Discussion items


Java 17
  • Migration to Java 17
    • Followup Jan 19
    • Learned OS and Tomcat due for upgrade as well
      • We want no responsibility for this - we are agnostic
      • Too many managers and not enough techs involved
    • Java 17 installed on Dev
      • jconsole not fully supported by Corretta
    • Still need Tomcat updated
      • Can we update ejb ourselves

Email/Contact Us
  • Programmatic options
  • CRM to filter messages
    • Would be a service that sets up a queue of real issues
    • "High noise, low signal"
    • Cost? $5-30/user.  What is a user?
  • Inventory public facing pages for email address
    • Can we get rid of Contact Us page?
    • Send email to user to confirm before sending onwards to final target?
  • Source appears to be the Contact Us page, as it is being sent to both NCIThesaurus and NCICBIIT
    • A lot is coming from an .ru address
    • We have a captcha on that page
  • Check if we can drop the Contact Us form?  The page would exist but the form portion would be gone. 

Production NCI Terms
  • Still multiple issues on Prod
    • Scott creating Jira issues as items identified
    • Possibly check email archives for previous logs

  • J console up and running on Dev
    • Additional libraries needed to be added to Corretta
    • Testing can start now - stress testing using Selenium

    • Possibly people walking the hierarchy - Hierarchy pages seeing lots of traffic

System migration
  • Prod to begin next week - will be full server
    • Have begun configuring the back end
    • Jenkins exists but is having minor config issues
    • Lot of policy shuffling and documentation slowing things down
  • DataQA after Prod
    • database on machine - migrate first?

    • Other apps follow DB - determine if needs to be co-located
    • Does script need to be updated?
