Hi Bill,

I am sorry - My question: "How do I contribute to Jakarta EE as an individual committer?" could have been unclear, while considering the plethora of work that happens in the Jakarta EE ecosystem!

As a developer, my intention behind the question was to know - How can I contribute to Jakarta EE project (not Jakarta EE website project - because I presumed that it was developed already but the content on the website is regularly managed).

TheÂJakarta_EE WikiÂhas links to almost everything about Jakarta EE. I find the following links to be helpful (with the additional info below) in understanding and getting started towards contributing to Jakarta EE.

Links

More

Additional Info
Jakarta EE:
1. What is the project about?
2. What is the delivery plan/timeline?
3. What has happened/been completed so far?
4. What is in progress?
5. What is pending?
6. Mailing list

Each Project:
7. Same 1-6 for each project

Regards,
Bharath

All of the projects should have a CONTRIBUTING.md file, and projects should update it as appropriate. So if someone is looking to contribute to a specific project, that should be the place to start, and the file can have lots of project-specific information about how to contribute.

But my impression was that we were being asked a more general question of "how do I contribute to Jakarta EE?" That's a much larger question with a more complex answer, and it's not clear that any one project, even the Jakarta EE platform project or the Jakarta EE web site project, is the right place to put the answer to that question. It's not clear to me that someone asking that more general question would expect to find the answer in a CONTRIBUTING.md file in any of those places.

I think having a page with all the advice and links we've collected would be good, and putting it in a central place with links from many other places seems appropriate, including links from many of the CONTRIBUTING.md files for many projects.

Also, I agree that the current Jakarta_EE page on the wiki is way too busy to serve as an answer to this question. The "how to contribute" page could be linked from this cover/index page. And if someone could redesign this cover page to be more useful, that would be great. It's a wiki, go for it!

What developers expect to find is a CONTRIBUTING.md file which is short and concise. The wiki page is one click too far away and much too loaded.

Hi All,

the wiki I initially put together is available for a while

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Jakarta_EE

I have already put the link of the above wiki to the GitHub wiki

https://github.com/jakartaee/jakarta.ee/wiki

Please have a look!

Thanks,

Tanja

In response to Markus's point, I suggest on the page of https://github.com/jakartaee/jakarta.ee, add a link to the wiki Tanja is going to create. In this way, developers can easily access it as well. Multiple land pages points one central place.

Hello all,

I would suggest we use this wiki, and collect / document information there.

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Jakarta_EE

we can do that collectively.

What do you think?

Can we create a page titled with "How to get involved in Jakarta EE" and list all of the useful info from Amelia, Ed and Kevin?

I think this will help someone in the similar situation as Bharath and Omos.

I'm not sure what you already know so I'll start from the beginning -- this is in addition to what Reza and others have already suggested ...

As Amelia has written, the basic home for Jakarta is: https://jakarta.ee

I would also recommend you have a look at the Eclipse "Get Involved" page, to learn about participation at Eclipse Foundation.

If you already know about all the packages and APIs in Java EE, great. If not, there are many references. Just Google "Java EE Tutorial", or "Java EE Architecture" and pick something that looks accessible for you.

Jakarta EE has many separate sub-projects. Find one or more that interest you, from the EE4J project page.

This may be enough to get you started. If you want more, continue reading...

If you want notifications from Eclipse, you will need to create an Eclipse account and provide your contact details. Use this form to create an Eclipse user account.

With your Eclipse account, you can subscribe to any of the sub-project's developer e-mail lists (you can find these on this page, most of the Jakarta EE lists, include the key 'ee4j' or 'jakarta'). I'd encourage you to at least join the jakarta.ee-community mailing list, but if you have specific project interests, by all means, please sign up for any developer list that looks interesting to you.

Each sub-project has a collection of GitHub repositories. These are listed in the project's "Developer Resources" tab (here's an example).

You can Follow (click the repository star, or click the "Watch" button) any of the project repositories at GitHub Eclipse EE4J organization. You will need a GitHub user ID to get notifications. Much of the chatter about changes happens via issues at GitHub. If you really want to see what's happening in a project, you should watch the respective repositories, in addition to subscribing to the e-mail lists mentioned above.

In addition to joining discussions on e-mail lists, you can contribute by filing issues at GitHub. Issues are filed against the relevant GitHub repository.

If you want to actually work with code and submit pull requests, you need to fill out the Eclipse Contributor Agreement. Without this, you cannot submit any code, or work with any of the non-code resource (web-pages, documentation, etc.).

Once you have demonstrated familiarity with a project, you can ask someone on the project's committer team to nominate you, to become a committer and there will be an election process. See Wayne Beaton's article about committer elections, here. (Wayne's blog might be something you want to subscribe to as he often provides insight and guidance about things going on at Eclipse.) After that -- you might decide you want to take on a Project Lead role -- you do that by getting someone to nominate you for Lead (it's much the same as the committer election).

If there is more I can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask.

If I may suggest so, please follow the Java EE Guardians Twitter account. Now that things can finally move forward the group will begin grassroots coordinating Jakarta EE community work sooner or later (hopefully in conjunction with or led by vendors interested in seeing Jakarta EE move forward as well).

Rest assured folks like yourself are very much needed and valued.
