OpenMake Meister 7.2 Improves Agile Development Through Improved Continuous Integration Builds

OpenMake Meister 7.2 enhances the continuous integration build process for Eclipse developers using Build Mashup technology

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenMake Software, a leading provider of build to release management solutions, today announced new features of its Meister 7.2 product that will enhance the continuous integration process for Eclipse developers. OpenMake Meister 7.2, to be released in the second quarter of 2008, includes the ability to mashup the individual developers Eclipse IDE build with the Continuous Integration build running outside of the Eclipse IDE automatically. This feature prevents builds from breaking when a developer makes changes to the source code that impacts the builds such as refactoring, deleting or adding libraries and classes, changing compile options, updating dependencies, using a different version of a 3rd party library, or adding resource files.

"Coding changes made by the developers inside of the Eclipse IDE frequently impacts the static build scripts running outside of the IDE on the continuous integration server," explains Steve Taylor, CTO, OpenMake Software. "Meister 7.2 provides the ability to automatically re-generate the Continuous Integration build scripts based on the Eclipse IDE project data, keeping the build between the developer's IDE and the Continuous Integration build 100% in sync and eliminating broken builds."

Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation emphasized, "The Eclipse IDE has become widely deployed in IT organizations of Global 2000 companies. As a result, larger applications are being developed using Eclipse, resulting in more complex software builds. Products such as OpenMake Meister address these complexities and improve the developer's experience through specialized Eclipse plug-ins."

In addition to mashing up Eclipse IDE builds to the Continuous Integration Builds, Meister 7.2 provides similar enhancements for the Microsoft development suite supporting cross platform and cross language builds between Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio. Supporting cross language environments simplifies the complexities of enterprise builds where applications written in both Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio share data and dependencies and must be built together as a complete application.

About OpenMake Software

OpenMake Software has been the innovator of Build and Release Management solutions for global 2000 organizations since 1995. By managing more build engines, such as MSBuild and Ant, OpenMake Software represents the natural virtualization of the application build process derived directly from popular IDEs such as Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse. Putting workflow on top of chaos does not solve the build problems. OpenMake Software provides free workflow management with Mojo, but addresses the entire build management challenge with Meister.
