Re: Subversion and JIRA integration

Hi Ragu,

Your question is sort of a tricky one. Well, at least parts of it are. But
here's an attempt at an answer.

Yes, but it depends on your requirements, and how many development
resources you're willing to throw at it, if a commercial vendor doesn't
provide it already.

Subversion is a version control tool, not a configuration management tool.
While it may certainly be possible to use Subversion in the manner implied,
the definition of "configuration management" may lead to requirements that
Subversion is less than ideal for.

As I understand it, JIRA includes an extension API. It certainly should be
possible to extend JIRA to get more detailed information about links into
Subversion, without, as you indicate "hyperlinking".

There exist integrations into JIRA already for tighter coupling with
Subversion, so you could start with those, to see if any of those meet your
requirements.

It is left to one's imagination. Both have APIs, so it is possible to add
tighter integration to both. For details of how to integrate from
Subversion's perspective, check out the "hook" documentation:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.reposadmin.create.html#svn.reposadmin.hooks

Atlassian definitely offers APIs from the JIRA side:

This mailing list isn't going to be a good source of information about
that. And that assumes that you can find an existing commercial vendor of
extension(s) that meet your needs.
