Hi, My name is Gorkem and I am a Mylyn addict. Mylyn makes it so convenient to work with my tasks, switching between them etc. However, I was trying to quit lately.
I use ScrumWorks for my daily work and a Mylyn connector ( plugin(s) that enable Mylyn to retrieve/update data ) to ScrumWorks did not exist. This meant, I had to do a lot of copying and pasting between two tools. Obviously, this manual synchronization effort was futile and I had to give up on one. Since, It is not possible to give up on ScrumWorks, I decided to put Mylyn aside. I tried for a week or so but once you get used to the stuff it is hard to quit.
On a moment of desperation, I thought, I have some experience with developing Eclipse stuff that connects to servers. If I get enough cappuccinos to my system, I can develop a ScrumWorks connector for myself. It turns out I was right, after giving some part of my night’s sleep, I have it. My Mylyn connector that allows me to retrieve and update backlog Items and tasks. I can also add tasks to backlog items and of course it works in great harmony with the rest of Mylyn.
