I'm trying to evaluate what use I can make of JIRA with Rails/Ruby and am
getting frustrated.

The jira4r gem will install but the soap4r gem won't load.

literally: 'irb -r soap4r' returns :cannot load such file...

I also set this up in a Gemfile and tried to run this from the rails
console:
/Users/TAllison/projects/cs_jira/vendor/cache/ruby/1.9.1/gems/soap4r-1.5.8/lib/xsd/charset.rb:13:
warning: variable $KCODE is no longer effective
/Users/TAllison/projects/cs_jira/vendor/cache/ruby/1.9.1/gems/soap4r-1.5.8/lib/xsd/iconvcharset.rb:9:in
`<top (required)>': iconv will be deprecated in the future, use
String#encode instead.
/Users/TAllison/projects/cs_jira/vendor/cache/ruby/1.9.1/gems/soap4r-1.5.8/lib/xsd/xmlparser.rb:74:in
`<top (required)>': XML processor module not found. (RuntimeError)
from
/Users/TAllison/projects/cs_jira/vendor/cache/ruby/1.9.1/gems/soap4r-1.5.8/lib/soap/parser.rb:9:in
`require'


I can't any updates to this since ~2010. Which leads me to believe that
this entire set of libraries is just a bunch of dead wood.
Software isn't updated.
No traffic on the mailing lists.

So my next question is -- does anyone use JIRA API with Ruby/Rails and if
so -- how?
I'm really surprised at the complete lack of mention in the last 2 years
and am wondering if I made a mistake picking Jira up as a potential
solution for my business.

Any experiences?

    I'm guessing, not very many. I attend the Ruby user's group whenever I
    can. I've not seen or heard of anyone using JIRA with Rails. Most prefer
    a more "agile" project management tool such as PivotalTracker,
    Lighthouse or similar. Each of these have REST based APIs and are often
    integrated with Rails.

    I'm not surprised about this. JIRA is an "Enterprisy" project management
    tool. While Ruby on Rails is perhaps gaining some ground in the
    enterprise space it's not something necessarily driven by the core
    Rubyists.

    Rails is well known to be an "opinionated" framework. And SOAP lost that
    battle years ago to REST. So I'm not surprised to see little mention, or
    support, of a SOAP based API no matter what's sitting on the other side
    of it.

    I'm not saying that your choice of JIRA was a mistake. I've not
    evaluated the software, mostly because my first glance at it didn't
    appeal me. And, finding out now that its API is based on SOAP just
    lowered my interest even further.

    I did evaluate a lot of project management/tracking solutions and found
    only one that I was actually happy with, which is PivotalTracker. That's
    not to say it's the solution for everyone though.

    As for helping you with your soap4r/JIRA integration problem. I'm not
    surprised your having trouble, but I have no idea how to help you with
    that. I do wish you luck in fining a solution.

    Greenhopper is a Jira plugin for Scrum teams - Pivotal Tracker, Rally
    and others get better reviews from users I have heard from.

    Where I work we do a lot of Jira automation using the SOAP listener,
    both with ruby and java - I have used jira4r (I posted a gemspec for
    it on the Atlassian site if I am remembering correctly) - I think the
    error you are getting means you do not have a supported XML processor
    installed ...

    All the gem does is if I remember correctly is store the session key
    returned from login in an instance variable and then add that
    parameter to every outgoing request that is made - it is pretty tiny
    code-wise.

    Thanks all for the feedback. Good information! Now a few comments on
    where I am today:

    Jira 5.0 does have some nice REST API features that I'm working with. Not
    sure it has everything I need but it seems that previous versions are a
    little light on REST support. Currently stuck in the cloud and trying to
    figure out how to get to a version 5.0 sooner.

    JIRA was not exactly my choice - it was given to me as an Enterprisy
    solution.
    I'm also not using it as an Agile development tool at all. I'm using it as
    the basis for a Customer Service software platform. Not sure that it's the
    best option in the world, but it is the option on my plate today. I am
    interested to hear of any others people have experience with - I'm all for
    "better".

    I think there is a lot that needs to be extended to meet my needs. I just
    hope I can get there with this set of tools.

    Hi Tom,

    I work for Atlassian and have been using the following:

    https://github.com/trineo/jira-ruby/

    Recently updated, built against JIRA 5.0 REST API, and maintained by an
    Atlassian Expert.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    `require'


    I can't any updates to this since ~2010. Which leads me to believe that
    this entire set of libraries is just a bunch of dead wood.
    Software isn't updated.
    No traffic on the mailing lists.

    So my next question is -- does anyone use JIRA API with Ruby/Rails and if
    so -- how?
    I'm really surprised at the complete lack of mention in the last 2 years
    and am wondering if I made a mistake picking Jira up as a potential
    solution for my business.

    Any experiences?
