There a multiple channels from where support for Jolokia can be obtained. Bugs are tracked via GitHub, questions should be preferably posed in the Jolokia Forum. Thanks to ConSol* we are able to provide professional support in various ways for Jolokia, too.
On the other hand, the are ways for supporting the development of Jolokia, too. You can contribute code and bug-fixes via GitHub (prefered) or with financial support (donations via Pledgie or flattring Jolokia).
We are always looking for volunteers to enhance Jolokia. If you would like start to participate, we suggest the following way:
Please note, that all the contributed code must be licensed under Apache License Version 2 and you must sign-off the contribution (see above).
We occassionally blog on http://labs.consol.de about various topics (1-2 posts per month). There are interesting use cases how to setup JSR-160 connectors for JBoss and Weblogic, what is the best way for configuring Nagios with check_jmx4perl but also about things like Java Mail mysteries. If you are interested in Jolokia stuff only, subscribe to the Jolokia RSS feed. Otherwise, with this RSS Feed you get them all (and from my co-workers as well).
If you like the software and want to spread the word, we have some quite some cool T-Shirts, Baseball Caps, Coffee Mugs, ... over there in our merchandising shop.
Thanks to ConSol*, we are able to offer professional support and consulting. I.e. we do (and already have done for jmx4perl with quite some success):
Please contact me (either per mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our contact form) if you are interested in a concrete offering or for a reference.
So, that was it for the plug ;-)
Jolokia is free software, released under the business friendly Apache License. That's mostly because I believe that open source software is the real driving force behind software innovation and I highly appreciate the fine pieces of open source software engineering I had the luck to use in my daily work. I love this.
Nevertheless, if you want to support the development of Jolokia (it is still a hobby project) and you like this software you can flattr it.
