I’ve added you to the jsword-devel mailing list. The password is mailed in clear text on the first of every month. So don’t using one that is important.

JSword is located at GitHub and BibleDesktop is hosted at CrossWire using SVN.

I use Eclipse to develop. Others use NetBeans or some other IDE. We’ve got Maven integration, which I don’t use, so I can’t vouch for it. Chris Burrell set that up. We do a nightly build on the CrossWire servers and run automated tests.

The BibleDesktop code is in Swing. It’d be great to replace the browser component with JavaFX. Perhaps more.

Also consider STEP from Tyndale. This is another frontend, more recent, that uses an embedded webserver to serve Books aka modules.

In His Service,

I'd like to subscribe to the mailing list for JSword Developers, and was wondering if I could get some more information on how the development for JSword works. I was wondering what system you use to run your nightly builds, and if you pull the code you have and test it every night, (or exactly how often you run nightly builds). I am also looking at the interface for BibleDesktop, and am wondering if you provide the code for the graphical interface, and where I could find it. I'd be interested in experimenting with the GUI code.
