Thank you.  The DSpace Build Cookbook was very helpful.

It was not immediately intuitive that I would need to handle my JAR file dependencies separately from the custom code.  The cookbook pointed me in the right direction on that issue as well.

Hi Brady,

basically, if you can, use the overlays mechanism, which will ease
forward-porting your changes to newer DSpace version.

If you can't, you're making an Addon. This can be a standalone
module/webapp (maven project) or modifications to existing codebase
which you distribute in form of a patch.

Here are some resources you can look at:
