LexEVS 6.3

Put in an ARC request for the LexEVS 6.3 and CTS2 documentation server environments.  Pre-ARC meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday.  Put together a list of priorities that the Term Browser has for LexEVS 6.3 in order to be able meet the Term Browser requirements for the 2.7 release.

Report WriterDiscussed a more generalized report writer implementation with Gilberto.  The initial requirements would be a query/download application.   We would start with just a tex file output but could expand later.
Term Browser 

There was an issue found on stage where the NCBO widget does not work due to spaces added to the configuration file.  This is an issue we have seen before on other tiers but were fixed.  The PTE has been fixed so that this should not be an issue in the future.

There was also an issue where ^M characters were introduced to the NCItBrowserProperties.xml file.  This does not appear to cause any issue but we have introduced a fix to ensure there are no future issues.  We are currently awaiting approval to deploy this tag to stage.

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
NCITERM-595Handle coding schemes with multiple namespaces.

Tested the tree extension lexevs-tree-2.1.0.jar in LexEVSAPI 6.3 and observed that the API returns JSON string without populating the namespace. Also, the TreeService API seems to be interfering with coding schemes different from the coding scheme in focus.  Informed Mayo of these issues.


Improved presentation of NCIt role relationships.

Discussed various options for presenting qualifiers and annotations with the user group.

NCITERM-658Migrate to LexEVSAPI 6.3.

Continue to identify the difference between LexEVSAPI 6.2 and 6.3 jars.

 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>
