Upgrade Platform Core Libraries Project

Hello All! I am Nsereko Joshua by name, a student offering a bachelors degree in software engineering, at Bugema University( Uganda ). I have alot of passion in contributing in Gsoc 2020. I would request be given a chance to participate in Gsoc 2020 working on this project. I believe my skills will be better than they are if i get this opportunity,
@mozzy, @sharif, @burke, @dkayiwa I request for any information that can get me familiar with the project. Thanks!

@jnsereko , Thanks for expressing in this Project.

i hope you went through GSoC 2020: Warm up practices for students.
Now initialy this project aimed at Upgrading Spring ,Hibenate ,and Java. But ideally that would be too much to achieve in that short time .
Now it primarily requires upgrading Java from 8 to 11.
you would need to understand a few API changes from java 8 to 11, see this blog and this .
You also need a fundamental understanding of the OpenMRS core API


@mozzy thank you! i had not yet went through the Warm up practices. But i am now going to pass through them. If there is any other requirement for this project, i am eager to check it out.

Hello guys i have tried a little of this project but what i have realized is that it might bigger than what i can handle. May be it requires some one with more experience than me. The fact is that i do not want to start on a project i cant be able to accomplish. :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes: @sharif, @mozzy

hello since that the other that need to be upgrade are in progress does it mean that the only library concern are jdk 5 to 11 and mysql from 5 to 8 version?

its jdk 8 to 11. Java Upgrade is the primary focus of the project. The others would be suplementary

Hello sir ,please sir I whish to know Ifthe is a difference between openmrs core and openmrs plateforme . because I am a little bit confuse

The OpenMRS Platform is the shared platform (the “plumbing”) upon which all distributions of OpenMRS are based call it openmrs reference application.While openmrs core is an patient-based medical record system focusing on giving providers a free customizable EMR. inotherwords openmrs-core is the foundation of all customizable modules in openmrs,openmrs-core api is the base of all modules in openmrs EMR.
