Thanks jTrac, You're Doing a Fine Job

I just wanted to give a shout-out to the members of the jTrac project. jTrac is an issue-tracking system which can be installed out of the box as a stand-alone server using Jetty and HSQLDB, or can be installed as a war in an existing server.

jTrac was very easy to install in our existing JBoss instance and required only a few settings and a directory for storing attachments and the application's HSQLDB database files. Once you have it installed and configured, you can create spaces for each of your applications. Each of these spaces can have a set of custom fields as well as a custom set of states and transitions. Write access to each space is limited to only members of that space. In addition you can make transistions dependent on a particular user role within the space.

The application seems to be mature enough to be feature complete, but does still have some minor nice-to-haves (book-markable searches, Eclipse Mylyn integration) and missing ui polish.

Testing Toolbelt: SpringJUnit4ClassRunner

The org.springframework.test.context.junit4.SpringJUnit4ClassRunner class is another implementation of the JUnit TestRunner class which is used to enable various features of Spring for every run of the test class and every test within it. To use the features provided by the SpringJUnit4ClassRunner class, you need to mark the class using the RunWith annotation using SpringJUnit4ClassRunner as its parameter.In addition to the custom test runner, you will want to mark the class with the ContextConfiguration annotation. The ContextConfiguration annotation is used to mark classes which will automatically read a Spring configuration file and use it to create an ApplicationContext. By default, this file located at <package path>/<test class name>-context.xml. Use the locations argument to over-ride.The ApplicationContext used by the Spring-integrated test will only be loaded once for the whole test class. This behavior can be over-ridden by annotating a test method with the Dirti…
