Jodd is nothing without contributions from the user community. There are many ways to contribute. We are constantly working on the software and documentation, so it's a good idea to contact the team to avoid duplicating effort.
One of the traditional weak points of open source software is the documentation. Any help with this aspect of the project will be welcomed with open arms, or at the very least with open email clients!
We are working on examples of using Jodd, but we can always do with more.
If you want to request a new feature you can either make a request through the issue tracker or by sending a message to the development team. The benefit of any new features will be discussed.
If you have a new feature request, then we'll listen extra hard if you show us how it works. A new feature might be best implemented as a patch to an existing class or as a new class. The Jodd API contains many extension points that allow new functionality to be integrated into the frameworks. We care about testing, so if you send us some code without any tests we will probably ask you to write the tests as well before we add it to the codebase.
