  • Reorganizing everything in the arduino sketch to work with so that if it does need anything from the data dictionary it can be passed from the main.
  • The loadBuffer parameter is now just the char* instead of the name of a dataelement.
  • The checkCommand method now accepts the command struct as a parameter instead of a dataelement.
  • Added checks in the CommandHandler class to check that a command is unique before execution.
  • This really does seem like a better idea.  It keeps it more modular and the arduino side is simple enough that the datadictionary was adding unnecessary complexity.  It is still used in the main sketch to handle remote data which passes between the pc and the aruduino which is the main reason it exists in the first place.

  • Backups indicate nothing is happening. Ah well. We’ll deploy the new code next week and see if we can’t get things moving. I’ll contact Tangie tomorrow.
  • Working on RPC with GWT. Looks pretty straightforward. I want to understand the limitations on sharing a class between the client and the server.
  • Mike’s starting to get logging working in GWT.
  • Found the National Capital Area Google Technology User’s Group
  • Added name and password saving to the application. THe easy answer, storing encrypted data didn’t work. saving view state messed up the views. Using FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.persistenceManager.setProperty() worked, but then I didn’t feel right about leaving a password out in plain text, so I wrote some crappy encryption using Perlin noise that provides a nice looking figleaf.

  • Financial Data navigation in Project Assistant
    • takes to the beginning of the records when option changes
    • combined checkbox navigation – done
    • working on current months navigation – done coding
    • testing would take a while….
    • revised the Budget Details query to ignore $0 budgets and years beyond current year
      • SELECT c.*, a.uid as a_uid, a.amount as amount, o.year, o.year_count, r.duration,

  • working on Financial Data Navigation on Project Assistant
    • simple navigation done – single status navigation

Start: 10:00

  • Finished the testing sandbox for datadictionary.  Its strange, it uploads with some errors about the class object not being there, it doesn’t crash during runtime, but still doesn’t work.  It is actually using the class which is having the error to send the serial data back.
  • Still trying to figure this out.  I have decided its not necessary on the arduino side.  The DataDictionary will still work in the main sketch so the transfer from the PC side will work fine it just won’t be able to be used in the other classes which don’t really need it considering there is no graphical interface or anything else to interact with on this side.
  • Rewrote the ComUtil class to work without the DataDictionary.

Mike 11.29.11

  • Finished things up in the phone app:
    • Implemented filtering in the ColumnView
    • Removed the filtering option in the TableView
    • Made the map markers DPI dependent
    • Few other small fixes
  • Looking in to GWT / Java Enterprise Architectures, specifically 3-tier application architectures
  • Fiddling around with GWT Examples

  • Upon clicking the compiler error, I found that for some reason it was using a different DataDictionary then the one seen in the project folder.  I was able to make the changes and compile.
  • For some reason Visual Micro is not able to make the objects properly when trying to deploy.
  • Something went very wrong with Visual Micro,  none of my sketches will compile now.
  • Reinstalled Visual Micro which was actually kinda annoying.  Not only did you have to delete it but you also had to go in the setting and disable the mod that did shouldn’t be installed.
  • Visual Micro is now able to compile working sketches again
  • The DataDictionary is still making a weird error message.  I commented out all the instance of it and found that there are no errors if it is only declared in the main sketch.
  • Uncommeted the datadictionary in ComUtilB,  I still get a weird error message but the sketch seems to be sent.
  • Setting up a sandbox to test datadictionary from a class.  All previous tests were done in the main sketch.  I have a feeling it will work but I will still get the weird compiling messages.
