Very useful! Thanks.
The software looks great. However, the backend is Oracle. Also, their open source support is non-existing. Their forum is dead since march, and any localization that existed is impossible to access. Their "localization server" has been down for months and there's really no other central place that deals with localization. Also I registered on the forum, but 2 days have gone by and I still don't have access to posting on the forum and I haven't received any mail from them telling me why. In other words, these guys probably benefitted from having people submit their translations for free and now there's no place to bitch (other than here), or ask questions.
open source bug removal and new version release not updated with a regular roadmap
This is one of the best web based PM solutions out there. I have tested quite a few, including commercial offerings, and I have settled with this. It lack issue tracking and financials, but this is still one of the slick packages.
After using Project.net for one year on a daily basis, these are my thoughts about the product: - Virtually bug free. Even though a number of fixes have been rolled out to clients with support contract since version 9.2.5, I've used most features within the product without ever getting stuck. Only the reporting section is of poor quality. I'll try 9.4 once it becomes public but upgrading will not be a priority. - Time-saving. No more tedious double effort when updating Microsoft Project plans or spreadsheets while at the same time keeping track of timesheets in another third-party system. One of the beauties of Project.net is to allow users to update project plans via their timesheet entries. This particular feature has been key to getting adoption within the team. The cherry on the cake is the ability to reassess the task effort upon entry to reflect a change to the task. This fine level of granularity ensures accuracy of the reported overall project progress (bottom to top). - The database schema is well thought of and almost self-explanatory. Complex joins are already handled by a number of database views. To compensate the poor reporting shipped with Project.net, I've developed an external application (not in Java) which plugs into the Oracle DB directly. Reporting is by definition meant to be tailor-made anyway to fit one's requirements, so I expected to write reports myself from day 1. Still, I didn't know it would be so easy to retrieve all sorts of project data (timesheet reports, latest project updates, project forecast, financial forecast, change management, etc...). Bottom line is: Project.net is a quality product and its open-source nature gives access to the DB which compensates shortcomings (reporting) fairly easily. Thumbs up to Project.net, the best value for money in the market.
Easy to run projectnet
