SOS Open Source analyzed XWiki, the open-source Java wiki platform maintained by the homonymous company, born in France in 2004 and now based in France and Romania.
Let’s start from the source code. XWiki code base is stable and mature. While the are no books specialized on XWiki, there are few books covering XWiki basics and case-studies available (also from 3rd parties).
XWiki popularity compares well to others in its class, despite the news volume is low.
During the development of SOS Open Source we analyzed over 60 tools to evalute open source software, and among them we came across Sonar. Sonar is an open source software quality management tool dedicated to continuously analyze and measure source code quality, with very active users and developers mailing-lists and over 3000 downloads per month.
A little blog post to tell you more about what we at SOS Open Source are working on this summer.
Here’s what we are working on right now:
- Open Source Project Management tools. STATUS: we are currently developing a prototype for our customer based on our tool of choice (Redmine). We plan to ship the final customized version in September-mid October. We hopefully be able to share our plug-ins and enhancements before the end of October. »
