Teamprise makes its TFS Eclipse plugin available for free!

When I was helping the NUnit team with Linux integration, Charlie tested moving the project to CodePlex. Which was all fine and dandy, except I couldn’t access the source code repository from my Linux box to pull down or push up code.

Well, Linux developers needing to access CodePlex rejoice! Teamprise, who makes a handy-dandy plugin for Eclipse to access TFS, announced they are making the plugin available to open source developers.

To get it, you need to go to the Teamprise CodePlex site for the details. They also have a press release up about it.

I’m excited because I just emailed out a couple of days ago to the GM of Platform Strategy saying that I was glad the work Microsoft is doing to bring open source concepts in house, but that it was disappointing not being able to access CodePlex from anything but Windows machines without buying a license.

I still want to play around with getting the native Team Explorer client running in Mono, but that’s for another day.

    Hi Cory,

    Let us know how you get on with Teamprise – if you want to drop me a line my email is martin at teamprise.com.

    To use the client on Linux, you need a JVM that has DES encryption support (for the NTLM over SSL authentication to TFS that CodePlex currently uses). The GCJ does not have this, but the Sun JVM’s do.

    Good luck,

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information.
