12:25 PM Revision 5137 (metacat): Do not register the session service


10:05 AM Revision 5136 (metacat): I'm adding two PARC-specific templates to the CGI templates directory. This is a temporary addition, since these templates should reside in the PARC skin.

Chris Jones
09:47 AM Revision 5134 (metacat): I've added in the XSL stylesheets for the PARC skin. The parc, parc-eml, parc-common and login stylesheets have been changed slightly for PARC branding.
Chris Jones
09:44 AM Revision 5133 (metacat): I'm adding the settings and map JSPs. These are placeholder files since the map is not used in the PARC skin, and the settings file merely import common settings for the skin, but doesn't modify any of the interface settings.
Chris Jones

Chris Jones
09:34 AM Revision 5129 (metacat): Here are the three javascript libraries associated with the PARC skin. The only real changes are in the search.js file, where metacat searches have absolute XPaths in the search criteria. The return fields remain as relative XPaths to be consistent with the rendering code for the skin.
Chris Jones
09:32 AM Revision 5128 (metacat): I'm adding the parc.cfg configuration file, which is effectively a copy of the nceas.cfg file.
Chris Jones
09:29 AM Revision 5126 (metacat): This is the PARC XML configuration file. I've removed the EML beta 4-6 doctype identifiers since this skin will only deal with EML 2.1.0 documents.
