Overhaul of community website

Added by Frédéric ESNAULT about 5 years ago

The community web site around Improve Foundations is today a result of a complete overhaul. It is now an integrated forge based on the following tools :
  • Redmine (embedding Apache, MySQL, Ruby On Rails, Subversion, Git)
  • Maven
  • Hudson
  • Sonar
  • Nexus
  • Tomcat
  • Eclipse
The aim of this set of tools is primarily to organize the collaborative work and continuous integration on the Improve Foundations project. It is also the realization of the community of users who can access all contents and services, especially
  • Download the executable and source code
  • Download documents and read addons on the wiki
  • Directly access to the javadoc
  • Participate to the discussion forums
  • Get support through the bug trackers
  • Participate to the roadmap
  • Install the tools via the update site for Eclipse
  • Automatically download artifacts from our repository for Maven

This site, now active on the Improve Foundations project, will grow in the near future with more content in English language and will soon host other open source projects such as Struts Layout and Rialto.
