-Opening Apache SIS in an IDE    {#ide}
-======================================
-
-Different SIS branches are available depending on the target platforms (JDK6 versus JDK7
or JDK8, or GeoAPI versions).
-The alternatives are listed in the [branches page](branches.html).
-This section documents how to checkout the trunk for development with Subversion,
-but the same instructions should work for any branch or for Git.
-
-While the primarily SIS build system is Maven, the project provides some IDE configuration
files for developers convenience.
-Before opening the project in an IDE, the source code needs to be downloaded from the source
repository
-and the project built at least once using Maven:
-
-    :::bash
-    svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/sis/trunk sis
-    cd sis
-    mvn install
-
-
-
-NetBeans    {#netbeans}
------------------------
-
-NetBeans can open Maven projects natively. This is the recommended approach for casual working
in a small amount of SIS modules.
-For extensive work on Apache SIS or for work impacting many modules, it may be more convenient
and faster to open Apache SIS as a NetBeans project.
-Such pre-configured NetBeans project is available in the ide-project/NetBeans directory.
-This project will fetch dependencies directly from the .m2/repository local directory,
-and will refer to the resources *.utf files compiled by Maven in the sis-*/target directories.
-Consequently it is important to run mvn install before opening the project
-and after any change in the project dependencies or in the resources.
-
-Users can customize their project configuration by editing the ide-project/NetBeans/nbproject/private/config.properties
file.
-The private directory is excluded by the versioning system, so it okay to put user-specific
information there.
-For example in order to overwrite the default location of the local Maven repository and
to define a system property at execution time,
-one can use:
-
-    :::properties
-    maven.repository = /path/to/my/local/repository
-    run.jvmargs = -DmyProperty=myValue
-
-
-
-Eclipse    {#eclipse}
----------------------
-
-Execute the svn checkout to mvn install commands documented in the beginning of this
section,
-then execute the following steps:
-
-   * Execute mvn eclipse:eclipse on the command line.
-   * Open Eclipse in a new workspace.
-   * Go to _Eclipse_ → _Preferences_ → _General_ → _Workspace_.
-   * Change _Text file encoding_ to _Other: UTF-8_, press _Apply_, then _Ok_.
-   * Go to _File_ → _Import_ → _General_ → _Existing Projects in Workspace_.
-   * Choose the sis directory and import.

-Code formatting    {#formatting}

+Fetching and editing source code    {#source}
+=============================================

-    :::java
-    if (x < xmin) xmin = x;
-    if (x > xmax) xmax = x;
-    if (y < ymin) ymin = y;
-    if (y > ymax) ymax = y;
+Different SIS [branches](branches.html) are available depending on the target platforms.
+Unless working on a SIS port (e.g. to the Android platform), contributors are encouraged
+to work on the SIS branch targeting the most recent JDK platform (currently JDK8):

-Many mathematical operations in a two-dimensional space (or more) have symmetry.
-Formatting the code in a way that emphase their symmetrical nature, for example
-aligning identical terms in columns, can help to understand the overall pattern
-and to identify bugs. The decision to use standard or tabular format is made on
-a case-by-case basis. Of course, tabular format shall not be abused.
-
-
-
-
-SIS uses standard javadoc annotations. The meaning of some tags are refined as below:
-
-  * @since   - the SIS version when the annotated element (class, method, <i>etc.</i>)
was first introduced.
-  * @version - the last SIS version when the code of the annotated class got a significant
change.
-  * @author  - developer name in <var>FirstName</var> <var>LastName</var>
(<var>Organization</var>) format.
-                 A separated @author tag is added for each developer.
-                 The intend is to allow other developers to know to who to ask questions
if needed.
-
-In addition, the sis-build-helper modules provides the following custom javadoc taglets:
-
--------------- | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-@module      | Create links to the module where the class is defined, source code and Maven
artifacts.
-{@include}   | Include the content of a given HTML file below a <h2> section having
the given title.
-{@preformat} | An inline taglet for pre-formatted text. The first word inside the taglet
shall be one of java, xml, sql, wkt, text, math or shell.
-{@section}   | An inline taglet for the title of a new section in the javadoc.
-
-
-
-### HTML elements    {#html}
-
-HTML tags and entities shall be used only when there is no equivalent Javadoc tag.
-For example:
-
-   * Instead of "<code>✎</code>", use "{@code ✎}".
-   * Instead of "a &lt; b &lt; c", use "{@literal a < b < c}".
-   * Instead of "<pre>✎</pre>" for a Java listing, use "{@preformat java
✎}"
-     (this Javadoc tag is specific to Apache SIS — see above table).
-
-
-
-### MathML elements    {#mathml}
-
-The source code occasionally uses MathML for formulas that are difficult to render with only
Unicode characters.
-PNG images are not extensively used for formulas because they are difficult to edit after
creation,
-and their content are invisible to search operations (for example when a variable is renamed).
-For examples of MathML usage in SIS, search for the <math …> XML tag in Java source
files
-(note: there is also legacy {@preformat math …} custom Javadoc tags, but they may be
phased out as MathML adoption increase).
-For an introduction to MathML, see:
-
-   * [A Gentle Introduction to MathML][mathml-dessci] on Design Science
-   * [Working with MathML][mathml-wolfram] on Wolfram Mathematica
-
-MathML is supported natively in Firefox, Safari and Opera.
-Internet Explorer users need to [install a plugin][mathml-plugin-ie].
-Firefox users can optionally install the [fonts for Mozilla's MathML engine][mathml-fonts]
for better results.
-Note that a [JavaScript display engine][mathml-mathjax] is available for all browsers, but
not yet used by SIS.
-
-
-
-### Paragraphs    {#paragraph}
-
-Usages of the <p> tag should be relatively rare.
-Do **not** use <p> for the first paragraph in a package, class or member documentation,
-or for the first paragraph after a </ul>, </ol>, </table>, </blockquote>,
</pre>,
-{@preformat} or {@section} element.
-The <p> tag shall be used only for separating a new paragraph from a previous one.
-In such cases, <p> shall have a matching </p> tag at the paragraph end in
order to form valid HTML.
-
-
-
-
-Avoid using HTML attributes other than class as much as possible.
-Instead, rely on styling. Some HTML tags having a style definition in Apache SIS are:
-
-HTML tag                  | Description
-------------------------- | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-<table class="sis">     | Table with a border, blue headers, light background and
some space between columns.
-<th class="hsep">       | In SIS tables, draw a line on the top border. Used for
drawing table section separators.
-<th class="sep">        | In SIS tables, draw a bright line on the left border. Used
for drawing column separators.
-<td class="sep">        | In SIS tables, draw a bright line on the left border. Used
for drawing column separators.
-<table class="compact"> | Table without border and no space between rows. Used for
lists with columns alignment.
-<ul> and <ol>         | Default list styles without space between items (suitable
for compact lists).
-<ul class="verbose">    | A list style with space between items. Used for lists having
verbose (multi-lines) items.
-<div class="note">      | Indented text with smaller font, used for notes or examples.
-<div class="warning">   | Text in red color, used for warning about probable API
changes.

basis,
-      or set the _Preferences_ - _Editor_ - _On Save_ - _Remove trailing whitespaces_ option.
-  * **Indentation:** Use 4 space indents (except for XML files) and never use tabs!
-    + Use 2 space indents for XML files, because ISO/OGC XML schemas tend to have a very
deep structure.
-  * **Line wrapping:** Use 120-column line width for Java code and Javadoc.
-    Some exceptions to this rule may exist for preserving tabular structures, but should
be rare.

+Configuring Subversion properties    {#svn-config}
+--------------------------------------------------

-Classes naming convention    {#classes-naming}
-==============================================
-Implementations of GeoAPI interfaces usually (but not always) begin with Abstract, Default,
Simple or General prefixes.
-The Abstract prefix is used when a class is abstract according ISO specifications — it
may or may not be be abstract in the Java sense.
-The General prefix is used when an implementation is designed for use in the general case,
-as opposed to other implementations specialized for a fixed number of dimensions or other
conditions.
-Implementations specialized for a fixed number of dimensions are suffixed with 1D, 2D,
3D or 4D rather than being prefixed.
+Subversion can associate properties to each tracked files. Those properties tell to Subversion
+how to handle platform-specific aspects like end-of-line characters, and how to serve the
files
+to web browsers (MIME type, encoding, <etc.>).
+Those properties are typically set when a new file is added, not during modifications.
+Developers can specify default properties for all their Subversion working copies as below:
+
+  * Open ~/.subversion/config in an editor, where ~ is the user home directory.
+  * Set the enable-auto-props value to yes.
+  * Scroll down to the [auto-props] section and add the following lines:

-Background Knowledge    {#knowledge}
-------------------------------------
-
-All contributors arrive to the project with different knowledge bases, some with scientific
-backgrounds, some with a background in computer science, and others with geographic backgrounds

-
-SIS is a library designed to be used by other programmers. To play this role effectively,
-SIS must consider the various ways that users can reuse Java code: not only through object
-instantiation and method calls but also through inheritance. SIS pays special attention to
-accessibility constraints ensuring that only the classes and methods which are offered for
-use are publicly accessible and that these methods are fully and correctly documented in
-
-Contributors are highly recommended to read the book _Effective Java_ by Joshua Block, published
-in its second edition by Addison-Wesley in 2008. The book explains the importance of certain
-elements in the Java language and discusses subtleties of the language and its use.
-Most importantly, the book reveals the full scope a programmer must consider when developing
a code library.

-of special importance to Apache SIS.

-### Mathematical Background    {#math}
-
-SIS frequently deals with complex calculations using relatively simple mathematics of
-trigonometry and matrix algebra. The coordinate operations of the Referencing modules involve
-trigonometric transformations on a flattened ellipsoid of rotation, the image transformations
in
-the Coverage modules and in the Rendering system involve extensive use of Affine transforms,
and
-the Analytic modules often use their own mathematical operations.
-These mathematics cannot be simplified — they reflect the richness of the world around
us.
-
-Affine transformations are not particularly complex but critically important both to the
-geo-referencing operations of the Referencing modules and to the image transformations of
the
-Coverage modules. Affines transform coordinates through translation, scaling, rotations,
and
-shear, though this latter component is used infrequently in the library. Mathematically,
-affine transformations are usually applied as a matrix operation applied to a coordinate
vector.
-There are numerous introductions to affine transformations available on the World Wide Web
since
-the concept is central to all graphics programming.

-
-### The GeoAPI Interfaces    {#geoapi}
-
-SIS is build partially as an implementation of the GeoAPI interfaces. GeoAPI defines a set
-of objects offering particular methods thereby providing an interpretation of the ISO/OGC
-standards in the Java language. GeoAPI therefore defines the core of the model implemented
-by Apache SIS.
-
-GeoAPI can most easily be learned by exploring the [GeoAPI Javadoc][geoapi].

+Classes naming convention    {#classes-naming}
+==============================================
+Implementations of GeoAPI interfaces usually (but not always) begin with Abstract, Default,
Simple or General prefixes.

+  * The Abstract prefix is used when a class is abstract according ISO specifications —
it may or may not be be abstract in the Java sense.
+  * The General prefix is used when an implementation is designed for use in the general
case,
+    as opposed to other implementations specialized for a fixed number of dimensions or other
conditions.
+  * Implementations specialized for a fixed number of dimensions are suffixed with 1D,
2D, 3D or 4D rather than being prefixed.

-### The SIS library modules    {#modules}
+Classes that do not implement an interface are usually not prefixed, even if abstract.

-Contributors should gain a basic understanding of the core library including the separation
into
-modules, the functionality available in the base module, and the functioning of the modules
of interest.
