How to Contribute

Contributions to the project can take many forms:

** Document missing features ** I won't even pretend to understand the XML/XSD semantics completely so there is a good chance I missed something. You can help by submitting examples of XML (with the according schema) which soapfish currently can not handle. Ideally you'd write a unit test which clearly demonstrates the failure.

Please try to minimize the sample as much as possible. I know this can be time-consuming but otherwise another developer has to do it, taking away precious development time.

** Implement missing features ** Well, of course that's most helpful.

Some advice about the order in which new features should be implemented:

  1. Ensure that you can express the XSD schema using the classes from soapfish.xsdspec. This is the actual schema representation without any semantic sugar.
  2. Build your schema in soapfish.xsd elements which is the high-level API. Try to build the object graph as you need.
  3. Ensure that the assigned values in the object graph can be parsed and serialized to XML.
  4. Implement XSD generation using your object graph.
  5. Implement code-generation based on a pre-built XSD representing your use-case.
