BugTracker.NET versus other issue tracking systems

by Corey Trager 20. October 2007 18:49

Welcome to post #1 of my new blog. 

In the coming days I intend to post a series of comparisions of issue tracking systems.   In each post I'll compare BugTracker.NET head-to-head with one other bug/issue tracking system. 

Disclosure: Some issue tracking vendors pay me to advertise on my website. 

I'll focus on why you might choose The Other over  BugTracker.NET or vice versa.  I haven't spent that much time exploring other systems in many years, so these reviews will give me a chance to step back from my work and see what I can steal learn from other systems.   It's interesting to me to see how different developers solved - or skipped - the same problem, and that's part of what I'll write about.

I'll start off with the systems that are built using the same technologies that BugTracker.NET is built on: IIS, SQL Server, and ASP.NET (or old fashioned ASP), and a web-based inteface.    This group includes Countersoft Gemini, FogBugz, SourceGear Dragnet, and maybe Axosoft OnTime, which has both a desktop and web interface.

After I get through these, then I'll look at some that run on an apache/mySql platform, especially Mantis and Trac, both free and open source.  Of course, just like you, I'm attracted to the trackers that are free or at least pretty cheap.

Great open source tool. However upload feature of existing bugs is desirable

Keep it up
