Fall 2007 Independent Study

Welcome to the Fall 2007 HFOSS Independent Study!



An inter-mural team of students from Trinity College, Wesleyan University, Connecticut College will work independently and cooperatively to develop material to support teaching a course on open source software development. At the same time, individual participants will continue software development on Sahana and OpenMRS. The team will also develop the new "Humanitarian FOSS Directory" website.


  1. 2 Start with downloading one or more of the different versions of Eclipse (EasyEclipse, PHPEclipse, and EclipseClassic with PHP plugin) and then try to download and install Sahana in Eclipse through CVS and see if you are able to edit the code, inspect the database and build the HelloWorld module.

Now, write down the step-wise instructions for installing and getting Sahana to work.
