I am a last year universit Student and this year I have to develop the "final project" as conclusion to my course, of computer engineering. My tutor gave the idea of helping in a open source project, as that wuold give me a real expirience in software developing.
I have been following the emails since january, and I have looked the project road map and the hole site. We thought about developing one or more Protocol Services, as named in the road map. Than, I hava asked Emil about my professor idea and he showed himself very interested.
Some doubts I Had:
About the protocol services I would like to work on, they would be,
without order of preference: SIP, Gadu Gadu, Jabber and MSN, althoug I
realy don't know this Gadu Gadu nor Jabber. As a university
discipline, i would have to write some documentation (requirements,
design, a test plan, etc...), no doubt a good idea for the project in
general and not only for me.
When it says implement Protocol Service SIP, what does it meant?
Shall we use other frameworks like JAIN SIP or other, or shall it be
an implementation in OSGi without using these framework??? I
understand it shall be a bundle, but using the exinting frameworks,
that i don't know.
About contributing with patches and fixes, where or how should I
start?? By doing it I know it will be easier to do contribute with
real code implementation. I looked at the site http://java.net, there
is a lot of open issues, but I don't know in which one(s) could I try
Thank you for your attention,
