The development environment is still in the process of being setup.  The DB environment is now setup and a copy from DataQA has been loaded.  The DB team is not ready to test with the EVS applications once the systems team deploys them.  Next challenge is to be sure the network connectivity is correct and to get EVS developers and operations team SQL access.

Application server has the Tomcat container setup.  Just waiting for the security team to provide the firewall exceptions for SSH access.

Report WriterThere is a possible external users for the Report Writer from EBI.  Gilberto is setting up a meeting to discuss further with them.

We cut a tag for the tech stack update release.  Once the development environment is in place we will test it and then move forward with the tech stack updates on Metathesaurus Browser and Term Form.  Jason will put in a DRT ticket for the container and AntHillPro setup.
Meta Download Validation App
Deployment to production has been completed.  Clint Malone will be putting in the ticket for the URL redirect.
