7:30 – 4:00 (about 2.5 hrs on FP)

  • Got a markup on the documentation back from JW

  • Tried to get a new badge, but the system was down
  • Went home and watched my granite counters come in
  • Working on Jython
  • Adding censor. Need to handle parsing comments. Grrr. Done, aftour a detour through regex land. No idea why this didn’t work: ^sMyStrings. Had to make two separate tests, one for the beginning of the line, one for everything else.
  • Bespin (web-centric development) is coming along:

  • Working on moving scripting framework from sandbox to development – done. Had to upgrade from Jython 2.5.0 to 2.5.1 to work with the javax.script package.
  • Added junit to the ScriptRunner class. What’s happening to me?!
  • Need to add some hooks for slide shows
  • Wrote up a description of current Feldman Project work for Mike Fortier
  • Talked to Dong about the scripting engine. We came up with the idea of a “censor” that would only allow access to specified classes, or even prevent all class access, while placing the allowed “from” clauses in before the code runs…
  • Need to see how to read and publish to URLs.

Dong 02.23.2010

  • Had a meeting with Anne G – she’d like to write an (marketing-style) article about VISIBILITY. Also, she really likes the idea of slide shows. I’m thinking that these could be stored in the user’s profile XML?
  • Talked to Anita Komlodi about PhD program
  • 2:00 demo at Infotek
  • Breaking out some of Visibility. Utils and DBaccess? Basically the generalized stuff that can be used on other projects
  • Need to add some interfaces to Jython that are set by a properties file
    • Read data from somewhere (i.e. LDAT)
    • Create/Delete/Modify tables – will need some user protections
    • Add data to tables
    • Read from tables
    • Write XML to a named location

8:00 – 4:00

  • Terrible traffic today in the neighborhood. Scohol is open on time again
  • Talked to Chris DeVito (Thom’s mom) about building a database that would indicate smuggling flows from documents in the public domain. She’s going to get us a point of contact
  • Demo this morning – need to put in some real (looking) data and re-demo soon
  • Back to Jython. Got some good interprocess communication going!
  • Got a return call from Anita Komlodi (410-455-3206) Hall back tomorrow at 9:30 re HCI PhD

Dong 02.22.2010

  • Alert interface working. Currently just update the timestamp for now. Actual email/scripting interface need to be added.
  • deployed the DBFormBuilder to laureldemo, but database doesn’t want to behaving; straight select sql does not work….
  • demo
  • fixed a bug failing to save the form inputs
  • cleaned up FormViewerCanvas to display data from FormViewerPanel (less code) instead of calling server for more data
