My First issue TRUNK-5387

good evening every one! I have managed to claim an issue and i have imported its code into eclipse IDE. i thought i had understood what to do on the ticket. But i am now confused.
here is a link to the ticket TRUNK-5387. How can i know more about the ticket because the description is not satisfactory. But i really want to close the ticket. Help me :roll_eyes::roll_eyes:

The description has the expected changes. Reading through the comments will help you to figure out the additional information required to solve the issue. Just in case you have given up on the ticket, you can “unassign” yourself from it.

ok thanks for the help. I understand what i must do but the problem is that the files i am to work with are .vm files. But i have no information of working with .vm files. So i think i should unclaim it. i only know java programming language.

Those .vm files are Apache Velocity templates. You can read up on Velocity on its home page.


As a developer you should keep your mind open to learning new concepts…you won’t be writing only Java code and even if you are you will need a basic understanding of how other concepts interact with your Java software…the start can be tough but continue researching and learn… Kind regards
