Perforce veröffentlicht Quellcode von zwei seiner beliebten Tools zur Versionskontrolle

Open-Source-Initiative erleichtert Anwendern die Anpassung ihrer Tools und Workflows an individuelle Anforderungen

Highlights:

  • Perforce stellt Open-Source-Versionen seiner zentralen kommandozeilenbasierten Schnittstelle „P4CLI" und seines webbasierten Clients „P4Web" über Perforce Workshop zur Verfügung
  • Bekanntes Animationsstudio arbeitet mit Perforce zusammen, um auf Open-Source-Basis Software zu entwickeln, die für seine Managementpipeline großer Dateien entscheidend ist

Wokingham, UK, 05. Juni 2014 - Perforce Software bietet zwei seiner Tools zur Versionskontrolle ab sofort als Open-Source-Versionen an: „P4CLI", die zentrale kommandozeilenbasierte Schnittstelle für die leistungsstarke Versionierungs-Engine „P4D", und den populären webbasierten Versionierungs-Client „P4Web". Der kürzlich veröffentlichte Quellcode ermöglicht es Entwicklern, diese Clients noch stärker an ihre individuellen Bedürfnisse sowie an die sich kontinuierlich weiterentwickelnden Umgebungen anzupassen. Alle Open-Source-Projekte sind ab sofort auf „Perforce Workshop" verfügbar, einer von Perforce initiierten und gehosteten Open-Source-Community.

P4CLI ist die zentrale kommandozeilenbasierte Schnittstelle für die Perforce-Versionierungs-Engine „P4D". Die Lösung ist unter Entwicklern und DevOps weit verbreitet, um grundlegende Versionierungsfunktionalitäten zu nutzen und benutzerdefinierte Tools, Plugins und Automatisierungen für ihre Umgebungen zu erstellen. P4Web, ein beliebter Web-Client für P4D, erlaubt es Entwicklern, routinemäßige Versionierungsoperationen über Webbrowser auszuführen. Die Lösung bietet damit einen flexiblen und bequemen Zugang zu allen einer Versionierung unterliegenden Dateien eines Unternehmens und spielt dadurch eine wichtige Rolle in den täglichen Arbeitsabläufen.

Durch die Veröffentlichung von P4CLI und P4Web als quelloffene Lösungen ermöglicht Perforce seinen Kunden noch mehr Kontrolle über ihre Entwicklungsprozesse. Ein erweiterter Zugang zum Quellcode unterstützt die Optimierung der Entwicklungspipeline, da Entwicklerteams benötigte Tools zügig erstellen und Clients besser an eine Vielzahl von Hardwarevarianten und Plattformen anpassen können.

Die Entscheidung, zwei der beliebtesten Tools Open Source zu stellen, ist nicht der erste Schritt des Unternehmens in diese Richtung. Weitere Clients wie P4Pearl, P4Ant und P4Win sind bereits quelloffen verfügbar.

„Open Source ist bereits seit Gründung von Perforce ein fester Bestandteil der Unternehmenskultur", betont Christopher Seiwald, Gründer und CEO von Perforce. „Wir haben unser gesamtes Software-Portfolio schon von Anfang an kostenlos für Open Source-Projekte zur Verfügung gestellt. Wir freuen uns darauf, diese Unterstützung auch in Zukunft mit neuen Open-Source-Releases weiterzuführen."

Perforce Workshop wurde mit P4D und Swarm, dem Perforce-Tool zur Codeprüfung und Kollaboration, entwickelt. Aus diesem Grund ist es besonders interessant für Projekte mit großen Dateien oder solche, die erwartungsgemäß auf ein Gesamtvolumen im Gigabyte-Bereich anwachsen werden.

Zudem greifen immer wieder Drittunternehmen bei ihren Open-Source-Projekten auf den Perforce Workshop zurück. So hat sich etwa ein bekanntes Animationsstudio vor kurzem für Workshop entschieden, um dort die quelloffene Entwicklung wichtiger Komponenten seiner Animations-Pipeline zu verwalten.

Open-Source-Maßnahmen nehmen weiterhin branchenweit zu. Perforce lädt daher Entwickler ein, an Perforce Workshop teilzunehmen und zu Projekten wie dem des Animationsstudios sowie zahlreichen weiteren beizutragen. Weitere Informationen zu anstehenden Community-Events sowie die Anmeldung zu Workshop können unter swarm.workshop.perforce.com abgerufen werden.

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds.

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software development and delivery pipelines. Software Defined Networks (SDNs) turns the network into a flexible confi...
Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we live. “Anytime, anywhere” access to data and information is no longer a luxury; it’s a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver meaningful services to the business and customers.

Enterprises can achieve rigorous IT security as well as improved DevOps practices and Cloud economics by taking a new, cloud-native approach to application delivery. Because the attack surface for cloud applications is dramatically different than for highly controlled data centers, a disciplined and multi-layered approach that spans all of your processes, staff, vendors and technologies is required. This may sound expensive and time consuming to achieve as you plan how to move selected applications to the cloud, but smart organizations are actually reporting an improved security posture, accel...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rather than mimicking legacy server virtualization workflows and architectures.
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction...
