Mailing Lists

The OpenLaszlo User and Developer lists are mailing lists for the users of the open source OpenLaszlo Platform. The purpose of the lists is to allow members of the OpenLaszlo community to communicate with each other and share solutions to common problems.

The mailing lists are hosted by Laszlo Systems, but Laszlo Systems employees participate in the lists as members of the community, essentially on their own time and in the spirit of the collaborative nature of any open source project. In particular, the lists are not an official support mechanism and you should not expect an answer to any particular question, from Laszlo Systems employees or anyone else.

If you think you've found a bug in OpenLaszlo, please take the time to distill it down to a reproducible test case and file a bug in JIRA. We encourage you to also post about your problem on the appropriate list in case a workaround has been found, but without a filed bug the issue is unlikely to be resolved in OpenLaszlo itself.

If you are working on a commercial product and need a higher level of support than is available from the community, there are companies and individuals who can help you out. Laszlo Systems offers a full range of support services, ranging from incident support to full custom development, and the OpenLaszlo wiki contains a list of consultants for hire.
