I have encountered an issue with OpenJPA and have fixed it in the

OpenJPA source code. How do I get the changes into OpenJPA?

  • Create a JIRA issue that describes the changes you've made (you'll need an Apache JIRA account to do this).
  • Check out the OpenJPA source code and make your changes.
  • Create test cases to validate your changes. Here are some useful tips and guidelines on how to develop a test case to contribute to OpenJPA repository.
  • 'svn add' any new files.
  • Run 'mvn test -Dtest=' to validate your change. You need to specify the test to run by its simple name without package name.
  • Run the checkin tests by running 'mvn test' for any possible regression. This should take 20-50 minutes or so depending on the release branch.
  • Check out the Found a Bug page for more details on creating and submitting patches.
  • Wait for a committer to review and check in your changes.
