LexEVS 6.3

Found an issue with specific concepts View in Hierarchy.  Mayo investigated and found that it is a complex resolution and expected to be a slow.  However, not the amount of time we are seeing on the Stage tier.  Further investigation is needed.  We put in a tracker to do that investigation.

Mayo is finishing up the 6.3 PTE's and should be releasing the tag on Wednesday.

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.

Provided technical support to a researcher at the University of Michigan who would like to set up a local terminology server using LexEVS. The term browser will be used to access terminology data from a local MySQL database through the LexEVS distributed API service (lexevsapi62.war) running on the same Tomcat server hosting the term browser.

Ran the appscan to test to see if the new appscan software fixed out slow scan issues. It did not apparently work. It crashed after 45% completion and then almost immediately again after it was restarted.

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

Distributed a markup of the design to the user group for comment. (Note: The visited concept link will also appear on the main menu bar if the visited concept cart is not empty.)

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.

 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>
