Hi,

i will be given a fairly large project (will be working as an intern) very soon....
it will involve extending an open source bittorrent client to optimise the functionality.....

i would like to prepare myself by getting some basic understanding of what exactly i will be asked to do, ...as i am still quite a java-rookie!

now, i've downloaded the source code....but dont really understand what i'm looking at ...

can someone please tell me how i would embark on this adventure.....what are the first steps, which files/code sections etc are relevant for me....

in fact how do i begin?

How do i proceed?
can anyone maybe give me links to tutorials or guides as to how i can go about this.

thanks

- W.O.

The people who have worked on the particular code in front of you are few and far between. Fewer still are the people who can put the code in front of you together with what you want to do (probably numbering 1, yourself included). Your best bet is to go to the application's web site and see if they have developer documentation or a developer mailing list you can subscribe to. Don't forget that developers are probably working on their own projects and they are likely to tell you to RTFS. There is no substitute for reading and understanding the source code of an app.
