Mylyn-Mantis Repository Connector
Mylyn-Mantis Repository Connector (also known as Mylyn, the Mantis Connector) is an open source, platform-independent and freely distributed software project implemented in Java and designed from the offset to act as a Mylyn connector for the well known Mantis bug tracker software.
Designed for Eclipse IDE
While allowing users to easily manage their bugs directly from Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment), Mylyn-Mantis Repository Connector comes with support for updating, synchronizing and creating tasks, commenting, as well as downloading and uploading of attachments.
In addition, this plugin allows offline access to the Mantis’ bug tracking data, and supports any platform where the Java Runtime Environment is available, including all GNU/Linux distributions, as well as the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It has been successfully tested on 64-bit (x86_64) and 32-bit (x86) hardware platforms.
