  53. 53. Just Eclipse eclipse IDE Eclipse workspace Mylyn Context Mylyn Task 25 25
  54. 54. Just Eclipse eclipse IDE Eclipse workspace Load new task Mylyn Context Mylyn Task 25 25
  55. 55. Just Eclipse eclipse IDE Eclipse workspace Get context for that task Load new task Mylyn Context Mylyn Task 25 25
  56. 56. Load classes, methods for that context Just Eclipse eclipse IDE Eclipse workspace Get context for that task Load new task Mylyn Context Mylyn Task 25 25
  57. 57. Switching tasks switches context By  switching  tasks  we  get   a  different  set  of  open   files,  along  with  the   memory  of  which   methods  we’d  been   working  on 26 26
  58. 58. Sharing Contexts If you create your tasks as JIRA Tasks, and save your Context in the Task, then others eclipse IDE Eclipse can share your Task Context workspace 27 27
  59. 59. Integrating Mylyn With JIRA Instead of creating a task, use a query to get tasks directly from the JIRA repository 28 28

  88. 88. Eclipse – Mylyn - JIRA • Eclipse Galilleo comes pre-installed with Mylyn • To add the JIRA Mylyn connector • Ensure you have the most up to date Mylyn, check for updates • Select Task ʻadd repositoryʼ, choose ʻInstall More Connectorsʼ • Select JIRA from the Mylyn Connector Discovery screen • Follow the install instructions 41 41

  90. 90. Load JIRA context instructions • Assumption: Eclipse-Mylyn-JIRA- • If both users have perforce workspaces, it must be for the same set of files and from the same perforce properly setup starting directory • Eclipse project name, must be the • JIRA connection string, must use same same http: string • Establish a naming convention for potentially ʻsharedʼ Issues in JIRA and Eclipse to facilitate • Mylyn context zip files show the this required name, for debug • Use the ʻenvironmentʼ JIRA field to note the project name and source info • stored in the eclipse workspace • In our example • .metadata/.mylyn/contexts/http<link name plus pid>.zip • demo-sc is our Eclipse project • But it is defined to point to the demo-sc/vodman folder of the p4 client workspace • Source base for the set of files, must be the same 42 42
