I now work in a development shop with a mixture of technologies. Some of the applications are written in .NET and some in Java and of course the .NET developers want exclusively TFS and the Java developers want Jira.
My concern is that TFS seems unpopular with Java developers and with Jira I am not sure if it meets all the needs of the .NET developers. We are looking for one
platform, the best of breed tools to accommodate both technologies. Emphasis should be on cost, ease of use and customer service.
My questions are, with regards to Defect Tracking and Source Control ONLY:
1. What will the Java Developers lose or gain by moving from a Jira to TFS?
2. What will the .NET developer lose or gain by moving from TFS to Jira?
3. What sites can you recommend to provide reliable reviews of both technologies. I have come across these two, though I don't know how reliable they are. Can you recommend a trustworthy source of review for such tools?
