SourceForge Software Developer's Kit (SDK)

SourceForge Enterprise Edition is designed with integration and extensibility in mind. It is built on a platform-independent Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) architecture and also features a Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA) that includes an open API. This enables SourceForge to be deployed within large enterprises, making it easier to integrate with a wide range of third-party applications, authentication systems, databases, software configuration management (SCM) systems, and in-house tools.

A SOAP proxy server is available to software developers to access the SourceForge APIs for the development of integration code. And the SourceForge Enterprise Edition complementary Java software development kit (SDK) provides developers with detailed instructions on working with the SourceForge APIs through the SOAP interface, and includes API and services definitions, web services description language (WSDL) definitions, and annotated code examples.
