SpringSource announce new ALM service at SpringOne conference.

SpringOne 2010 kicked off this week with the announcement of a
new ALM service, developed in conjunction with Tasktop.

The Tasktop-hosted Code2Cloud will provide a suite of development,
deployment and collaboration tools for simplifying the application
development process. It enables a number of Java cloud deployment
destinations, and builds on projects including Eclipse Mylyn,
SpringSource Tool Suite IDE, Hudson continuous integration and Git.
It will provide a “cloud-centric” issue tracker, compatible with
Bugzilla, and a dashboard for managing applications and development
teams. Code2Cloud will be extensible to other ALM solutions, thanks

hopefully vacuuming up those tedious application management tasks,”
said Red Monk analyst Michael Cote.

Developer preview availability is currently scheduled for Q1,

Neo4j Roo Add-On, providing a plugin that enables users to build
Roo apps backed by Neo4j. Both Datastore Graph and the Roo Add-On
are currently scheduled for a 1.0 release before the end of the
