In One Minute : JIRA

Jira is a proprietary issue tracking product developed by Atlassian that allows bug tracking, agile, project management and Work management.

The product name comes from the second syllable of the Japanese word pronounced as Gojira, which is Japanese for Godzilla.

According to Atlassian, Jira is used for issue tracking and project management by over 180,000 customers in 190 countries.

Jira is written in Java and uses the Pico inversion of control container, Apache OFBiz entity engine, and WebWork 1 technology stack.

Jira has REST, SOAP, and XML-RPC interfaces.
Jira integrates with source control programs such as Clearcase, Concurrent Versions System, Git, Mercurial, Perforce, Subversion, and Team Foundation Server.

It ships with various translations including English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

When launched in 2002, Jira was purely issue tracking software, targeted at software developers.

The app was later adopted by non-IT organizations as a project management tool.
