  • jira.waltercedric.comI did update my bug tracker to the latest release of JIRA

    Press release

    “ The Atlassian JIRA team is delighted to present a brand new version of one of the world's favourite issue-trackers.

    We have improved the UI to provide contextual awareness, improving the navigation and usability with features like activity streams and issue history. We have also added the most powerful searching capabilities ever seen in a bug tracker, called JIRA Query Language (JQL). The simple auto-complete entry system makes it incredibly easy for any user to create sophisticated queries.

    We have completely overhauled the JIRA dashboards to make it quick and easy for anyone to create and add gadgets, move them around using drag & drop, and share dashboards with other team members. Using the new Plugins 2.0 architecture, we built new dashboards using OpenSocial. This means each JIRA dashboard is an OpenSocial container allowing you to consume any OpenSocial compliant gadgets from either Atlassian tools or other external sources. Conversely, JIRA gadgets can be exposed in any OpenSocial container (like iGoogle, and soon, Confluence).”

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/vhosts/waltercedric.com/httpdocs/includes/frontend.php on line 85

    Edit the file includes/frontend.php , this is the correct code: 

    * Cache some modules information
    * @return array
    function &initModules() {
    global $database, $my, $Itemid;

    if (!isset( $GLOBALS['_MOS_MODULES'] )) {
    $query = "SELECT id, title, module, position, content, showtitle, params"
    . "\n FROM __modules AS m"
    . "\n INNER JOIN __modules_menu AS mm ON mm.moduleid = m.id"
    . "\n WHERE m.published = 1"
    . "\n AND m.access <= '". $my->gid ."'"
    . "\n AND m.client_id != 1"
    . "\n AND ( mm.menuid = '".$Itemid."' OR mm.menuid = 0 )"
    . "\n ORDER BY ordering";

    $database->setQuery( $query );
    $modules = $database->loadObjectList();
    foreach ($modules as $module) {
    $GLOBALS['_MOS_MODULES'][$module->position][] = $module;
    return $GLOBALS['_MOS_MODULES'];
    In yellow what has changed in that  method (extract)
    . "\n AND m.access <= '".$my->gid ."'"
    . "\n AND ( mm.menuid = '".$Itemid."'OR mm.menuid = 0 )"

    In order to better track issues, I still recommend you to create an account as soon as you want to ask or do something serious. Google will rapidly index the site and hopefully also all comments and workaround I will publish there.


    Do not hesitate to post any new features on every component wish list.


    You can create issues without login but you will have to register if you want to attach a file.

  • Atlassian JIRA Atlassian Bamboo

    I am very proud to announce that I got granted a JIRA and Bamboo Open Source license!

    Extract form their site:
    Open Source

    Atlassian supports and believes in the Open Source movement -JIRA utilises a number of good Open Source components, and Atlassian developers are committers on a large number of Open Source projects.

    To give back to the open source community (and hopefully improve the quality of those projects!),JIRA is free for any Open Source project to use.

    There are a few requirements for an Open Source license, the main ones being:

    • Established code base
    • Publicly available project website
    • Using an approved open source license
    • YourJIRA instance will be publicly accessible

    That was my submission to JIRA :

    Project Description

    All  my code is GPL and hosted at www.joomlacode.org, binaries are all available at http://www.waltercedric.com/joomla-releases-mainmenu-269.html and I have a well established reputation since 2004 in Joomla!  community. My forums http://forums.waltercedric.com/ has more than 1000 members,  my wiki is at http://wiki.waltercedric.com and the some of my GPL project I am maintaining can be seen at http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/owner/cedric_walter/1

    My code is focused on fighting spammers and recently increasing Joomla! performances. I am also now trying to develop a continuous build strategy for Joomla! extensions.

    I would like to use JIRA with Eclipse MYLYN to speed up my development and increase the overall quality of my releases. Bamboo would be used to develop the continuous build strategy and the development of the GPL underlying framework.

    You must be evaluating our products on a publicly assessable website. If you are not, then please come back to this application when you have done so. *

    My tracker is at http://bugs.waltercedric.com

    Thanks for your consideration and contribution to the open source community.

    Open Source License(s) used: *

    GPL v2 and v3

    Where can we download your source code? *


    but too much project to be listed here, anonymous SVN access is always possible. I am admin in all these projects


    So what does that mean for You?

    Mantis is no more used, and replaced by JIRA. Soon I will provide in my WIKI a how to connect to JIRA within Eclipse PDT targeted at developers. And will start feeding the Bug Tracker with previous/new issues. Feel free to register and report there any wishes, bugs...

    A warm thanks to Atlassian for supporting the open source community, Thanks You Atlassian
