Developers are asked to comply with the following development guidelines. Code that does not comply with the guidelines should not be committed. It should be our aim to fix all of the exceptions to these guidelines prior to a release.
Please follow the Maven
Code Style Conventions.
As part of the maven
build process, style checking is performed by the Checkstyle plugin,
using the properties specified in
Committed code should generate no Checkstyle errors. One thing
that Checkstyle will complain about is tabs included in the source code.
Please make sure to set your IDE or editor to use spaces instead of tabs.
Committers should make sure that svn properties are correctly set on files added to the repository. Please read the Committer Subversion Access document and set your svn client with this properties file: svn-eol-style.txt
