Bugzilla 3.0

August 11th, 2007 1 Comment »

Lately I’ve been playing with the Bugzilla 3.0 XML-RPC API.

It turned out to be quite basic and inconsistent, but nevertheless – it’s a progress.

It’s also a CPU hog, so I’d not recommend running Bugzilla without mod_perl (latest versions finally added this long-time awaited feature).

The last time I wanted to integrate Bugzilla in one of our projects, I’d to write a class which mimicked a browser and this way contacted Bugzilla.

But this time I’ve come up with a nice Ruby module for Bugzilla, which has API similar of that of ActiveRecord, making integration of it in Ruby-on-rails application quite simple.

I’ll probably add some comments, throw in some more tests and open a project on rubyforge or something. Not to forget to notify the Bugzilla guys, perhaps they’ll find some use for this code.
