News: Projectivity 3.0 has been released and is now Open Source

  1. Projectivity 3.0 is an open-source enterprise management platform that integrates unique tools for: Projectivity 3.0 is free to download, use and redistribute under the terms of GPLv3 (see http://www.projectivity.biz).
  2. Apologies to Projectivity 3.0 as this is a general complaint. Has the ServerSide just become an advertising channel? The majority of posts are for random commercial software. I'm sure there are people that are interested in this kind of thing but it is not the reason that I visit the Serverside. Regarding Productivity 3. I recommend making the demo a little easier to get into.
  3. I completely agree that server side is loosing their focus and now it's just a plateform to create propaganda for any and every product. Somebody need to look into it otherwise people will stop visiting this site
  4. Good morning, Thanks to both of you for your comments. We are in a constant process of evolving TheServerSide to better meet our readers needs and constantly experiment with the balance of postings based on reader feedback. We are not striving to become an advertising channel for anyone by any means; the various editors have different perceptions about what an important topic is based on the comments posted (e.g. like this one) and feedback that we get from the community. From blogs to articles from IBM Developer Works to original pieces written by members of our community, we're working toward keeping you informed in all the areas that may concern all of you. Do you have suggestions about how you would like to see our commercial products coverage change? Please let us know! Thanks and cheers, Eugene Ciurana Contributing Editor TheServerSide.com
  5. Hi guys - Thanks for the feedback. I'm not trying to create propaganda, just feeling my way through what might be relevant news to the community. I do edit these to remove the normal press release stuff. In the future, with commercial releases, I'll post them over in the Industry News forum.

    Hiya, My suggestion would be to put up a link on the front page to discuss so we don't clutter up Projectivity 3.0's 15 minutes. If it doesn't happen, then my recommendation would be to pick the kinds of stuff that gets posted on the "Blogs" section of the serverside as it matches far more closely with my expection of what should be on the front page.
  7. Don't limit your content[ Go to top ]

    I'm sure there are other like me who want to know what's going on in both the open source world, as well as, int the proprietary solution world. Maybe a categorization capability that members could turn on/off in the profile would be pertinant. :-)

    Yeah. I pretty much only come to the front page. If it isn't there ... . To those who are complaining I suggest that you become part of the solution and submit some non-product announcement news. Peter, no matter what you do, people will complain. This is the news section and product announcements are news.

    Hi Mark! That's one of the interesting shifts we've seen in the last year or so: the number of press releases that we get vs. the number good submissions. Peter, I, and the rest of the editors have some hard days trying to winnow the good from the stuff that gets submitted. What do you think would be a good way to encourage more people to submit stories? Shall we spend more time trawling blogs? Are we doing enough feature articles? Thanks!

  10. This seem like a very interesting FOSS project, and compared to other FOSS project management offerings, this seems to be by far the most complete. I have the following questions thought: 1. Why JBoss only? at least where I work we cannot afford, (or dont want to) worry about yest another Application Server, I think you should consider adding Glassfish support, Glassfish is gainning trumendous popularity and being a SUN product, its easier to push it inside FOSS unfriendly organizations 2. Since this is based on Java and J2EE technologies, why not also support SQL 2005 (others I can assume could ask for oracle or db2 support), but for me I just wonder about SQL 2005 3. User authentication, i search the docs quickly and didnt find what i was looking for, do you have LDAP support? The Jboss thingie, I can try to over come, the SQL thingie no chance in hell, LDAP would be really ... really ... really nice to have ... really nice! Users login in with their NT account is they way they like it!
  11. 1. Application Server. Projectivity is a pure JEE application but on few very specific points where it uses JBoss specific features. It would be quite easy to port it to Glassfish. However the main problem is about testing it. It would get quite difficult to carry on testing on two different AS. 2. Data Base. Again the pure JEE implementation makes possible to use a different DBMS. We never tried SQL 2005. Could do try it and report back to projectivity forum? 3. User Authentication. PY version 3.0 does not provide such feature out of the box. To my knowledge it should be quite easy to implement this. I copied your post under the "Feedback and Suggestions" Projectivity forum to allow further discussion and eventually include your points in the future developments. You suggestions were very much appreciated.
