Test early releases

We often do some Alpha and Beta releases to bring new features to you early and catch some nasty bugs or design issues. Do some experiments with the releases or switch to the versions in your projects just to see if everything still works smoothly.

Contribute code

Before you can contribute code, you should setup you environment for developing Blaze-Persistence!

Quick setup

Since we are working on GitHub you should start by forking Blaze-Persistence and cloning that repository.

git clone
cd blaze-persistence

Blaze-Persistence uses Maven so make sure you have a current version installed. You can build the project with the default profiles

mvn clean package

Development should be possible with any IDE but is probably easiest with IntelliJ since the Core team also uses that.
