Great content - poor layout on iPad Kindle reader April 6 2012
By Dieter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a real must for Jira developers because it addresses the aspects that really matter. If you read this carefully you should be able to tackle all kinds of Jira plugins.
I bought the Kindle edition which is good to read except the code examples which are nearly unreadable since there are no line breaks. I have observed this on my iPad, maybe the display is better on the Kindle device. Please fix that!

Evolve Jira into a system - get this book Jan. 16 2012
By rmsrini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you want to develop Jira as a business system that can almost do anything, get this book to know the nuts and bolts of Jira development.

All the chapters were self sufficient and if you are a Jira Admin - this book is for you.

If you're working with JIRA, buy a copy. Dec 15 2011

From [...]

Summary: lots of interesting JIRA recipes, lots of source code, and not too many bugs.

Disclaimer: I'm the author a similar but much shorter (and cheaper) book Practical JIRA Plugins (O'Reilly August 2011). After I bought a copy of JIRA Development Cookbook I was given an online copy by Packt to help with this review.

The Good Bits

The chapters on gadgets and JQL are especially useful. The UI recipes are all things I've been asked to do for clients in the past. My favorite one is adding JavaScript to a field's description to make the help text expand (p.85).

The Custom Fields chapter is also well written and the comparison of version 1 and version 2 plugins is excellent.

The screenshots are all done well.

Not As Good Bits

Applicable JIRA versions are noted in many, but not all, locations where it matters.
Testing of plugins is glossed over. Which is fair enough, since that's exactly what I did in my own Practical JIRA Plugins book.
There are few if any references to other plugins that show examples of each recipe in use.
Many of the changes involve modifying the JIRA database schema or the application files rather than providing a plugin to do this. This makes upgrades harder than necessary.

Oh Well ..
The publisher could have done a better job proof editing this book.
There are numerous rough sentences and improperly capitalized parameter names.
I don't have a VAT number so I had to buy my copy through Amazon instead of the Packt website.
The best book about JIRA customization and extension out there Feb. 2 2012
By EMC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An excellent book about JIRA plugin development written for programmers by a programmer. The book is extensive, well organized, homogeneous and very effective. The author guides you through the subject from the initial setup of the development environment, describing the most important JIRA APIs to extend and customize the JIRA behavior, including advanced topics such as JQL customization and the extension of the JIRA database schema. The book also covers in detail the customization process of the JIRA user interface and the integration of JIRA with third party systems using web services (SOAP, RESTful and JAX-RPC). A must-have for a JIRA plugin developer.

If you're interested about a more in-depth review of this book, I wrote a post about it in my blog (<...>).
Game changing technology Jan. 21 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This book shows the power of JIRA, the best plugin book yet by far from one of the best plugin developers and his company are leaders in JIRA Plugins.

Also interesting to see the power of JIRA and why it is taking over the industry! Look out, these products are industry changers and the prices for the products and services have set the status quo up side down!

One thing I would like to see, it seems Jobin and his company are using a new style of plugin development, basically a cloud based integration for entire systems instead of traditional point to point solutions they call the product ConnectAll. This book came out before their new ConnectAll plugin. I wish it had covered this approach!
