Mylyn with XPlanner

Filed under: General — Bharat Kondeti @ 8:38 pm

For some weird reason we use XPlanner for tracking our project. We track all of our Stories and Tasks using this tool. Anyways I found out that we can integrate Mylyn with XPlanner and manage all the tasks from Eclipse. It was pretty easy to integrate

I downloaded Mylyn and XPlanner connector from following update sites

Mylyn – http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/e3.4

Xplanner Connector from Mylyn incubator site – http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/incubator/

I selected only Mylyn Connector: XPlanner

Once installed go to Window -> Show View Other -> Task Repositories and create a new Task repository. It will ask for XPlanner server URL (http://xxxxxxx.com:7070), a name for the repository, username and password. Once connected to the repository we can browse stories, tasks and add it to the Task List.

To open Task List click Window -> Show View Other -> Task List.
rightclick -> New -> Query to pull up stories and tasks. We can add, modify tasks from this view.

Mylyn is a very powerful tool and now we can use it with XPlanner seamlessly
