Contributing to Goobi.Production

Asked by Jennie Fletcher on 2011-05-18

I am a Java developer from Cambridge University Library and we are looking at potentially using Goobi.Production for some of our digitisation work.

I have a lot of experience working with Java web applications and was wondering how I would go about becoming more involved in the development of Goobi, and possibly feedback any enhancements we make to the project.

Also, I am currently in the process of installing a test installation of Goobi.Production (1.6 branch) and I seem to be missing some metadata and script files that are referenced from GoobiConfig.properties. I also wanted to check that this is the branch that's correct to use, and where might I be able to find these files (script_createDirUserHome.sh etc) - I can provide a full list of files if you need it.

Thanks,

Jennie Fletcher.

You're welcome to contribute to the project! We are facing major refactoring demands so we like to see more Java experts hands-on coding. What you would have to do, is to create a personal branch of lp:goobi-production and propose it for merging as soon as your changes are ready. See the Launchpad/Bazaar documentation for this: https://help.launchpad.net/Code, http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/en/

I filed a new bug report regarding the missing script files under https://bugs.launchpad.net/goobi-production/+bug/784584 Please review it, subscribe to it and post any more missing files to the comments. As this is a critical bug for any release I'll fix it as soon as possible by providing sample script files. Thanks for raising the issue.

Regards,
Ralf

If you want to develop Goobi, you have to do some things:

→ Install Bazaar version control system
→ Check out source code
→ Get it to run. You will need the servlet container Tomcat 6. For eclipse, see: http://wiki.goobi.org/index.php/Setting_up_Goobi.Production_as_a_Dynamic_Web_Project_in_Eclipse
→ Add a blue print to document the change you made to the software
→ Do a local commit to your source code (on your hard disk)
→ Upload it to your personal area in Launchpad
→ Add a link between blueprint and your local code branch
→ Submit a merge request

Just give it a try and on any questions, feel free to ask.
