When I started working in the TestLink java api with Daniel Padilla, he mentioned in some of his mails a tool called Jacobe. After I googled for this tool I found it in TIOBE’s website. Jacobe is a tool of TIOBE that beautifies your Java code, according to some rules that you can specify in one configuration file.
This is what Jacobe does, basically.
Jacobe itself is an executable but TIOBE provides an Ant task that lets you call Jacobe from an Ant build file. But wait a minute! What about Maven? Yeah, exactly. Jacobe lacked of Maven support. I talked to the guys from TIOBE and they kindly let me implement a Maven Plugin for Jacobe.
The plugin source code is hosted at SourceForge.net, and you can find a quick Introduction about it in http://maven-jacobe.sourceforge.net/. The maven plugin version 1.0 artifact was released on Wednesday to Sonatype’s release repository and Sonatype already enabled Maven Central Repository synchronization. However it may take some time for them update the repository index.
With the help of Francisco Mancardi I wrote a code that was merged into the TestLink repository trunk. Now you’re going to be able to upload attachments such as, for instance, test evidences to your TestLink :-). I hope you like it.
I decided to contribute with this code because I needed something similar for the TestLink Hudson plug-in. Hopefully the plug-in new version will be released before October.
You can check the full article in TestingExperience site. It is available in PDF format for members, the registration if free though.
If you use Hudson as build trigger, continuous integration system or crontab replacement, you can contribute to Hudson buying from CafePress Hudson Store. I bought a polo shirt few months ago. It was my first acquisition from CafePress and I was worried about quality and the difference in sizes from US and Brazil.
