You are totally new to the Code Exchange platform and would like to know what it is about? You already know Code Exchange, but would like to have one document summarizing all the different questions and tutorials?
That's the purpose of this blog. I have structured the content in 3 levels and added additional information at the end.
Whenever I have additional material for one of the three levels I'll add them to this blog so that you can use this blog as kind of a compendium for Code Exchange.
Level 1 (Basics)
What is Code Exchange?
The article Code Exchange in a nutshell gives you a good explanation about what Code Exchange is and how it was build.
How can I participate in Code Exchange?
The blog How to join the Code Exchange area on SCN decribes how you can join the platform and how you can start your own projects.
Level 2 (The Details)
How can I access the code repository of a project?
The blog Code Exchange How-To: accessing the code repository of a project
explains you how you can get your hands on the code of a project.
How can I provide feedback to a project?
Code Exchange Tutorial: Raising issues on a project explains how you can raise issues on a project and how you can track them.
How to join a project and how to manage project members?
In the Code Exchange Tutorial: Managing Project Members you'll get explained on how to join a project and how you can manage the members of your project.
How can I create my own project?
Creating your own project on Code Exchange explains to you how you can create your own project on Code Exchange.
How can I connect SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio with the Code Exchange subversion repository?
Follow the instructions in the video podcast SDN code exchange video part 2: Hands on code to understand how you can read/write code from a code exchange project with SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio. Don't forget to read the comments, too, as they give some additional help in setting up the Subclipse plugin properly if you work behind a firewall.
Level 3 (For The Experts)
How can I use the expert view of a project?
The blog The Code Exchange "expert view" for project members shows you a video explaining what kind of functionality the Code Exchange "expert view" provides to the members of a project.
What is an Add-On?
Many questions came up about the meaning of an "Add-on". The blog SAP Community Developer License: Is my prototype an Add-on? tries to address those questions and to bring more clarity on the term "Add-on".
