 Mayo/JasonWe have run into multiple issues where the performance on the DEV tier has be a problem due to Mayo not being able to replicate the slow points due to the drastic difference in DEV resources.  We discuss this with the systems team and they requested us to put in a DRT ticket that provides the specs to match the Mayo DEV server.08/30/13  The server resources have been expanded with an addition vCPU and an additional 2GB memory.  Initial tests have shown better performance but the testing is ongoing.

LexEVS 6.2

Submitted a new JIRA item:

[LEXEVS-635] MetaBrowserService getMetaNCINeighborhood method failed.

[LEXEVS-636] LexEVSValueSetDefinitionServices exportValueSetResolution method returns unprocessible InputStream.

    • This appears to be related to an inactive NCIm coding scheme on the DEV and QA servers. Removing this coding scheme on DEV resolved the problem.

Report WriterReviewing the open Feature Requests for feasibility and level of effort.  Also looking at effort for updating CSM module.  Looks like this will be on hold for now. We are currently in the process of moving from Gforge to JIRA.
Term Browser 
Working on the migration to Tomcat deployment.  Found an issue with CSM not being compatible with Tomcat.  Kim is finding a solution for not using CSM jar for deployments.

Re-deployment has been completed and now is working correctly in production. We are currently in the process of moving from Gforge to JIRA.

NCIm Browser
Still waiting for the AppScan to be completed.  There was some delay getting in queue.  It is currently running.
We are also waiting to know if the GitHub migration to the CBIIT channel was completed.  It was supposed to be done last Wednesday.

 7/17/2013The Term Browser deployments using AntHillPro require JAVA 1.6. This would affect the deployments and production environment for the EVS tools.  It sounds like this is going to be a future issue but we should have time to upgrade before it is part of the CBIIT tech stack. Currently working on the JAVA 1.7 upgrade for Term Browser
 7/31/2013We currently have an issue where the browsers are ready to move to the QA tier for testing but due to the dependency of LexEVS 6.1 cannot start the QA testing process.  LexEVS 6.1 does not currently have all the pre-QA qualification to proceed with the deployment to the QA tier.With a hard deadline of Sept. 30 for both the browsers and LexEVS API 6.1 there is concern that there will be time to finish all the testing and deployments on time. This is closed.  The hard deadline was expanded due to factors we cannot control.
