Introducing the Rational Team Concert Mylyn Connector

Tasktop’s new Rational Team Concert (RTC) Mylyn Connector brings the benefits of task management to the growing number of developers using RTC. This enables developers to instantly resume their coding session when switching RTC work items, automatically track and update time estimates on user stories, and link between RTC and more than 50 ALM integrations provided by the Mylyn ecosystem. This “Ready for IBM Rational Software” validated connector complements Team Concert’s Eclipse integration by re-organizing the development environment around RTC tasks, such as work items.
