Term Browser 

Testing on QA tier has been completed for the Term Browser 2.9.2 release.  Test report was approved and we have permission to deploy to stage.  The stage deployment request has been submitted.

Working on the 2.10 scope, this includes Java 8 upgrade, improvements in the logging, and a view in hierarchy bug fix so far.

Performed trouble-shooting on the broken hierarchy and view-in-hierarchy pages on DEV.

    • The preliminary finding indicates that there could be a data or configuration issue. The LexEVS API was unable to identify the coding scheme with a name, NCI_Thesaurus, and a version, OWL2TestAnyURIandProcessCP.
    • Further investigation revealed that the namespace of entities in the NCI Thesaurus were set to “Thesaurus”, instead of “ NCI_Thesaurus”, causing  some API methods to fail.
    • The Mayo team and the Operations team will resolve the issue by declaring “Thesaurus” an equivalent coding scheme to “NCI_Thesaurus” in the manifest file.

Started to perform trouble-shooting on a JSONException relating to a node in view-in-hierarchy tree failed to expand issue.

 09/10/2015  H H AppScan are taking long periods of time to complete.  For Term browser, the minimum has been 5 days.We are working on both the code base and configuration of the scan to try to improve performance.  We are also looking at open source code scanners that could possibly be used ahead of the AppScan to at least limit the number appscans required.

 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>
