8:00 – 4:00

  • Checked in with John W. So far it looks like the only thing to do next is to arrange the details hierarchy within columns. We’ll meet on Monday to make the changes, since Pat is not in today.
  • Going to try and build Visibility2 only using MvnAssist – getting very close. Library projects build in maven, but not Flexbuilder, and applications build (and link to repo SWCs) but the regular controls don’t seem to be available.

  • Ugh. Rain.
  • Sent a response back to Mike K, asking him to look at adding thresholds and status displays to the trend widget.
  • Testing the fixes from yesterday, then burning a disk
  • Roles still isn’t quite right – fixed. The recursive sort was checking to see if there were children first before evaluating if the current node met the conditionsl
  • Verify that selecting a new table clears the query string – yep

7:30 – 4:00

    • Change the classification banner to be sett in the setupxml file – done
    • Add “Clear Query” Button to the details page – done
    • Force the parent to be selected if the child is in in tree view (maybe set square gray?) – done

    • Roles can’t be updated from Manager App – fixed?
    • Need to have <node type=”value> elements inside <node type=”folder”> elements. Which means that we needto look up the tree until we hit a column – done

  • Spent most of the day at S2f. Prepped for the demo – basically building up the XML tree, then the meeting started late, then the meeting took forever. Pat seems happy though. Here’s a list of things to fix:

    • Change the classification banner to be sett in the setupxml file
    • Add “Clear Query” Button to the details page
    • Force the parent to be selected if the child is in in tree view (maybe set square gray?)
    • “Set Query Builder is not setting the table in Basic, Details and Advanced
    • Roles can’t be updated from Manager App
    • Need to have <node type=”value> elements inside <node type=”folder”> elements. Which means that we needto look up the tree until we hit a column
    • Make sure that Validate clears the query tree
  • Dong has everything but the communication with the corporate repo working…

  • Morning meeting with John W and Mike C about prodicing data that Pat likes. Mike should have the new format for me by this afternoon. I’ll ingest tomorrow morning.
  • Gave up on trying to get FlexBuilder to show the MvnAssist plugin. Going to try to use the FlexBuilder plugins within a new Eclipse instance. The nice thing is that this should let the whole project live in one editor. Done and working

Phil 10.21.2009

7:30 – 5:00

  • Deployed new version. Checked to see that the XML could be modified in the details view, but didn’t do a full change, since the tables will probably change soon
  • Had a talk with Mike C. He should have the new data running soon
  • Tried to get FlexBuilder to recognise the MvnAssist plugin.
    • Tried dropping  the jar in the plugin directory – nope
    • Tried dropping the jar in the Users/phil.feldman/Documents/FlexBuilder 3/configuration/plugins directory – nope
    • Tried wrappingthe plugin in a feature and then placing that into an update site, which FlexBuilder connected to and loaded, but the plugin does not show under the “Views…” popup

7:30 – 4:30

  • Meeting with Anne
  • Helped get Tom up and running. I think he’s there
  • Working on ColumnQuestions – pretty much done
  • Burned a disc

  • Hey! It’s not raining!
  • Had a meeting with John W. and Mike C. to work out the Pat-compatible data format.
  • Imported Mike’s changes
  • Starting on query building in the ColumnQuestions widget. Done. Seems to work well enough to be the new basic query. Will deploy to laurelDemo and verify tomorrow. If it’s good, it’ll go to the Fort in the afternoon
  • Dong is making good progress on the MvnAssist widget
  • Tom is making newbie mistakes as expected, and getting the hang of things

Mike 10.18.09

  • Spent several hours fighting with svn to get IngestManager to build, eventually just deleted and redownloaded
  • Started work on new TrendWidget for graphing numeric data versus time
  • Created a new super class called WidgetBase to be the parent class of both Trend and Query widgets.  This will contain some of the remote object code, exporting images and excel, and possibly more in the future.  For now TrendWidgets don’t query the database but they probably will eventually.
  • Fixed a bug in DynamicPanel caused by going from minimized to maximized: some buttons wouldn’t show up

  • Need to write up Anne’s bullets – done

  • Finish ColumnQuestions – done up to the point that the query gets built
  • Add the ability to set the banner text in the setupxml
  • When loading a stored query by another user, was unable to save a question. Fixed. The saved query occasionally had double quotes. Wrote a filter to trap them
  • MSTSC works *much* better than VNC!
  • Helped Tom with getting his environment set up

Phil 10.15.2009

  • Meeting with the S14 folks, that I think went well
  • Sent Nick M an email trying to set up a meeting
  • Showed Pat how to get some data with the tool

  • Wrote up project status for Brian
  • Sent Mike my thoughts on a “Trend” component of the visualizer
