Scarab is an Issue Tracking System that features data entry, queries, reports, notifications to interested parties, collaborative accumulation of comments, dependency tracking, and collaborative prioritization (voting).
Scarab uses Java Servlet technology to enhance speed, scalability, maintainability, and ease of installation. It contains XML import/export support, allowing easy migration from other systems (like Bugzilla).
The modular code design eases the modification of features. It is fully customizable via a set of administrative Web pages. The look and feel of the UI can easily be modified, and Scarab can easily be integrated into larger systems.
Here are some key features of "Scarab":
· A full feature set similar to those found in other Artifact tracking systems: data entry, queries, reports, notifications to interested parties, collaborative accumulation of comments, dependency tracking
· In addition to the standard features, Scarab has fully customizable and unlimited numbers of Modules (your various projects), Artifact types (Defect, Enhancement, Requirement, etc), Attributes (Operating System, Status, Priority, etc), Attribute options (P1, P2, P3) which can all be defined on a per Module basis so that each of your modules is configured for your specific tracking requirements.
