Eclipse Mylyn Integration
Mylyn is the task and application lifecycle management (ALM) framework for Eclipse. Mylyn allows developers to connect to a ]project-open[ server and to review, update and create tasks.
The ]project-open[ team and Markus Knittig have developed a Mylyn "connector" that uses the ]project-open[ REST interface in order to communicate with a ]po[ server.
The current version (2013-10-18) is available for Eclise 4.3 (Kepler) or higher.
The ]po[-Mylyn Eclipse update site is located at:
The ]po[-Mylyn source code is available on GitHub at:
