Jira is written in Java and uses the Pico inversion of control container, Apache OFBiz entity engine, and WebWork 1 technology stack. For remote procedure calls (RPC), Jira supports REST, SOAP, and XML-RPC. Jira integrates with source control programs such as Clearcase, Concurrent Versions System (CVS), Git, Mercurial, Perforce, Subversion, and Team Foundation Server. It ships with various translations including English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.
The main features of Jira for agile software development are the functionality to plan development iterations, the iteration reports and the bug tracking functionality.
Jira supports the Networked Help Desk API for sharing customer support tickets with other issue tracking systems.
