Mapping Tool

Mapping Tool vs "requirements"

Being able to persist mappings opens many options for functionality

Make dual persistance? - file based and secure database.  Only certain people could write to our database.  Others could work on our interface and save locally. 

Possibility of distributing tool, then allowing submissions on mappings

Possible multiple security levels allowing individual workspaces and submission privileges

Zulu Open JDK
Likely no issues.  Any experience with them?


GDC demo.  Others?

  • Discussion of CPTAC demo

  • Will forward when sure
