Welcome to the Tuscany SDO Java subproject. 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 SDO sub-project aims to provide uniform access to data from heterogeneous sources which
could be XML, RDB, POJO, SOAP, etc.
* Tuscany Java SDO is not just a reference implementation. We encourage innovation based on
the tenets of SDO. A lot of work we do provides feedback to the specifications.
* SDO provides both a static (or strongly typed) programming model and a dynamic (or loosely
typed) programming model. This provides a simple programming model without sacrificing the
dynamic model needed by tools and frameworks.
* It supports a disconnected model and provides Meta-data for easy introspection of data types.

h3. {anchor:Getting Source and Setup}{bgcolor:#C3CDA1}Getting Source code and Setting Development

The Java SDO project Subversion repository is located at [https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/tuscany/java/sdo].
The repository can also be viewed online at [http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/tuscany/java/]

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.

h4. 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):
svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/tuscany/java/sdo

h4. 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:
svn commit
If Subversion can't figure out your username, you can tell it explicitly:
svn --username <name> commit
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.

For more details check [Getting Source|http://cwiki.apache.org/TUSCANY/getting-source.html].
Also for setup details check [Establishing a Development Environment|http://cwiki.apache.org/TUSCANY/set-up-sdo-development-environment.html].
Reference the code structure at [SDO Project Code Structure|http://cwiki.apache.org/TUSCANY/sdo-project-code-structure.html].

h3. {anchor:Coding Guidelines}{bgcolor:#C3CDA1}Coding Guidelines{bgcolor}

There are a few simple guidelines when developing for JAVA SDO:
* The basic coding style used is described at [Sun Java coding standards|http://java.sun.com/docs/codeconv/]
but the main thing is to be consistent with the existing code you're updating, so for example,
if you're updating a method that uses the braces on the same line style don't add code with
the hanging braces style.

* Always include the Apache License Headers on all files (both source code files and resource
files such as xml documents)

* Include a descriptive log message for check-ins, for example "fixed such and such problem".

h4. 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. {anchor:Testing}{bgcolor:#C3CDA1}Testing{bgcolor}

Tuscany uses plain junit test cases to perform unit and integration testing. You can check
[Test Cases|https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/tuscany/java/sdo/impl/src/test/] for
some examples.

(on) 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. {anchor:Maven Build Structure}{bgcolor:#C3CDA1}Maven Build Structure{bgcolor}

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

h3. {anchor:Providing patches}{bgcolor:#C3CDA1}Reporting issues and providing patches{bgcolor}

You are very welcome to help us develop Tuscany SDO Java.  You may have ideas that you want
to pursue yourself or you may wish to pitch in with the design, coding and documentation.
 If it's the first of these two then please put forward your suggestions on the [development
mailing list|mailto:tuscany-dev@ws.apache.org].  If it's the latter, then feel free to ask
on the [mailing|mailto:tuscany-dev@ws.apache.org] list or browse the issue tracking.
