"I really like the way you can access your work items from within Outlook. I like the way you can bring up the full work item forms, make edits, and save immediately to TFS. It was great to create new meeting requests or mail messages from the work items."

Lori Lamkin
Product Unit Manager for Team Foundation Server at Microsoft

"These types of products are important to the industry."

Joel Semeniuk
CEO and co-founder of ImagiNET Resources Corp.

"I know of a good number of companies that will love having something like this - getting their timesheet management into TFS (so it can be reported on, especially) will make life a lot easier for them."

James Manning
Software Design Engineer for Visual Studio project at Microsoft

"I like the idea of being able to link work items to e-mails and meetings. I also like that it provides non-technical information workers the option of working with TFS in a more familiar environment. Congratulations to TeamExpand on the release!"

Jason Barile
Principal Test Manager for Visual Studio Team Foundation Server at Microsoft

"TX Chrono, by TeamExpand, allows users to easily track how they are spending their time, store that information in TFS, and make it available for reporting in the warehouse."

TFS Development: Now in Java

May 16th, 2011

Team Foundation Server extendibility is a core design feature that provides great capabilities for TFS development. Up until recently Microsoft provided a .NET library only for interacting with TFS. From now on you can also use Java for TFS development, as Team Foundation Server SDK for Java was made available for download.

This is going to enable teams using Team Explorer Everywhere to fully customize their development environment, in or outside Eclipse. ISVs can enhance their TFS add in offerings with this new Java SDK for TFS development. The SDK includes the following features:

    • A redistributable JAR file containing the TFS API. It provides access to version control, work item tracking, and other TFS functionality from the Java-based application.
    • The native code libraries used by the TFS API.
    • Full API documentation in Javadoc format.
    • Code samples: custom check-in policy; custom work item controls; a set of console applications utilizing build and version control capabilities; a series of simple snippets demonstrating aspects of the API; instructions to get TFS developers started with this SDK.

This TFS development SDK for Java is a next step in making TFS an open platform that anyone can use with their favorite development tools. This is yet another proof of TFS being a profound ALM solution for heterogeneous teams.
