Subject Re: SDO Java: Getting Involved -- Tests/Samples

Andy,
  that's great thanks.  This begs the question of how we proceed with code
edits.  Would you able to supply any updates you make as patches attached to
a JIRA.  I can then apply them to the code in svn.  If you need any help
with that I'm more than happy to help.  (If you want interactive help I'm
likely to be watching the IRC channel as "kgoodson" on the #Tuscany channel
on irc.freenode.net.)

It would be good to understand how you are currently working with this code
in terms of source code control etc. and what your plans are as we move
forward with this effort.

Best Regards, Kelvin.
