Anthill is a tool that ensures a controlled build process and promotes the sharing of knowledge within an organization. Anthill performs a checkout from the source repository of the latest version of a project before every build and tags the repository with a unique build number after every build. It supports many reposistory adapters including: CVS (Concurrent Versions System), Visual Source Safe, Perforce, PVCS, StarTeam, MKSIntegrity, and FileSystem. Anthill also automatically updates a project intranet site with artifacts from the latest build. Anthill is an extension to the Apache-Ant project and is compatible with version 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 of Ant.
AnthillPro is a build management and lifecycle automation server for the enterprise that makes the build and release process easy and efficient. As a continuous integration server, it can produce a new build for every developer check-in. The entire team can be alerted to problems via email or instant message. Each build can then be promoted to higher statuses, or deployed to various servers and environments using your scripts. At every step, AnthillPro records who did what to keep your auditors happy.
Antmod is a build management, release management, and repository management tool. Its implementation is an Ant-based extensible engine for retrieving, versioning, building, and deploying code to and from Subversion or CVS. It standardizes build files for Java projects and provides build plugins for various tasks. It also standardizes tagging and branching for both CVS and Subversion, and its module and repository management can also be used for non-Java projects. It greatly speeds up Java software development, promotes reuse of Java software, and standardizes the build-test- release cycle.
Aquamacs is a Mac-like version of the powerful Emacs text editor that runs as a standard OS X application. It features extensive customization that enables it to conform better with Apple's standard Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) than standard versions of the editor do. It provides a more Mac-like user experience than Carbon Emacs.
FishEye opens your source code repository to help you understand your code and keep tabs on the people who write it. It lets you view user activity, track code changes, and search and navigate through your repository from any Web browser. Nearly everything in your repository has its own URL, down to every single line of code for every revision. Files, branches, repositories, projects, and even people have their own activity stream. FishEye provides easy navigation, powerful search, historical reporting, configurable file annotation and diff views, changeset analysis, RSS feeds, and integration with JIRA, Crucible, Bamboo, Eclipse, and IntelliJ IDEA. FishEye works with Subversion, CVS, Perforce, Git or Mercurial.
CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions of files (usually source code), keep a log of who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS. Unlike the simpler systems, CVS does not just operate on one file at a time or one directory at a time, but operates on hierarchical collections of directories consisting of version controlled files. CVS helps to manage releases and to control the concurrent editing of source files among multiple authors. CVS allows triggers to enable/log/control various operations and works well over a wide area network.
The CVS Accesslist Patch is a safe way to keep users accessing only the modules you specify. It works simply: A person is only able to perform CVS operations if he has a copy of the original module on his machine. It has a configuration file under the CVSROOT tree; in this file, you specify which user will be able to access the modules in your repository.
