h3. General Guide
Welcome to the Tuscany RDB DAS Java subproject project. We look forward to your participation
and try to help you get on board. Feel free to ask your questions on the mailing list.

Here are some general guidelines we use in this project.

*	Java RDB DAS sub-project aims to provide enterprise-grade Data Access Service to help SOA
applications using SDO have data updates with Database Data Source at backend. 
*	Java RDB DAS provides feedback to Tuscany SDO  and Spec as it evolves. 
*	The Java RDB DAS  provides flexibility in accessing data with explicit CRUD as well as using
SDO  DataObjects. 
*	The Java RDB DAS infrastructure is very modularized and is designed to be highly extensible
so users can customize it to fit their needs. 

h3. Getting Source code
The Java RDB DAS project Subversion repository is located at https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/tuscany/java/das
.
The repository can also be viewed online at http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/tuscany/java/das

Anyone can check code out of Subversion. You only need to specify a username and password
in order to update the Subversion repository, and only Tuscany committers have the permissions
to do so.

h3. Checking out code from Subversion
Use the command as follows (note that it uses http scheme so if you're a committer change
it to https):

{noformat} svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/tuscany/java/das {noformat}

h3. Committing Changes to Subversion
Any Tuscany committer should have a shell account on svn.apache.org. Before you can commit,
you'll need to set a Subversion password for yourself. To do that, log in to svn.apache.org
and run the command svnpasswd.
Once your password is set, you can use a command like this to commit:

{noformat} svn commit {noformat}

If Subversion can't figure out your username, you can tell it explicitly:

{noformat} svn --username <name> commit {noformat}

Subversion will prompt you for a password, and once you've entered it, it will remember it
for you. Note this is the password you configured with svnpasswd not your shell or other password.

h3. Setting up your Development Environment

*Prerequisites*

Java RDB DAS requires the following:
*	JDK 5.0+ (J2SE 1.5.0+)  
*	Apache Maven (2.0.4+)  
*	Subversion (1.2+)  

h3. Build tree structure

The build tree is designed to facilitate modular development and releases. Maven modules are
grouped by how they are released under a hierarchy. Java RDB DAS currently have the below
module hierarchy :

{noformat}
-java
 |-- das
     |-- distribution         DAS distributions
     |-- rdb                	 DAS Core Source
     |-- samples              DAS Web, J2SE Sample Applications
{noformat}

The individual modules can be built separately or build with top-down build.

*top-down build (recommended approach)*

Check out all of the java source code.

{noformat}svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/tuscany/java {noformat}

Building the RDB DAS source code is simple

{noformat}
cd java/das
mvn
{noformat}

It should work irrespective of whether you have an empty Maven local repository. This assumes
that maven is able to retrieve a SNAPSHOT version of SDO (and of course the rest of software
that RDB DAS depends on) as we do not build anything other than RDB DAS here.

There can be occasional problems downloading artifacts from remote Maven repositories so if
mvn fails with network related sounding messages sometimes just trying again can fix the problem.
Once you have done a top-down build, and your local maven repository is populated, you can
start using the maven off line option to speed up the build process

{noformat} mvn -o  {noformat}

h3. Importing RDB DAS into your Development IDE

*Using Eclipse*

If this is the first time you are using your workspace with maven m2 local repository, you
will need to tell your Eclipse workspace the location of the directory, and you can do this
with the following command :

{noformat} mvn -Declipse.workspace=[path-to-eclipse-workspace] eclipse:add-maven-rep {noformat}

In order to generate the necessary project files to import the SCA modules to Eclipse, you
can use the maven eclipse plugin

{noformat}
cd java/das
mvn -Peclipse eclipse:eclipse
{noformat}

Now, launch your Eclipse IDE, select File->Import->Existing projects into Workplace,
and then select the base DAS directory (e.g java/das) and then press Finish, this should import
all DAS core and Samples into your Eclipse Workspace.

h3. Coding Guidelines
There are a few simple guidelines when developing for JAVA DAS:
*	Formatting standards are defined by the .checkstyle and .pmd configurations in the source
repository. Please be sure to check code is formatted properly before doing a checkin (see
below). If you are unfamiliar with Checkstyle or PMD, please see http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/
 and http://pmd.sourceforge.net/ . Consistent formatting makes it easier for others to follow
and allows diffs to work properly. 
*	Always include the Apache License Headers on all files and the following version tag: 
{noformat} @version $Rev$ $Date$ {noformat}
*	Please attempt to accompany code with at least unit tests or verify it by existing tests
before submitting a patch or checking in. 
*	Do not checkin IDE-specific resources such as project files. 
*	Prior to check-in, perform a clean build and run the complete battery of unit tests for
the current module from the command line with Checkstyle enabled, as in: 

{noformat}
mvn clean
mvn -o -Psourcecheck
{noformat}

*	Please do not perform a checkin using an IDE as doing so is frequently problematic. 
*	Include a descriptive log message for checkins, for example "fixed such and such problem".


*Naming conventions to increase consistency*
*Folder Names:* Please use all lowercases and dashes in folder names (like in the jar names)
*	Maven artifact id = tuscany-<folder name> 

*Package names:* Package names within modules should include the module name so that source
code can be located in the source tree easily. 

h3. Testing
All commits are expected to be accompanied by unit test and integration tests when appropriate.
Unit tests should verify specific behavior relating to a single class or small set of related
classes; integration tests verify code paths across subsystems. Testcases should be documented
and clearly indicate what they verify. Also, avoid things that may cause side-effects when
possible such as access of external resources.
Tuscany uses plain junit test cases to perform unit and integration testing. Web Samples use
htmlunit Test cases to verify the expected behavior.  
Note that we use surefire maven plugin to run the unit and integration tests, and in most
cases, they are configured to match a **/*TestCase.java file name pattern. Because of this,
if your test case has a different file name pattern, you might execute it from your IDE of
choice, but the maven build won't execute the test.

h3. Maven Build Structure
We use the term Module to refer to the leaf of maven tree.
*	das/pom.xml's parent will be pom/parent/pom.xml 
*	Other poms will use the pom from the parent folder as parent pom 
*	Group id: org.apache.tuscany.das 
*	Version of our modules will be specified once in java/das/pom.xml, child poms don't need
specify a version as they get it from their parent 
*	pom names begin Apache Tuscany DAS
*	Eclipse projects are generated for all built modules using mvn -Peclipse eclipse:eclipse


h3. Reporting issues and providing patches

*Issue Tracking*

Tuscany bug reports are handled via a [JIRA|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TUSCANY]
 issues list. Please use this list to report any bugs and track their status.

*Reporting an Issue*

Please search JIRA to see if the problem has already been reported. If it has not, please
create a new JIRA issue. To help developers quickly resolve an issue, include as much information
with your report as possible such as your platform, version numbers, error logs, configuration,
steps to reproduce the problem, etc. Also, if possible, please include a testcase that demonstrates
the problem. 
Thanks for working with us to improve Apache Tuscany.

*Submitting a Patch*

To submit a patch, create an issue in JIRA that describes the problem and attach your patch
file. Please include detailed steps to reproduce the problem in the issue description. Providing
test cases in the patch will help us verify and apply it quicker. To create a patch, follow
the steps below:
*	Perform a full build with all tests enabled for the module the fix is for. Specific build
procedures vary by sub-project. 
*	Confirm that the problem is fixed and include testcases where possible 
*	Generate the patch using svn diff File > patchfile 
*	Try to give your patch files meaningful names, including the JIRA number 
*	Add your patch file as an attachment to the associated JIRA issue 
Once you have submitted the patch it will be picked up for review.
