News: Clarity version 1.4, team collaboration application, has been released
Clarity 1.4 is a commercial team collaboration system which integrates different services used by software developers and managers in one universal web-based solution. It helps to automate many everyday tasks in several areas of software development such as project management, issue/bug tracking, version controlling, documentation (based on wiki) and customer support. Clarity will be very useful for any kind of developer teams: independent software vendors, shareware authors, outsourcing companies, etc. Clarity is written on Java so it can be installed on most operating systems and hardware platforms. You can run it as separate service on your personal computer or remote dedicated server or you can setup it as a web application in some J2EE servlet container (Apache Tomcat, IBM WebSphere, etc). Clarity is sold on a user-license model: a one-user license is $99 USD, a two-user license is $169 USD, a five-user license is $399 USD, and a ten-user license is $699 USD. To learn more about this product and to download trial version please visit the Clarity home page at http://devtools.korzh.com/clarity/ [Editor's note: the demo is very responsive, but the demonstration account uses Russian - or so it seems. Your Humble Editor can't read (or properly detect) Russian. This isn't a critique of what looks to be a useful product, but just a warning that I couldn't verify that it does everything as described.]

- Sure looks a lot like JIRA by Mike Bosch on November 07 2006 21:09 EST
Well, the problem with online demos is that you usually have admin access to the application, and so you can change almost anything, including the language of the application. But, it's also easy to switch back to english, if you know russian (or if you look at the actual link URLs which are usually in english, like http://clarity.korzh.com/demo/tracker/PreferencesAction.form, and find the most likely dropdown box that controls the language of the application) The site is in english now, btw. At least until someone else changes it back to russian, that is.
Maybe it's just me but this feels a LOT like JIRA. And the Wiki markup page looks a lot like the wiki markup in Confluence. Albeit, a less capable version but things still look surprisingly similar. I suppose imitation is the sincerest form of flattery for the folks at Atlassian.
Many products in this area feels like a copy of another product. Maybe because the feature scope is quite limited and you cannot do one "simple" thing in so many ways? But, Clarity has apparently borrowed a lot from Jira. I'm not sure you will find imitations of Jira in VisionProject though... :-) /Tommy VisionProject Issue tracking and project management made easy
Pretty exposed I would say, though rather nice... You might want to configure tomcat a little more restrictive. check these links.. http://demo.visionproject.se/Copy%20%282%29%20of%20visionproject.log http://demo.visionproject.se/
