How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

In general, it's always a good idea to provide as much information as possible when asking your question(s) on the mailing lists. The well-known document by Eric Raymond titled How To Ask Questions The Smart Way provides a very good list of tips for getting an expedient answer to your question(s). If you haven't read this document before we highly recommend it.

Here are a few tips to help us to help you:

  • Which version of Karaf are you using? (and if you are using a SNAPSHOT, which date?)
  • Details of your environment can help too such as
    • operating system
    • JVM version (1.5 or 1.6)
  • If you have an exception, include the full stack trace
