Re: [skalli-dev] Assessing Skalli for the requirements of the codecentric AG

Hi Simon,

thank you for your quick answer. I'll setup Skalli and give it a try once I get some time off.

So far it seams that some use-cases are already covered and some present major obstacles (JIRA). Jenkins support seems to be doable considering their web-service API and CLI [1, 2]. Does Skalli already include support for it in a way?

Regarding a Sonar integration, the web-service API seems extensive and the Jenkins / Maven plug-ins show that an integration should be possible.

Thanks again,

Hi Ben,

Great to hear you're interested in the Skalli project. Skalli indeed already
covers the most important use-case with Git/Gerrit, i.e. setting up a new
project. For that, there also is a group in Gerrit created, that will have the
Project committers assigned initially. However, what we currently still missing
is an update/sync of these groups of later on the project members change. This
requires some extension of the Gerrit API, that have not been implemented yet.
With Jira, the API looks worse. There we are struggling with the project
creation, still looking for a way to realize that.

For Skalli, we only recently got all our IP related stuff approved at Eclipse,
so we now work on getting the build up and running and providing some "ready to
use" download. While it's not available yet, there is a little tweaking required
in order to run it from the IDE. You find the necessary steps in our contributor
guide: Also, we are happy to
help you out anytime and get you up to speed - don't hesitate to ask in this
mailing list or contact any of us directly.

Talking about contributions: As it's still a young project, there of course is
not yet everything covered. We are happy of course to accept any contribution of
stuff you think is missing.

    Hi everybody,

    my name is Ben Ripkens and I'm currently looking into the Skalli project as
    part of my bachelor thesis (actually preliminary research). I'll be writing
    my bachelor thesis with support of the codecentric AG which is interested in
    tool support for automatic setup and configuration of software development

    I have been in contact with Jochen Hiller from Deutsche Telekom AG who
    pointed me towards the Skalli project. So far it seems that Skalli supports
    some of the necessary functionality for the codecentric AG. I was hoping you
    could help me answer some of my questions regarding the Skalli project so
    that I can assess whether it would be a proper choice for the codecentric AG.

    Jochen Hiller presented Git, Gerrit and Jenkins support during his talk on
    the "Technology meets Talent" day 2011 in Darmstadt (DE). What I didn't see
    though was in how far Skalli is able to control and configure these
    applications. For instance, when you create a new project in Skalli, does it
    also create a new Git repository and configure user access rights?

    Does Skalli support JIRA and/or Confluence in any way? It would be nice if
    it could create a new project in JIRA and configure the users which require
    access to it.

    I would greatly appreciate any help in assessing the Skalli project for the
    codecentric AG .
