that good weeks of a TechEd or a similar event, finally a lot of internal projects of the teams of product Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server begin to present and we can talk publicly about them. In this case it is up to an SDK a much stranger compared with those who usually us submit Microsoft, because it is an SDK for JAVA, with a number of libraries to facilitate the connection to the services provided by Team Foundation Server from environments not Microsoft. Obviously was Brian Harry, who introduced him and is not also went with cortitas, with ads, promises, etc.; This SDK now available for download from here.
The sources of this SDK are based on those used for team Explorer everywhere, that if you did not know is a plugin forEclipse that allows to work with TFS2010 from it. From these sources, it is possible to extend the capabilities of TFS in non-Microsoft environments using Java as a development platform.
Brian Harry says the details very well in his post, so I will not go to translate them, but if comment that in addition to the APIs in connection with TFS, include other interesting elements such as e.g., libraries to solve problems of authentication with Windows (Kerberos) environments, and all the available code compiled for Windows (x 86, x 64), Mac (Universal), Linux(x86,_x64,_ppc), HP-UX (ia64_32, pa_risc), Solaris (sparc, x 86, x 64) and AIX (ppc). Matt takes!
