ElectricFlow Workgroup Edition (ECWE) allows smaller organizations to automate and manage their software build-test-deploy processes, freeing developers from maintaining homegrown, script-based systems, or adjusting their processes to fit open source tools.

“Every development organization, whether large or small, has unique requirements for its software build-test-deploy process. Instead of creating a homegrown system or being forced to adapt their processes to fit open source or commercial off-the-shelf tools, ElectricFlow Workgroup Edition works the way developers work,” said Usman Muzaffar, Vice President of Product Management for Electric Cloud.

ElectricFlow provides a single system to support multiple components, products and/or platforms, including Java, C++, .NET, or multi-language environments. The new ElectricFlow Workgroup Edition employs the same underlying infrastructure as the ElectricFlow enterprise product, but is designed to support processes and workloads of smaller organizations.

ECWE lets individual Java project teams harness the full power of the Java EE 6 development stack in their build-test-deploy process. Additionally, ElectricFlow implements Java utilities and integrates the relevant data from these tools into a cogent analysis of project health. This saves teams the time consuming task of learning multiple utilities and ensures their use is both effective and consistent. The dashboard and access control capabilities mean that individuals only see the information that is relevant to their team and role in the business.

ECWE also makes it easier to implement Agile development in a Java environment by governing the build-test-deploy process. The Agile requirement of testing working code at the end of each day doesn’t always mesh smoothly with Java’s modularity. ElectricFlow mitigates the introduction of issues into the code base and highlights issues as soon as they occur. Its automation and parallelism capabilities mean that build and test tasks are executed as early as possible and output is captured and analyzed in real-time thanks to its post-processor.
