  • removed all the maven dependencies on PPM and built it with FlexMonkey configurations
    • works better, but some hickups – cannot get menu items selected
    • Create Project test ran successfully
      • with Create Project Panel open
      • some delays added between combo selections and database response
      • couldn’t get the buttons with same labels behave right, changed the buttons to have unique labels
    • Financial Data Entry not working properly….
    • tried RIATest
      • -include-libraries “/Applications/RIATest 3/agent/RIATestAgent3.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation_agent.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation_dmv.swc”
      • works faster
      • special attention required on datagrids

7:00 – 6:00 FP

  • Machining today. You can reach me at on my cell
    • Finger hinges are done. The U-channel is slightly less than 1/2 inch spacing, so I had to mill that out.
    • Built the base and connected it to the half-finished palm
    • added the finger hinges to the palm and discovered that the ring finger clevis was too close to the index. Moved it over a bit
    • Mounted the fingers
    • Had a fright that I had ordered the wrong hollow rod, but after measuring it and the motor, it looks good.
    • Class tonight.
    • Here’s progress for today:
  • Also filling out expense reports. Done

  • additional compiler argument for FlexMonkey test
    • -locale en_US -include-libraries “/Users/dongshin/Projects/workspace.fgmdev/ProjPortfolioMgrClient/libs/automation_monkey3.x.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation_agent.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation_dmv.swc”
  • getting weird error…..

  • it looks like automation_monkey3.x.swc has been compile with Flex SDK 3.3 and cannot get it to work with 3.3 or 3.5?
  • tried to compile whole FlexMonkey package – no luck, too many missing, no clear instruction.
  • tried RIATest – same error?
    • compiled first time, but getting “Unable to resolve resouce bundle…” erros
  • all these Flex SDK set up messed up my Flex Builder, ugh!
  • reinstalled Flex Builder & plugins
  • tried using Flex SDK
    • built and ran without FlexMonkey
    • added libs/automation_monkey3.x.swc – ran fine
    • -include-libraries “../../../libs/automation_monkey3.x.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation_agent.swc” “${flexlib}/libs/automation_dmv.swc” results in Unable to resolve resource bundle error
    • manually added automation_agent.swc and automation.swc to libs – didn’t work
  • created new project, moved all source over, set FlexMonkey configuration….
    • works!

8:00 – 4:00 VISIBILITY

  • 10:30 PPM meeting. Meet Trish at 10:00. Nope cancelled until next week at the same time. End of FY crunch apparently.
  • Adding version box to Ingest Manager, Accounts Manager and Scripting Server. Done. Not sure what to do about the dashboard bug. It’s very difficult to replicate.
  • Back to Flex in a week
    • Day 1 Episode 11
    • Day 1 Episode 12 – The Network Monitor is a nice touch.
    • Day 1 Episode 13
  • Painted our fake conduit

Dong Shin 09.27.2010

  • looking into Apache HTTP/Tomcat integration – using single host to direct appropriate URL to Tomcat or HTTPD
  • reworked AboutInfoWindow.mxml so that all the app needs is single mxml tag
    • usage: <aboutFlexApp1:AboutInfoWindow  id=”aboutWindow” appName=”Project Portfolio Mgr” version=”{_version}” imgName=”./images/logo1.png”/>
    • somehow I can’t get this to pop up on center…
  • troubleshoot weird compile issues with Eclipse/Flex Builder
    • M2_REPO environment variable must be defined within a project!
  • finished up Self Evaluation and sent to Chas Sumser

7:30 – 3:30 VISIBILITY

  • Deployed new PPM. Went through a quick sanity check with Trish, who had *no* suggestions/fixes. I think we’re ready for the demo. Be there tomorrow at 10:00
  • Discovered that Lou Ann is working with CMM. I sent her a hi! note and described VISIBILITY a bit. We’ll see what happens.
  • Looking into the role issue from Friday. Found it. Tables that the user can see are based on loaded tables. If you make a table and then use it in a dashboard, you won’t be able to use it until you log in again. Going to add to the tableList
  • Had to deal with some Eclipse 3.5.1 -> 3.6.0 eclipse issues. First, I forgot that M2_REPO had to be in the project’s link list. Then there were a few POM problems (version stuff mostly), and then there were some issues with access permissions on some files that the Ingest Manager server code was using. Seems to be working now.
  • Added Dong’s version popup to the Data Visualization app. Going to add it to the other apps in the suite as well.

  • Looking for ways to improve the Python autocompletion system by learning Python, how novel
  • I think I may be able to come up with some kind of recursive system using the built in functions of type, dir, and getattr.  I will have to recurse back through variable definitions and function calls until getting to an imported module or built in function but it should be able to handle everything as opposed to only the most basic
