Eclipse access to Team Foundation Server

Hi all!

Actually I was working to give a solution in order to integrate Eclipse (opensource development enviroment) into Team Foundation Server. There is a commercial solution in order to achieve that, the company name is TeamPrise.

The focus of the Teamprise Client Suite 2.0 release is to provide full support for the work item tracking features of Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server.  Using Teamprise 2.0, users will be able to perform the following operations:

  • Create new work items, such as bugs or tasks
  • Edit existing work items
  • Run work item queries stored on the Team Foundation Server
  • Quick keyword search for particular work items
  • Associate work items with source control check in operations

Teamprise 2.0 also completes its support for the source control features of Team Foundation Server by implementing the following operations:

  • Branch and Merge
  • Label
  • Shelve and Unshelve

Finally, this release adds support for the Team Explorer view of Visual Studio 2005, giving users full access to the Team Foundation Server repository, including:

  • Work Items
  • Documents
  • Reports
  • Source Control

The Teamprise applications require:

  • Team Foundation Server 1.0
  • Java 1.4 or newer
  • The Teamprise Plugin for Eclipse requires Eclipse 3.0-based IDE or newer  

Then next screenshots show how it works in real live!!!

Also you can find information about the Eclipse integration in Team Foundation Server in the next WebCast, I found very interesting this WebCast, because of the real integration, and the low TCO tool. WebCast: Eclipse Integration with Team Foundation Server

  1. A kettő nem zárja ki egymást, ennek egy jó példája taláható itt . A Teamprise eszközeivel Eclipse alól

  2. This is great news. Things like that can really give new meaning to TFS. However the plugin is too expensive for a free IDE like Eclipse. Don’t you think?

    Hi Alberto, long time since last time I met you :o)

    I have been taking a look at it in TechEd, and also a little bit at home. And it’s really interesting option for Eclipse, and also for non windows environment (it works in Linux and Mac). As it has some interesting features like search and so on.

    Teamprise  sucks, I have evaluated Teamprise and very disappointed with it performance. While basic features of like check-in, check-out, labeling works fine, but any attempt to work on "Work Items" causes eclipse to hang.  . Good think is Teamprise guys admit their product has performance issue. Hopefully they will fix this problem in next release.
