LexEVSThe QA team received the final 6.3 CTS2 tag from Mayo today. 
Report Writer


Term Browser 

There is a 2.9 release deployed to dev right now.  It includes an initial build of the Value Set Tree but not complete.

Produced a tree structured HTML representation of the neoplasm core value set mapping based on the NCI Metathesaurus.

Developed javascript to allow the user to expand the tree derived above one level down from the root.

Produced and distributed a word document describing the methodology for generating the minimal spanning tree covering the concepts in the NCI core neoplasm value set.

Implemented a path enumeration algorithm for deriving simple paths connecting a concept to the root concepts in NCIt.

Refined the algorithm to eliminate the path connecting two core concepts via concepts that are not in the neoplasm core if an alternative path exists.

Term Suggestion Application

NCIm BrowserPutting together scope and schedule.  Only have a couple of items in scope so far.  Mainly the move to 6.4 API but also looking at removing some data fields from the details pages that has been deemed not useful by the EVS group.

 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>
