LexEVS 6.3

While testing the remote API using the Term Browser we found an issue with the Mapping iterator not working.  It was determined that this would not be fixable in the 6.3 release and will be documented in the 2.6 Term Browser release notes.

Need a decision on where this functionality is going to go to start creating trackers and scope document.

Term Browser Had a discussion with Mayo and operations team discussing the current configuration of the Browsers and LexEVS.  It was determined that there should not be any compatibility issues with the current 2.6 browser running on LexEVS after the 6.3 deployment.  The browser would essentially be still running on 2.6 as the current components needed will not be removed.

It was determined that a 2.6 release will be needed when 2.7 Term Browser is deployed.  This will mostly be for the LexEVS 6.3 compatibility.

JIRA Issues

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
NCITERM-623Link to Value Set Query from a Value Set Term.

Completed the design. Distributed a file containing the screen-shots of the proposed design to the user group.

NCITERM-621Link to the Value Set GUI from the Value Set Header Concept Page.

Completed the design. Distributed a file containing the screen-shots of the proposed design to the user group.

NCITERM-668PDQ Definitions not correctly formatted.

Performed preliminary trouble-shooting and observed that the root cause is likely related to the missing definition source property qualifier. The browser uses this qualifier to identify PDQ definitions. 

NCITERM-665Add View Mapping button to the Mapping Search Results Page.

Completed the design.

LEXEVS-829Mapping extension iterator delivers incorrect or infinite number of next() values.

Currently, the mapping extension iterator works under local mode, but not distributed mode. The Mayo team believes it is a data issue and will explain how to use a SQL insert statement to fix the equivalent namespaces in mapping coding schemes. Will retest the API when this data issue is resolved on NCI DEV.

LEXEVS-913Establish and execute on backwards compatibility for 6.3.

Tested the new LexEVSAPI 6.3 release candidate (dated 5/08/2015) and identified that for LexEVS 6.3 to be backward compatible, the server needs to have the lexevs-tree-2.1.0.jar placed in the runtime/extension folder.
