The following are open source or free software applications. development solutions, today announced the availability of the CollabNet Connectors to HP Quality Center. It features the first end-to-end integration between the industry's leading code repository and version control system - Subversion, and the industry's premier quality management system. In addition, the integration between CollabNet Enterprise Edition and HP Quality Center provides software developers and test engineers real-time visibility into the entire distributed software development lifecycle. As an HP Software Gold Business Partner and with Integrations Interoperability Tested by HP, CollabNet is now a part of HP's Quality Management Ecosystem to provide customers with innovative development solutions and global support for these integrations as well as Subversion.
The CollabNet Connectors to HP Quality Center are a central component of CollabNet's recently introduced CollabNet Integration Package. The CollabNet Integration Package offers development organizations flexible integration options for Subversion, CollabNet Enterprise Edition and SourceForge([R]) Enterprise Edition. It includes connectors to code repositories such as IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) ([R]) Rational([R]) ClearCase([R]) and CollabNet Desktop-Eclipse(TM) Edition, a newly released integration with the popular Eclipse IDE (1) (Integrated Development Environment) A set of programs run from a single user interface. For example, programming languages often include a text editor, compiler and debugger, which are all activated and function from a common menu. . The CollabNet Connectors to HP Quality Center are available now as a free download with optional support packages from the openCollabNet developer Web site (http://downloads.open.collab.net).

Quality assurance (QA) is a critical element in the software development lifecycle; its effectiveness depends largely on formal test plans that record up-to-date information about test design, test cases, QA applications and procedures. Software testing Software testing is the process used to measure the quality of developed computer software. Usually, quality is constrained to such topics as correctness, completeness, security, but can also include more technical requirements as described under the ISO standard ISO 9126, such impacts not only the quality of the code, but ultimately determines a company's ability to bring production-quality code to market in a timely and cost-effective manner.
The CollabNet Connectors to HP Quality Center deliver the first real-time integration between a collaborative and distributed software environment and HP's Quality Management Ecosystem, providing developers and test engineers with real-time visibility into the development process while ensuring that all software tests are performed against the right version of the test plan. The CollabNet Connectors to HP Quality Center automatically gather defects from HP Quality Center and copy them to the CollabNet environment. The synchronized syn·chro·nize

Teams in multi-site development organizations benefit greatly as this combined solution allows test teams to work in HP Quality Center while developers continue to work in their preferred development environment.
"The HP Quality Management Ecosystem enables our partners to develop extensions for HP Quality Center and HP Performance Center to help quality teams become productive as quickly as possible with new platforms, applications and environments," said Jonathan Rende, vice president, Products, Software, HP. "We are pleased that CollabNet is providing CollabNet Connectors to HP Quality Center to help customers optimize the quality of their critical business applications."
Using the CollabNet Subversion Connector to HP Quality Center, test managers create Subversion-enabled projects directly in HP Quality Center to gain access to Subversion's version-management capabilities. Test plans are stored and version controlled in Subversion's central repositories where users can search and access data to track changes in related test files and documents. When test plans are added, modified, or deleted in HP Quality Center, these changes are passed automatically to the Subversion repository. It allows test administrators to revert back to earlier versions of a test plan in HP Quality Center and search for specific modifications that may have impacted the test results and take corrective action A corrective action is a change implemented to address a weakness identified in a management system. Normally corrective actions are instigated in response to a customer complaint, abnormal levels if internal nonconformity, nonconformities identified during an internal audit or .

Subversion, conceived and sponsored by CollabNet for the past five years, also earned the best score on strategy of all standalone SCM products. Based on customer references, Subversion also received top scores for implementation, (with an average installation and configuration time of less than a month) and administration (with an average administrator-to-user ratio of one per 1,300). Schwaber also wrote that Subversion is, "the most-cost effective and developer-friendly offering available today."
