Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
LEXEVS-852The buildJsonPathFromRootTree method returns JSON string with no namespace.Submitted this JIRA ticket.

Improved presentation of NCIt role relationships.

Prepared power point slides to show various options available for presenting annotations for role and association relationships as well as property qualifiers.

NCITERM-658Migrate to LexEVSAPI 6.3.

Tested the latest tree extension jar in the v6.3 RC and identified two issues. First, the paths to roots were found to contain concepts that do not belong to the NPO coding scheme; secondly, the namespace of concepts contained in paths to roots are not found in the JSON string returned by the API.  The Mayo team will investigate.

NCITERM-660UI Testing Utility.

Tested mapping search API and observed that the iterator returned by the API remains broken in v6.3 RC - it will not advance. The Mayo team will examine the issue in their next Agile Sprint.
