BlackBerry Samples for Java Repository
The Samples-for-Java repository is an area where members of the community can post up their BlackBerry Java sample applications to share with the rest of the world.
All APIs shared in this repository are Open Source under the Apache 2.0 License
To contribute code to this repository you must be signed up as an official contributor.
Each Sample added to the repository should be placed in its own directory. Make sure you name the directory something simple, yet descriptive. Each Sample must also have a README.md file at the root of its directory. This README needs to indicate the Author of the API, devices and OS versions it was tested on, and information about the application and how to use it.
To add new Samples or make modifications to existing Samples:
- Fork the Samples-for-Java repository
- Make the changes/additions to your fork
- Send a pull request from your fork back to the Samples-for-Java repository
- If you made changes to code which you are NOT the owner, send a message via github messages to the Author(s) of the Sample to indicate that you have a pull request for them to review
- If you made changes to code which you own, send a message via github messages to one of the Committers listed below to have your code merged
The code for each of the BlackBerry Samples for Java is managed by the author of the Sample. When a pull request comes in for a specific Sample the Author(s) should be notified by the pull request owner to perform a code review. When the author indicates that the pull request is ready to be merged (via a comment on the pull request) they can then send a message to a committer through github messages to have the changes merged.
If there are more than one Author for a specific Sample, only one Author is required to indicate that the pull request is ready. If there's more than one Sample affected by a pull request, at least one Author from each Sample must code review the pull request and indicate that it is ready to be merged before the pull request can be merged.
If the Author of the pull request is the actual owner of the Sample, then the Author should send a message to a committer via github messages to have their changes merged.
An Author can transfer ownership to another Author by opening up an Issue where both the original Author requests ownership to be transfered to the new Author, and the new Author agrees to take ownership of the code.
The README for the Sample should be updated to indicate the new Author.
Bug Reporting and Feature Requests
If you find a bug in a Sample, or have an enhancement request, simply file an Issue for the Sample and send a message (via github messages) to the Sample Author(s) to let them know that you have filed an Issue.
