Anonymous SVN (Subversion)

The JANINO code repository is accessible through anonymous SVN. You have to check out the following projects:



If you want to contribute (i.e. commit files to the JANINO code repository), turn to me.


The following guidelines must be obeyed by all contributors.


Stick to the existing formatting style:

  • Always use four blanks to indent. NEVER use TABs.
  • Fold long lines like this:

  • Long lines of code are not a shame if they are properly folded and thus perfectly readable.
  • If a piece of code is used only once, don't put it in a method.
  • If a piece of code is used more than once, put it in a method.
  • Prefer simple techniques over elegant, but complicated ones. E.g. don't define complex type hierarchies if a simple alternative exists.
  • Don't comment the obvious.
  • Comment everything that is not obvious. E.g., comment briefly what the following ten complex lines of code do. Write useful JAVADOC for every public class and member.
  • Don't make changes unless there is a good reason. E.g. don't reformat portions of code. Keep in mind that someone someday has to merge this code.
Version Control
  • Be careful when committing. Know SVN; know what you're doing. Commit only code that compiles and works.
  • Never commit into the main branch; this is the despot's domain!
  • Discuss with the despot before creating branches.
  • Write unit tests for everything you code. "tests/src/" is a good starting point.
  • Use the existing unit tests to verify that you didn't break anything - run "AllTests".
  • No labels
