Projects / Scarab


Scarab is an Issue Tracking System that features data entry, queries, reports, notifications to interested parties, collaborative accumulation of comments, dependency tracking, and collaborative prioritization (voting). It uses Java Servlet technology to enhance speed, scalability, maintainability, and ease of installation. It contains XML import/export support, allowing easy migration from other systems (like Bugzilla). The modular code design eases the modification of features. It is fully customizable via a set of administrative Web pages. The look and feel of the UI can easily be modified, and Scarab can easily be integrated into larger systems.
