Term Browser 

Deployment to production of the 2.9.1 Term Browser was completed successfully.

Term Suggestion Application 
NCIm Browser

Modified help.jsp to programmatically insert NCIm application version number and LexEVS version number based on the values set in the configuration file.

Deployment of the 2.7 Metathesaurus Browser to production has been completed successfully.

Triple Store Prototype

Implemented a test program for retrieving all data required for populating the Concept Details page from the NCI Virtuoso triple-store server.

Observed that some SPARQL queries (for example, retrieving associations and inverse associations using owl:ObjectProperty) and ComplexTerm, i.e.,  FULL_SYN) can fail against the Virtuoso triple-store server. Will retest against Stardog and Allegrograph when both servers become available.

Biomarkers Support

Modified the path enumeration algorithm to provide the capability to retrieve Paths to Gene based on asserted or inferred version of the NCI Thesaurus.

 09/10/2015  H H AppScan are taking long periods of time to complete.  For Term browser, the minimum has been 5 days.We are working on both the code base and configuration of the scan to try to improve performance.  We are also looking at open source code scanners that could possibly be used ahead of the AppScan to at least limit the number appscans required.

 7/17/2014Deployment of software, even small upgrades, have been a lengthy process.This especially affects smaller releases in which there are security or bug fixes. The Agile practices migration have been put on hold for now.
 09/10/2014Getting the environment in place for the Mayo trip to NCI.Need to get each of the environment (DEV,QA,Stage) in place before the Mayo trip on September 22nd.  We are currently one week behind.  The impact is that the Mayo developer will be onsite to work on the deployments and the tiers will not be in place. Currently we only have the DEV environment setup for the LexEVS API>
