In Detail

JIRA provides issue tracking and project tracking for software development teams to improve code quality and the speed of development.

This book is your one-stop resource to master JIRA extension and customization. You will learn how to create your own JIRA plugins, customize the look and feel of your JIRA UI, work with Workflows, Issues, Custom Fields, and much more.

The book starts with recipes on simplifying the Plugin development process followed by a complete chapter dedicated to the Plugin Framework to master Plugins in JIRA.

Then we will move on to writing custom field plugins to create new field types or custom searchers. We then learn how to program and customize Workflows to transform JIRA into a user-friendly system.

Reporting support in an application like JIRA is inevitable! With so much data spanning across different projects, issues, etc and a lot of project planning done on it, we will cover how to work on reports and gadgets to get customized data according to our needs.

We will then look at customizing the various searching aspects of JIRA such as JQL, searching in plugins, managing filters, and so on.

Then the book steers towards programming Issues, i.e. creating/editing/deleting issues, creating new issue operations, managing the various other operations available on issues via the JIRA APIs etc.

In the latter half of the book, you will learn how to customize JIRA by adding new tabs, menus, and web items, communicate with JIRA via the REST, SOAP or XML/RPC interfaces, and work with the JIRA database.

The book ends with a chapter on useful and general JIRA recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even VP's can use it!! :) June 13 2012

I saw this book displayed on one of the vendor stations at the recent Atlassian Summit. After perusing the table of contents, it looked like something that I needed to bring back to my company. Two days after the book arrived there were two V.P.'s and a Director 'fighting' over it and they've already generated query results that have resulted in some process changes and planning decisions. I have ordered 3 additional copies.
5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about JIRA customization and extension out there Feb. 2 2012
By EMC - Published on Amazon.com
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 (<...>).
5.0 out of 5 stars Game changing technology Jan. 21 2012

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!
