JavaForge.com was a non-profit and free open source software development community with a hosting portal for open source projects. It hosted software development services such as Project related web hosting, document management, wiki, forum, online chat, issue tracking integrated with optional Git, Mercurial or Subversion revision control.

The technology behind JavaForge was codeBeamer, an Application Lifecycle Management platform with integrated Requirements management, Demand Management, Development & Project Management, QA-Test Management and IT Operations (DevOps)modules. At its height, JavaForge [2] hosted more than 88,000 users.[3]

History[edit]

JavaForge was launched by JavaLobby in September 2005 as the first Java based and Subversion supported free collaboration platform for the open source world. In May 2009, Intland Software, the developer of the software behind JavaForge, took over the operation from JavaLobby and migrated the system to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud platform. JavaForge can be accessed via the web or out of some IDEs. It also provides IDE plugins for Eclipse, Mylyn and NetBeans. In October 2015, Intland announced it was closing JavaForge as of 31 March 2016.[4]
