Have you had your Ingres Fixx?

In a comment to my previous blog, Sarat Pediredla of Hedgehog Lab introduced himself and a product called Fixx and said that it “could potentially support Ingres”. Since that comment I’ve exchanged communication with Sarat and now have Fixx 1.3 working with Ingres 9.2.0.

The set-up wasn’t as straight forward as hoped because of the lack of support for Ingres in the Apache DdlUtils. Luckily they’re only used during set-up and those steps can be performed manually. Not ideal but it’s a start. If anyone would like to take a look at DdlUtils and add Ingres support that would be great otherwise I’ll add it to the todo list.

I’ve documented the set-up changes http://community.ingres.com/wiki/Fixx_setup_changes and included the schema creation scripts and data script that creates some roles and the first user.

Download a copy from http://hedgehoglab.com/products/fixx/download/ it’s free for a single user, unpack it and apply the changes to get it running on Ingres. It’s still an early version and lacks some enterprise features but Sarat assures me that they are on the road map.

I’d like to welcome Hedgehog Lab to the Ingres community and hope that they like what they see.

Incidentally, I’m running Fixx on a Icebreaker 9.2.0 appliance just to kick its tires too.

    Hi Ray,

    Just wanted to say thank you for the welcome and to re-iterate that we have an intensive and exciting roadmap as fixx speeds towards 2.0 and full Ingres support could well be a reality sooner than expected. Likewise, enterprise-specific features are being added and updated all the time, so I have no doubt fixx will be the perfect bug tracking solution for the enterprise.

    On another note, I would like to thank you for the tireless effort you put in to getting fixx working with Ingres and your help with documenting the process. I sincerely hope we can continue the good work and deliver a cracking issue tracking solution for the Ingres community.
