12:32 AM Revision 3099 (metacat): Updated MetaCatServlet so that it supports a web-based interface for configuring its own properties the first time it is run (determined by the property "configured" being set to false). Which properties are exposed in the web interface is determined by the list of properties in the '' file. This file is managed by the new OptionsMetadata class in the utilities module, and provides information that allows metacat to build a human-readable configuration page for the properties. Still need to finish filling out the information in for the rest of the properties that we want to be editable. This autoconfiguration process is the first step towards building a turnkey installer for metacat.
Note: you need to remove the lib/utilities.jar file from your metacat workspace, update the utilities module, and the... Matt Jones


09:29 AM Bug #2675 (Resolved): column "infinity" does not exist

Chris Jones
01:37 PM Revision 3094 (metacat): I'm adding a set of EML XSL stylesheets that are separate but similar to those

'shared' (in libstyle) and put these modi...
Chris Jones
01:27 PM Revision 3093 (metacat): I'm adding the two html templates from the OBFS skin developed by Matt Jones.
These were used as reference files in the PISCO skin. Chris Jones
01:25 PM Revision 3092 (metacat): I'm adding the two jsp files that originated in the KNB skin developed
by Matthew Brooke, modified for the PISCO skin. Chris Jones
01:23 PM Revision 3091 (metacat): I'm adding the PISCO-specific XSL stylesheets used to transform EML documents to PISCO web pages. Notice that resultset.xsl is now in this templates directory, rather than in lib/style/common since it has PISCO-specific styling.
Chris Jones
01:20 PM Revision 3090 (metacat): I'm adding in a number of supporting image files that make up the PISCO header, navigation bar, and footer sections of the styled web pages.
Chris Jones

01:55 AM Revision 3083 (metacat): Modified the configuration classes to allow configuration through the web interface of all of the properties set in the file. The layout of this form still needs work, in particular because java.util.Properties does not maintain any order for the properties, nor does it allow for metadata about each property to be set and saved in the file. We can probably overcome this by creating a shadow file that lists all of the options and their metadata (such as grouping, controlled values, etc).

Matt Jones


11:30 AM Revision 3080 (metacat): Eliminated the '@release@' ant tag from the rest of the files. The 'release' property is still used in build.xml for creating releases, but the filter is no longer presnt. Now, when updating the metacat files for a release, you have to set the release version in both the build.xml and the files.
Matt Jones

Matt Jones
