AccuRev Inc. announced the week of EclipseCon 2008 that customers are taking advantage of the new feature, usability and performance enhancements within its latest AccuBridge for Eclipse(TM) plug-in. AccuRev allows developers to access process-centric software configuration management (SCM) functionality directly within their familiar Eclipse IDE integration platform, enabling more familiar user interface options and increasing productivity.

Over half our customers today are using the Eclipse IDE, and we continue to work to define the optimal SCM experience for developers within Eclipse. This release demonstrates both the simplicity and power of AccuRev for the Eclipse development community.

    Joe Shelby, Technical Lead, TEOCO Corporation, said, "Integration with the Eclipse IDE was very important to us when selecting our new SCM vendor, as was robust support for release management activities. AccuRev offered parallel development support superior to that of the Eclipse integrations from the other SCM tools we evaluated. In particular, the Team Synchronize view has given our developers a near-seamless migration to AccuRev.

Mr. Shelby continued, "We appreciate the attention by AccuRev in keeping the user interface truly integrated with Eclipse and similar to its built-in components, allowing our team to move forward with the new SCM implementation with minimal time lost in training."

Significant feature, usability and performance enhancements within AccuBridge for Eclipse 2008.1 include:

-- Eclipse Team Synchronize View - Full support for the Eclipse Team Synchronize view allows users to review the differences between local resources and their versions in the AccuRev repository. Update and Commit wizards allow developers to synchronize their private workspace with other developers' changes by calling all required AccuRev operations (keep, promote, defunct, add) in one step, saving time and increasing productivity.

-- Enhanced Diff and Merge Functionality - Full support for both content and namespace merges (in case files were renamed or moved) and the ability to auto-merge multiple files. A special preference allows users to choose between AccuRev and Eclipse standard diff and merge tools.

-- Eclipse History View - AccuBridge for Eclipse now supports the native Eclipse History view. This enables developers to work with historical versions of AccuRev files using the familiar Eclipse history window, further increasing developer productivity.

AccuBridge for Eclipse also provides several additional usability and productivity enhancements, including a redesigned Checkout Wizard and improved menus for easy access to AccuRev functionality.

Cliff Utstein, vice president of marketing, AccuRev, said, "Over half our customers today are using the Eclipse IDE, and we continue to work to define the optimal SCM experience for developers within Eclipse. This release demonstrates both the simplicity and power of AccuRev for the Eclipse development community."
