can be found in the same place – nice for both management and developers.
It is also possible to use Bamboo as a release management tool, somebody wrote a nice article about it and developed some plugins. This is about a year old, so maybe it is built in by now.
