Hello Daniele,
Sorry I didn't answer earlier. Was a bit busy.
If you wish to contribute to the project, I suggest you get your development environment ready.
This envolves downloading Eclipse 3.2 or later ( http://www.eclipse.org/) and Java 5.0 or later (http://java.sun.com/).
Once this is done, you will need to download a plugin for Eclipse called subversion ( http://subclipse.tigris.org).

Once all this is done, you area ready to develop Java Applications. If you ever had contact with C or C++ or even Pascal, the Java syntax will not be very strange. I suggest you try to develop a simple application in Java just to get to know a bit of the syntax so that you can easily understand the project's code.
You can find some small applications tutorials all over the web. Any of those will be just fine to learn the language. It will take you a much greater time to know the whole API but you'll get used to it. The main reference to the basic API is: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/

Sun also has some nice tutorials that you can find at:
http://java.sun.com/developer/codesamples/platprog.html (Some nice code samples of applications)
http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/edu/os-dw-os-ecl-rcpapp.html (An introduction to Eclipse's applications, the model Archimedes is using)
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-RCP-1/tutorial1.html (The same idea as the previous article)

You will see a lot of mentions to RCP (Rich Client Platform: http://www.eclipse.org/home/categories/rcp.php). This is the framework that evolved from Eclipse to develop any kind of application. This is the framework Archimedes is built over. Meaning you will not only have the Java to learn but also some parts (that are quite simple) of this framework.

If you want some more information about the architecture of the software, you can take a look about this article:
http://nightao.googlepages.com/ArchimedesETX.pdf

At last, when you are confident enough, you should download the software's code at:
https://incubadora.fapesp.br:8043/svn/archimedes/

The new version of the software is being held under the projects called "br.org.archimedes..." so you should download all of those projects to get you a nice overview on how the project works. Once you've done all this, we can start trying to give you some tasks if you want. Of course, if you have any problem or doubt, please contact us.

Friendly,
Hugo
