Hii,I am Giriraj Sharma, a dedicated GSoc'14 aspirant(3 years’ experience in JavaSE+1.5 year’s experience in JavaEE) from Dept. of Computer Science, National Institute of Technology, HP, India, interested in making valuable contribution to the project JBoss AS Quickstarts : JBoss AS management,services and modules(https://community.jboss.org/wiki/GSOC14Ideas?_sscc=t) listed in JBoss GSoc 2014 ideas Page.
I was initially interested in contributing quickstarts for hibernate ORM with JBoss AS. It was mentioned as a proposed project on the ideas page. I forked jboss-developer/jboss-eap-quickstarts repository from github a few weeks back and I read the guide to contributing to a quickstart (http://www.jboss.org/jdf/quickstarts/get-involved/). I have been actively committing on git repository (https://github.com/jboss-developer/jboss-eap-quickstarts) since past 15-20 days. One of my commit has been merged and my several other(11) commits are under code review. But,I recently came to know that hibernate quickstarts have been removed form GSoc 2014 JBoss project ideas page.The mentors told me that it was listed in GSoc 2014 ideas page because it was copy-pasted from GSoc 2013 ideas page but is not a part of GSoc 2014 ideas.This project is removed in the new modified list of GSoc 2014 ideas.
The project proposal JBoss AS Quickstarts : JBoss AS management,services and modules is still a part of GSoc 2014 JBoss ideas Page.I am really enthusiastic about contributing quickstarts for JBoss AS as it will let me help in understanding the architecture and scripting down the server. I am currently reading through the documentation of JBoss AS Admin Guide https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/Documentation. I have also forked up the wildfly/wildfly repository (wildfly/wildfly · GitHub) and read contribution guide (Hacking on AS7).
Basically, I am a newbie but, an application developer for J2EE technologies. I have used JBoss AS 7 for my past projects but here I shall be dealing with JBoss AS itself. I wish to have a bit of your guidance so as how to start up working upon JBoss AS quickstarts and is the project proposal about working on quickstarts(demo applications) or is it about actually writing code/patches for JBoss AS. Please give me brief details about how I may start up contributing for this project proposal.
