New Release of SmartBear Collaborator Increases Integration with Third Party Tools

Date 2015/2/12 9:19:20 | Topic: Product News

SmartBear Softwarehas made two major enhancements to Collaborator, the only tool available that allows peer review of code, user stories, test plans, Excel files and other documentation. The new JSON API functionality allows integrations with other products including bug-tracking (JIRA), continuous integration (Jenkins), IDE, SCM and other third party tools. Collaborator 9.0 also now allows the ability to create a review from within Eclipse with Git as the SCM.
“The new JSON API provides Collaborator 9.0 with the foundation needed to drive integrations for both our customers and partners, ensuring improved performance with our existing integrations and with third party tools in the future,” said Justin Collier, Product Owner, Collaborator at SmartBear. “The Git/Eclipse plug-in allows reviews to be quickly and easily created for the most popular SCM on the planet, while allowing developers to stay in Eclipse to participate in reviews.”

In 2014, Git surpassed SVN as the most widely used SCM. Collaborator always offered a Git integration as well as an Eclipse plug-in but did not support Git/Eclipse together until now. Collaborator 9.0 has also improved file upload performance by as much as 1,000 percent for large reviews.
