If you would like to contribute to Seam or Weld by translating the Reference Documentation into your native language, please refer to the Translation Guide. The Reference Documentation is composed in DocBook and the build plugin supports for internationalization.

Since the Reference Documentation is composed in DocBook, we ask that when you edit the documents or create patches, you follow the DocBook Formatting Guide.


We maintain a collection of Frequently Asked Questions that is regularly updated. Please search this database first before asking questions on the user forum.
