If there's a feature that you'd like to see added to JTOpen, consider becoming a part of the JTOpen development process. Since JTOpen is an open source project, it's easy to get involved. Read the development overview below for more info on how the JTOpen project works.
If you would like to contribute your valuable time and code to the project, please see the To-Do list for a list of work items that are currently open.
There are generally two types of submissions: bug fixes and new function. For bug fixes, it is easy enough to post to the JTOpen web forum, Jitterbug database, or send an email to the developers and/or Core Team. We are always grateful for any bug reports (and especially fixes for said bugs) that our users can provide.
All code submitted to the JTOpen project is submitted under the IBM Public License. Currently, the process for submitting new function is to send an e-mail to the Core Team saying you would like to donate your Java source code to the project, including a brief description of the function it provides. Assuming the function fits in with the general "accessing OS/400 or i5/OS data and resources from a client" ideology, we will likely accept what you have to offer, especially if it deals with any of the items on our To-Do List.
You must send an e-mail to the Core Team a signed JTOpen Contributor License Agreement before your code is accepted.
