Noted: Something has broken with the attendance template, error text is being included for blank users in the list rather than the exclamation point icon.
Chinua: Evaluation of richfaces and primefaces indicates that they are compatible and both can be used together on the same page on the same project. Also working on documentation and standardization of web client code based on code reviews and draft code documentation and formatting standards.
David: Working on getting specify-FP code working again in eclipse, fixed issue with database configuration wizard. Also working on binding specify objects to XML, particularly on representations of Agent.
Discussion of Kepler and workflows.
Zhimin: Looking at RDF triple store and java API for triple stores and reasoning from JENA. Evaluating the efficiency of the Sesame triple store for transformation of collection data to darwin core RDF, and reason on it in the triple store, resulting in the injection of inferred triples. Working on draft of paper, not quite ready to circulate.
Paul: Working on a draft of code documentation and formatting standards for the next round of work.
Friday code review meeting: Followed a find duplicates message from the old Specify6 client code into the network. Considered further the requirements for a FP library for clients to encapsulate the generation of messages, the parsing of messages, the injection of messages into the network, and the handling of synchronous and asynchronous messaging with the network. Proposal, wrap all network communication behind an asynchronous interface for the client java code. Spent time discussing code formatting standards. Maureen has posted conclusions of this discussion on the wiki at CodeConventions. Discussion of messaging in the network lead to a use case scenario where users remotely create new specimen records for their collections. This would impose a requirement for user (rather than node) authentication. This is relevant for the NE Herbarium Consortium BRC proposal.
Zhimin suggests consideration of gitorious as a code repository http://gitorious.org/
