The Ptolemy quick links page doesn't pop up from the Kepler intro page (Getting Started link from the start up window). I don't know who is in charge of the splash screen after Matthew and Nandita. So I assigned it to myself for now.

The link to the ptolemy quick links page was never slated to be included in the welcome screen. We did talk about putting it as a menu item on the help menu as a reference but we didn't go any farther than the discussion.

The broken link was removed from the intro page.

BTW - I think Kepler loses something by not having
the Ptolemy demos available. There are plenty of
demos and they are of use to people building models.

#4 Updated by Dan Higgins over 14 years ago

Comment #3 about the Ptolemy links is certainly valid. There is the issue about making sure all the Ptolemy example workflows are in the Kepler distribution and do not add too much to the distribution size.

I will reopen the bug until these issues are resolved.

Ok, I spent a little time tuning up the demos.
- The Kepler configuration now includes _classesToRemove, which is an
ArrayToken that contains Strings that name classes that should be removed
by MoMLFilter. This allows us to strip the code generator out of models
and thus share models that have the code generator.
- A few other cleanups

The next step is to pare down ptolemy.jar. I removed about a 1Mb of stuff,
though more could easily be removed.

One issue is that because the SVG icons and the Ptolemy icons do not have
the same origin, the Ptolemy models look a little funny. I'm willing
to live with that.

retarget to 1.0

Ilkay will take this on. We basically need to make sure that any ptII demos that are actually linked to the kepler documentation actually work in kepler. if they don't the link needs to be removed.

#8 Updated by Christopher Brooks about 14 years ago

This bug could be assigned to me.

I just added CCodeGenerator to this list of classes to be
excluded in:
This change should go into Kepler 1.0.

To check this:
0) Edit build.xml and change
<jvmarg value="-Xmx512m"/>
<jvmarg value="-Xss5m"/>
<jvmarg value="-Xmx1024m"/>
<!--jvmarg value="-Xss5m"/ -->
1) Do "ant run-dev:, then click on Documentation
2) Click on "background information on Ptolemy"
3) Click on "Copyright"
4) Click on "Copyrights" at the bottom
5) On the line "ptolemy/configs/doc/completeDemosPtinyKepler.htm"
click on "Open the .htm, .html, .xml and .pdf"

All the demos will open.

#9 Updated by Christopher Brooks about 14 years ago

This bug is ready to be closed.
It should be checked in the release branch and then closed.

#10 Updated by Christopher Brooks about 14 years ago

I checked this in Kepler-1.0.0 and the Ptolemy demos all open.
I'm closing this bug.
