Guidance required for contributing to open source projects

Dear experts,

I am newbie as an application developer.
So far, in my work experience, I have worked in core java/J2ee technologies (struts, Hibernate, restlet, jax-rpc,
jax-ws, jax-rs etc).

And I am willing enrich my knowledge more in SOA and Web Service technologies by contributing to any Open source
projects.

It would be really helpful, if you could suggest any open source projects where SOA and web Services are used and
will also help me to gain more knowledge.

As these technologies are hugely used among many open source tools and I am utterly confused which one should be a
good starting point for someone like me.

Thanks in advance, looking forward to your valuable opinions.

Cheers,
Sam

Hi Sam,
That's a very good question though I never got opportunity doing myself!

What I guess is to pick up beta or any development stage version projects (for example apache site) and start working on it. If you progress on something, update the source code though I'm not sure of how this is done. You can better email administrators or relevant mail groups and get to know. Sorry, my answer may not be helpful.


Cheers,
Naren
