Mylar has two distinct parts: a task-focused interaction and a task management
XPlanner is an open source tool for project planning according to the extreme
programming methodology (XP) and is reasonably flexible to adapt for other
agile approaches such as Scrum.
This session consists of two parts:
The first part will walk through the process of creating a Mylar repository
connector for XPlanner using the SOAP interface along with all the supporting
pieces such as validation, queries for Iterations, User Stories and Tasks
The second part will walk through the process of using Mylar, XPlanner
connector and XPlanner to demonstrate Scrum in action covering project,
successive iterations, creation and use of user stories and tasks both in and
out of the IDE.
The presenters are senior staff of the JBuilder development team with a number
of years of experience in various environments and processes and will share
valuable insights they have gained in using Scrum internally using XPlanner
