JIRA is written in Java and leverages the Pico IOC, ofbiz entity engine, and webwork 1 technology stack. For Remote Procedure Calls (RPC), JIRA supports SOAP, XML RPC, and JAVA-API.
JIRA integrates with source control programs (SCM) such as Subversion, CVS, Clearcase, Visual SourceSafe, Mercurial, and Perforce. It has support for English, Japanese, German, French, and Spanish.
JIRA has a plugin architecture and a large number of integrations developed by the JIRA development community and third-parties, including IDE's like Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA using the Atlassian IDE Connector. The JIRA API is designed as an extensible way for developers to plug applications into JIRA.
The Atlassian JIRA team is proud to present JIRA 3.13.
This release fulfils some of the most popular JIRA feature requests. Dashboards can now be shared, and filter sharing has been improved — so it's easy to set up multiple 'template' dashboards, each with specific portlets and filters. New JIRA users can then simply select the dashboards most suited to them.
People using customised workflows will be pleased to learn that JIRA 3.13 provides the ability to edit active workflows — that is, workflows that are currently being used. So workflow logic, transitions, screens and post-functions can now be tweaked on the fly, and a JIRA wizard will guide decisions on how active issues should be handled.
By popular request, you can now restore individual projects from a backup, making it much easier to merge projects back into your existing JIRA instance. We are also happy to announce that personal licenses are available with this release of JIRA.
