Beyond Mylyn, leverage the data of your IDE
Over the last few years, with the rise of application lifecycle management tools, your IDE became a technical data powerhouse. Within the development team, developers are manipulating a broad range of data thanks to dedicated tools. Ranging from the PDE to EGit and including Mylyn Tasks, Mylyn Build, m2clipse and even the platform itself, we have now access to countless of tools just a click away.
Your IDE is now a maze of tools that are sometime communicating with each others yet you cannot easily access or manipulate the data that they are creating.
Presented for the first time, Ariadne is a brand new Eclipse-based tool built to cut through the maze by leveraging the data collected by your IDE. With those data, Ariadne can provide you with a bird eye view of your IDE to monitor your project. Contrary to existing tools like Checkstyle or Sonar, Ariadne does not consider that a project is limited to its code and it can let you define cross concern requirements to help you keep your project in line.
Finally, with its data-driven approach, you will see how Ariadne can help you measure the impact of the changes that you want to realize on your project.
During 25 minutes, you will see how Ariadne can use the daily work of an Eclipse committer to help the management of an Eclipse project.
