    Default Getting started on Kettle development

    Hello to all,

    I've been using kettle for some projects and I'd like to help with the development (btw, with kettle I mostly mean spoon).

    Now I know Java and I have the source code, but I can't seem to figure out where the code for Spoon is and how to build/run it.

    I've search for documentation, but there only seems to be documentation for plugin development.

    So my question is, where can I find the code for Spoon and how do I run it ?


    Cheers !

    Hi Bryan,

    The PDI SDK pages answer this question the code: http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/EAI/...ment+resources

    Just browse to org.pentaho.di.spoon for the Spoon code.

    Once you're done with your changes, create an SVN patch and attach it to the JIRA case that describes the change.
    We'll then take time to review the code and commit it to the codebase.

    If that process goes well and you plan to do this regularly we can give you direct access to the codebase.

    Thanks in advance for any help, we always welcome it.

    Matt

    Hello Matt,

    Thanks for replying.

    I did checkout the Kettle code. There is no spoon package though:

    http://source.pentaho.org/svnkettler...rg/pentaho/di/

    I do see a job and trans package. So how can I run/build the Spoon IDE ? I'm assuming there is a "main" entry point for this somewhere right ?


    Cheers !

    Thanks in advance. You'll find that Kettle is reasonably split up into different smaller parts that are fairly easy to understand.
