Mergere Upgrades Maestro To Extend Enterprise Adoption Of Open Source Build Platform

Provides Server-Based Build Automation For Integrated Testing, Packaging And Reporting Capabilities Throughout Development Proce

Mergere, an open source software lifecycle management company, announced upgrades to Mergere Maestro, an enterprise open source software engineering platform that provides server-based build automation for integrated testing, packaging and reporting capabilities throughout the development process. The latest version of the Apache License 2.0 open source distribution, Mergere Maestro 1.1, features desktop tooling, artifact repository management and security enhancements to support today’s complex, component-based engineering requirements.

Mergere Maestro provides real-time project transparency and a comprehensive taxonomy of any projects’ software assets to streamline and optimize the software development lifecycle for today’s heterogeneous and globally distributed development teams. Mergere Maestro’s Project Server provides IT teams with a platform to catalog, manage and integrate existing internal, proprietary and open source code and a continuous integration and dependency management framework to then enable companies to reuse the available component assets in their enterprise software portfolio.

Designed to offer server-based automation and management capabilities to enterprise application projects, while supporting improved client-side tooling at the developer desktop, Mergere Maestro 1.1 now features:

*Artifact Administration - An Artifact Repository Manager, based on Apache Archiva, that provides secure server administration for the storage, access, querying and cataloging of all of an enterprises’ project artifacts.

*Improved Security - Enhanced user and user group management, security, and error-handling for centralized, aggregated build automation in Mergere Maestro’s Continuous Integration Server, based on Apache Continuum, for more effective project team and corporate use.

*Tooling for Ease-of-Use - Eclipse and NetBeans IDE plug-ins to enable developers to work in their preferred development environment for better workflow and usability.
A Build Conversion Wizard that allows enterprises to map existing build scripts and components from Ant and Maven 1.x, eliminating the complexity of transitioning existing builds to Mergere Maestro’s Developer Client, based on Apache Maven 2.0.

“As companies continue to integrate open source technology into their enterprise IT software portfolio, development teams are looking for both the client-side tooling and server-based platform to manage their ‘mixed source’ environment and service-based infrastructure,” said Winston Damarillo, CEO of Mergere. “After collaborating closely with our customers, we have added significant upgrades to Mergere Maestro that provide enterprises with greater control and management over Java-based projects to help streamline today’s mission-critical initiatives, like SOA, and increase the overall release velocity, quality and reproducibility of their applications.”
