CA Agile Central's Eclipse Plugin provides CA Agile Central artifacts within the Eclipse interface to view or update CA Agile Central stories, tasks, and defects along with viewing and sharing the context of those artifacts through the Mylyn framework. It provides one-stop access to information in CA Agile Central without having to leave the Eclipse IDE.
The software requirements are as follows:
- Eclipse 3.4 or higher
- Mylyn 3.12 or higher
From the Mylyn website:
Mylyn is the task-focused UI for Eclipse that reduces information overload and makes multi-tasking easy. It does this by making tasks a first-class part of Eclipse. Once your tasks are integrated, Mylyn monitors your work activity to identify information relevant to the task-at-hand, and uses this task context to focus the Eclipse UI on the interesting information, hide the uninteresting, and automatically find what is related.
See the Eclipse Installation & User Guide for information on installing, configuring, and using the connector.
