SourceForge Enterprise Edition, a product that enables developers in different locations to collaborate on projects over the Internet, will be optimised to work with IBM's WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Studio Application Developer and Tivoli management software.
VA also struck a joint marketing and sales agreement with IBM, which will sell VA's enterprise product, also optimised to run on IBM xSeries servers running Linux.
SourceForge software is used by organisations including Hewlett-Packard and Cornell University, but is possibly best known because of the popular SourceForge.net open-source software development Web site run by a VA subsidiary. This Web site will move to a DB2 database by mid-January.
SourceForge Enterprise Edition for DB2 is due out by the end of the year. Pricing information was not immediately available.
VA will demonstrate SourceForge working with DB2 and IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer at the IBM LinuxWorld Developer Habitat tomorrow.
