JIRA Issues

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
NCITERM-754NCIt hierarchy breaks on OWL2 load.

Performed trouble shooting on the broken hierarchy views and concluded that the issue is related to a failing LexEVS TreeService method.

NCITERM-702Upgrade to JAVA 8.

Updated jars in the browser libs to make them compatible to LexEVS6.5.0:

    • Replaced junit-4.10.jar by junit-4.12.jar
    • Updated sdk-web-framework.jar, sdk-core.jar, lexevsapi64-beans.jar, sdk-client-framework.jar, lexevs-client-framework.jar, lexevs-core.jar, lexbig.jar, sdk-ws-framework.jar, and lexevsapi64-orm.jar.
    • Added commons-httpclient-3.1.jar.

Tried to execute a test program and encountered the following exception: org.springframework.beans.NotWritablePropertyException.

The Mayo team examined the problem and responded that the configuration file, application_client_config.xml has been changed.

Successfully rerun the test program using the updated configuration file and jar files.

NCITERM-756Make the NCIt Synonym sorting case-insensitive.Implemented.

 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.


 #Opened DateDescriptionImpactAssignedStatus
 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>
