Development Documentation

The following documentation is about developing LSC itself - not a LSC synchronization task. Make sure you've read all the general documentation before continuing here!

Working environment

As well as the general Requirements, you need some extra tools to hack LSC - make sure you get these set-up.

You should follow our defined code style.

Java API for LSC-core

The JavaDoc is generated from comments in LSC code. It needs a lot of improvement, all comments in code are very welcome!

This can be very useful to get a function name to call from SyncOptions in the configuration file (see AbstractBean, AD, ScriptableJndiServices, DateUtils…)

It is updated nightly based on the SVN trunk.

Development tools

Running tests

Tests are run through Maven.

Run all tests:

  mvn test

Run one test, named MyTest (note: don't put in the classpath here, write MyTest not org.lsc.MyTest!):

  mvn -Dtest=MyTest test

Don't run tests:

  mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true someOtherTarget
