Full featured JIRA Issue Tracking Gadget

During my internship at WSO2 I created a JIRA issue tracking gadget as a small project. This is flexible gadget made according to the Google gadgets API so it works on any gadget container that supports Google gadgets API such as iGoogle, orkut, WSO2 Gadget Server, etc. In my previous post i explained the data retrieval method I used to gather data for the gadget.

Features

  • Allows the user to specify any company or organisation he/she wants to track the JIRA issues.
  • Displays the most important data and provides a link for additional information.
  • Includes a search tab that provides all the search options provided by the JIRA dashboard
The user can specify the URL of the organisation or company he/she wants to track. Lets say you want to track the Issues of apache.org you have to set "https://issues.apache.org" as the URL likewise the user can specify any JIRA URL that needs to be tracked.

The interface is created using jQuery UI, jQuery UI is a very nice library that can be used to create interactive user interfaces. I will not go on details about jQuery UI you can find the jQuery UI home page here.

I have also created a search tab that allows the users to filter the data according to the parameters he/she wants. The search tab provides almost all the search options provided by the Atlassian JIRA dashboard.
You can find the gadget in iGoogle here
If you want take a look at the code of the gadget you can get it here

Any comments or suggestions about the gadget are welcome. IF you have any issue about the gadget just leave a comment.
