A Close Look at JTrac, an Open Source Bug Tracking Tool

OpenJTrac 2.1.0 is an open source issue tracking web application software, written in Java and it is bundled with Jetty Web Application Server. JTrac is distributed as a WAR file. You can easily install it by dropping the software at your servlet engine. The JTrac web-application checks the environment on startup and if a configured database is not detected, HSQLDB is used by default. If you have Java 5 installed you can run the application after downloading and extracting JTrac – by simply using start and stop scripts. The tool uses Acegi Security framework for Spring. You can get the software from here and there is a documentation at this place.

I found the following useful features of the software:

1.Custom field and drop-down for each project
2.Easy to install
3.Email notification and File attachment
4.Support for LDAP and Active Directory.
5.Text Search and search by custom fileds.
6.Detailed history view
7.You can view the statistics from Dashboard
8.Multiple Language translation.
9.Export data to Excel sheet
10.JTrac comes with the 5 core screens ie. Dashboard, Create, View, Search and Results. You feel comfortable to navigate through them.
12.Contains Embedded database and web-apps server
