Status Report 20 September 2004


  • Kepler group
    • The new QueryBuilder has now been incorporated into Kepler and allows arbitrary SQL queries against EML-described data sources that can be downloaded from EcoGrid
    • Discussing significant overhaul to how the underlying file management infrastructure for Kepler works so that we can better manage Kepler actors and composite actors on disk and EcoGrid

  • KR/SMS group
    • More editing enhancements to Growl

  • EcoGrid group
    • Working on registry implementation, registry incorporation in Kepler, and DarwinCore result support in Kepler

  • Taxon group
    • Continued work on the Taxonomic Concept editor application
    • Preparing for TDWG meeting presentations
    • Further work on getting LSID server running

Individual Reports

Liu Xianhua

Completed tasks / bugs fixed

  • GUI support for editing taxonomic concepts
    • Adding new concepts/relationships
    • Changing existing concepts/relationships
    • Deleting concepts/relationships

Current tasks / bugs

  • Editing function of data proxy
    • Adding new concepts/relationships
    • Updating changes of existing concepts/relationships
    • Deleting concepts/relationships

Significant issues

  • TCBE will hold a local copy of all concepts/relationships and record the editing operations(adding,changing,deleting) for each concept or relationship. These editing operations will be updated to the data source at the same time as a whole. This could improve the performance and save time by avoiding access the database frequently, especially when internet transfer is involved.
