Jira Dashboard is a set of Eclipse plugins that provide access to a remote Jira installation from inside the IDE.

Although the main focus of this project is the creation of Eclipse plugins it is possible to re-use the core services to create plugins for other IDEs.

Check out the screenshots for more detail.

The current release of Jira Dashboard is 0.9.2. See the change log for a list of what has changed

Mission

This project aims to provide a means for developers to access and modify information in a Jira installation from within their IDE without interrupting their day-to-day workflow. The short term plan of the project is to mimick the functinality provided in the standard Web based Jira Dashboard. This does not preclude us from adding new features if they are desirable.

Currently multiple technologies are required to fully view and manipulate a Jira installation. The long term goal of this project is to create a set of abstract service to make communication with a Jira server isntance easier.

As well as defining the core services it is withing the scope of this project to use these services to integrate Jira into other IDEs. If there is enough interest sub-projects will be formed to implement this plan.
