- Perforce has released the source code for its Eclipse plug-in (P4Eclipse) and Java API (P4Java)
- P4Java and P4Eclipse allow users to seamlessly integrate Perforce into their Java and Eclipse development workflows and environments and are now available via the Perforce Workshop.
WOKINGHAM, UK. (July 7, 2015) – Perforce Software today announced that it has released the source code for P4Eclipse and P4Java. Now available in the Perforce Workshop, the company’s open source community group, the tools allow users to better integrate the Perforce Helix software configuration management (SCM) and collaboration platform with their Java and Eclipse development workflows. P4Java and P4Eclipse are the latest in more than 20 popular clients open sourced by Perforce.
Integrations with Eclipse and Java are instrumental for any version control platform used in software development. P4Eclipse, the Perforce plug-in for Eclipse, seamlessly brings the strengths of Perforce’s version management system to Eclipse’s powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Implemented as a pure Java solution, P4Eclipse provides a developer-oriented set of features from the Eclipse Team framework that support a wide range of Agile and traditional development workflows. P4Java, Perforce’s Java API, enables applications to access the Helix Versioning Engine natively and enables developers to integrate the API into Java applications and tools.
Releasing the source code for P4Eclipse and P4Java allows teams to build tools more quickly and better customise their development pipelines, while having access to Perforce’s award-winning technical support.
“Adding P4Eclipse and P4Java to the long list of tools we have open sourced reinforces our commitment to the community,” said Christopher Seiwald, founder and CEO of Perforce. “We recognise the work our customers put into customising their Perforce environments, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them to do so.”
P4Eclipse and P4Java are available immediately through the Perforce Workshop. To find additional open source tools, learn about upcoming community events, or join the Workshop, visit: https://swarm.workshop.perforce.com/.
