Tasker - Project tracking application

Appliation to track progress within project using either time estimation based or Agile style. Designed and implemented from scratch using Spring MVC 4 Quickstart Maven Archetype It was developed from 18 March 2014 and finished around September 2015, still developed


Aplication is live and can be browsed under This link

Use following credentials to login:


  • All application settings are stored in /src/main/resources/

  • Setup either local or remote PostgreSQL create 'tasq' DB and update db parameters. Schema will be created on first app boot

  • Update email settings in to point to your SMTP server. It's required to send e-mails with account registration. If running app localy , FakeSMTP can be used.

  • Set Default app language

  • Set Default app directory

  • All properties (including e-mail) can be changed later on by Administrator in "Manage application" view

  • Build with maven using command mvn package

  • Create directory on server to match app dir ( default is /usr/local/tasq )

  • Make sure that tomcat7 is owner of this dir , execute ux command ( for tomcat7 it's ) :
    chwon -R tomcat7:tomcat7 /usr/local/tasq

  • Map avatar directory in tomcat config /etc/tomcat7/server.xml
    <Context docBase="/usr/local/tasq/avatar" path="/avatar" /> in <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps"unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"> section ( at the bottom of config )

  • To use custom properties file,there are two aproaches:

  • 1.Add VM arg properties.location for example : -Dproperties.location=/usr/local/tasq/ It can be added to JAVA_OPTS in

  • 2.Add context param into tomcat context for example: <Parameter name="propertiesPath" value="C:/work/" override="false"/>

  • While application is starting it will look for VM arg first, then context param. If none found, from resources will be used

  • Deploy on tomcat (copy to webapp dir)

  • First registered user will be made application administrator, default theme, and logo will also be created. This step is crucial as if failed , there might be issues with showing logo etc.

  • To show signin form right away for not logged user, change property in to true. Otherwise landing page will be shown with basic application information

  • Be sure to read help, especially Administrator section to know how to work with application


For now supported is polish(pl) and english(en), but can be easly added as whole app is created to support multiple locale In order to add your language throw in new file in src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/i18n/ and adding select option to settings panel : src\main\webapp\WEB-INF\views\user\settings.jsp

<option value="XX" <c:if test="${user.language eq 'XX'}">selected</c:if>>
     <s:message code="lang.XX" text="XXXXXX" />

Also recommended to add lang.xx code to other languages properties files . This will be changed later to facilitate whole process, Third party localisation plugins like trumbowyg (Richtext editor) will be required as well , please see
