May I suggest that you consider using Soy templates instead of Velocity? Soy templates are used by the newer Atlassian products, and I believe the plan is to use them in new features added to JIRA and Confluence. In any case, Atlassian appears to be moving towards Soy and away from Velocity.

There is a suitable tutorial on using Soy templates in Confluence.

The documentation for Soy templates is published by Google.

If you insist on using Velocity, then the Velocity User Guide will be very handy, as will the Velocity Template Overview for Confluence.

Oh yes, I can recommend that tutorial on Soy templates ;)

Full source code is available for it here:

Generally, you'll want to create a plugin to bundle all your code together and make it interact. Your other questions mention Confluence, so I'd start at

Even if this is not the right approach for your answer, the process of working through writing a plugin will teach you the basic stuff you need to understand to write code for Confluence, especially how java and velocity interact

thanks both of you i will try
