Need to look at the print out on the console when we search and download data on ecogrid.

The debug message has gone when I tried to reproduced the issue on comment 3. I tried both kepler 2.0 and trunk. Ben verified this on kepler 2.0. So someone either turned the logging level down or changed something.

I saved a workflow into local repository as a kar file. The search it on the components panel. The result shows:

- eml-simple-plot,kar
- eml-simple-plot

I tried to drag the eml-simple-plot,kar into the canvas. But I couldn't. I only can drag the second eml-simple-plot (a composite actor) to the canvas.

I don't think you're supposed to be able to drag the kar to the canvas. It's just a container.

What can we do to the kar search result? How can we open it?



#8 Updated by Chad Berkley over 10 years ago

You should be able to drag the contents of the kar file. If the kar file doesn't have anything in it, then there is nothing to drag.

#9 Updated by Jing Tao over 10 years ago

In this case, the kar file only has a composite actor at the result panel. Actually, I saved a workflow to the kar file. And after dragging the composite actor to the canvas, I couldn't run it.

You may reproduce the issue by saving eml-simple-plot.xml as a kar file locally. Then search it.

It's probably Kepler keeping you from running a workflow without a top-level directory. Put a PN or SDF directory in the top level along with the no-port composite and try it.

Aaron clarify the issue:

on the search result panel, right clicking the kar entry will bring a menu. One menu item is "Open". Use this menu item, user can open the workflow.

close the bug.
