Further rework on ldapweb.cgi for 1.9 compatibility. Finished changes needed to have skinnable presentation for ldapweb.cgi, and reworked the organization logic to be compatible with our current method of storing the data (organization.* within

4378 09/23/2008 04:42 PM walbridge

Number of fixes, including removing all lastid code and replacing with a single function which always queries remotely instead of relying on lookups, solving #3019.

3629 11/30/2007 04:47 PM walbridge

Workaround for a bizzare submission issue stemming from the debug sub. Modified the NCEAS project list to be robust and rely on the presence of the AdminDB module and a working connection to the DB for listing projects.

3598 11/20/2007 01:26 PM walbridge

Updated the ResponsibleParty object creation to be more robust. Now handles N MetadataProvider elements as expected.

3473 09/25/2007 04:12 PM walbridge

Cleaned up regexes used in register-dataset.cgi to support arbitrary numbers of elements for keywords. Cleaned up regexes for state selection, to omit default values. Added debug as a GET parameter, so a page can be debugged by appending `&debug=1'. Committed latest changes to file processing, to allow files to be deleted after returning to the entry page from confirmation or processing errors. Seperated out entryForm.js from entryForm.tmpl to simplify debugging.

3422 09/11/2007 03:53 PM walbridge

Added submission of data files to the registry. New parameter 'hasUpload' can be set on a per-skin basis to enable the uploading of data objects to be associated with a metadata document. NCEAS skin is using this by default, to be changed in the future for other skins....

2258 08/28/2004 03:25 AM Matt Jones

Modifications to the registry to support the new ESA skin. Factored out some of
the configuration-specific code into properties that are set in the various
cfg files in the skins. New properties in the cfg files are lsite, usite,
showSiteList, showWgList, showOrganization. These now need to be set in every skin...

2223 07/22/2004 02:31 PM sgarg

Also made changes in create-registry folder

2152 04/30/2004 08:27 PM sgarg

Following variables can now be specifieD from the cfg file to control behaviour of the skin: hasKeyword, hasMethod, hasSpatial, hasTaxonomic and hasTemporal. Following two also can be used: spatialRequired and temporalRequired

2148 04/30/2004 11:09 AM sgarg

Made changes to fix bug# 1303 and 1367.(Both are related) - corresponding changes need to be made in tmpl file and testing needs to be done before bugs can be closed.

2144 04/29/2004 11:16 AM sgarg

Made changes to fix 1301. Works fine with eml2 - need to check if works with emlbeta6.

2138 04/26/2004 04:46 PM sgarg

Made changes to control whether a skin wants to use keywords or not. Keywords probably will be used by all skins alsways. But similar changes can be made for Geographic Coverage or Temporal COverage to control whether a particular section of the insert data template needs to be shown or not. This can be controlled from .cfg file. For example, in nceas.cfg is you define hasKeyword = false, none of the templates will show the keyword part. (Unless, you are using NCEAS skin and you try to modify a document which already has keywords.)

2137 04/26/2004 02:59 PM sgarg

Removed beta6 specific code which is no longer being used.

2136 04/26/2004 02:29 PM sgarg

Removed repetition of code. Also fixed the link to the modified file submitted from responseTemplate

2057 03/22/2004 10:37 AM sgarg

Fixed a bug which doesn't occur everytime. The bug occurs when lastid in (cfg).lastid is not unique. i.e. there is already a document in the server which has same docid. The earlier algorithm was:

while(not unique){
get accession number;
update accession number written in document; (BUG)...

2056 03/22/2004 08:43 AM sgarg

Added extra parameters (cfg & docid) to be passed on to generic response screen.

2049 03/16/2004 06:57 PM sgarg

made changes so that organization name for the site or project is entered before
any other creater.

2042 03/09/2004 03:59 PM sgarg

fixed a bug in reloading of kewords from an eml file for edit-datapackage form.

2038 03/06/2004 11:51 PM Matt Jones

Minor changes to allow the registry to work in the knb skin, mainly in
how to treat the 'site' field. Now it is a free-text organization
field in the KNB skin. Need to test, install this on ecoinfo and link it
into the KNB web pages.

2037 02/27/2004 03:21 PM sgarg

Added subroutine for replacing characters that might create problem in HTML.
Specifically written for "being used in any text field. This create a
problem in confirmData template, when you specify input name value pair with value
having a " in it.

2032 02/20/2004 04:45 PM sgarg

Made changes so that & and other characters dont mess up the url that is passed to metacat.

2029 02/11/2004 01:08 PM sgarg

Mixed a bug reported by Rick and Dan. The form inserted a organizationName tag with no value. This happened only in NCEAS as the tag was included from the drop down site list which doesnot exsist in NCEAS version. Hence, a empty tag was inserted in the eml document.

2028 02/10/2004 06:13 PM sgarg

Bug 1301 - changes made for a repeatable add keyword button

2024 02/10/2004 09:37 AM sgarg

Made changes to fix bug# 1326. The templateVar are now passed on to the responseTemplate also in case of error - so that it can show a link which will send all the values back to register-dataset.

2015 02/05/2004 04:36 PM sgarg

Did editing to support changes mentioned in bug 1295

2005 01/12/2004 06:37 PM Matt Jones

Fixed hardcoded admin account so that it works with more than just OBFS

2003 01/12/2004 05:44 PM Matt Jones

Fixed registry bug involving a string comparison (used numeric
equality instead of string equality).

2000 01/08/2004 06:57 PM Matt Jones

Removed unneeded Net::LDAP dependency. Now all authentication occurs
indirectly through Metacat.

1999 01/08/2004 06:48 PM Matt Jones

Added skin for the UCNRS data registry based on earlier work. Minor
modifications to the templates to accomodate this. Fixed a validation
bug in the register-dataset.cgi, and removed an unnecessary Net::LDAP
login as well because the authentication is handled by metacat.

1997 01/08/2004 08:31 AM Matt Jones

Fixed validation check for samplingDescription.

1993 01/07/2004 03:13 PM Matt Jones

Changes to re-enable the nceas admindb access for the production install.

1992 01/07/2004 11:07 AM Matt Jones

Removed some debugging test code that isn't needed.

1989 01/06/2004 06:41 PM Matt Jones

Added studyExtent and samplingDescription fields to the registry to accomodate
Sandy's request for a temporalDescription field. This is a little more than
she wanted, but it was needed to satisfy EML minimum requirements.

1985 12/29/2003 01:57 PM Matt Jones

Added taxonomic coverage and authority fields, and fixed a bug in reentry
with the methods fields. Now we are collecting information on all of the
additional fields Sandy requested except for a general temporal description,
which doesn't fit neatly in EML. Will need to consider how to accomodate...

1984 12/23/2003 06:22 PM Matt Jones

Added the ability to describe taxonomicCoverage to the registry. This
allows an arbitrary number of species or other taxa to be listed, and the
editing form can dynamically grow through a simple javascript approach
(also used in Methods). Need to test thoroughly, and need to test on...

1983 12/23/2003 12:15 PM Matt Jones

Added geographic description to the fields of data collected, as it is
a required field and was being improperly defaulted to an empty string in the
XML document. This is a new field for all registries.

1982 12/23/2003 11:27 AM Matt Jones

Modifications to add "Methods" collection to the data registry, and to
make the forms HTML 4.0.1 valid (in an attempt to figure out some of
the rendering and layout oddities I'm seeing).

1980 12/19/2003 04:49 PM Matt Jones

New formatting and text for the NCEAS data registry.

1979 12/19/2003 04:12 PM Matt Jones

Further changes to the registry scripts to support the NCEAS registry
with access to the project list fromthe admindb. Also, fixed a bug with
the script where creators were getting duplicated in the editing process

1977 12/18/2003 05:08 PM Matt Jones

Modifications that allow working group entries to be put in as creators, and
a whole bunch of re-formatting for horribly formatted code that I need to
read to finish this thing up.

1975 12/18/2003 01:45 AM Matt Jones

Updated registry further for NCEAS-specific needs. Confirm data template
now handles new wg field. Still need to write WG metadata into EML document.

1974 12/17/2003 05:37 PM Matt Jones

Additional work on the NCEAS/AdminDB integration. Working Groups now
presented as a dropdown box for multiple selection. Need to write the
info to the XML file now and handle it in confirmation template.

1973 12/17/2003 02:58 PM Matt Jones

Preliminary changes to support the NCEAS data registry connection to the
AdminDB to retrieve project lists.

1955 12/09/2003 11:42 PM Matt Jones

Updates that allow registry script to update the lastid field more efficiently
by calling the metacat 'getlastdocid' function for a given scope. Also some
debugging support added, and a bug where the error message was inproperly
saved across calls to metacat, resulting in spurious error messages.

1936 11/24/2003 10:44 AM Matt Jones

Remove email notification from registry script.

1929 11/21/2003 03:05 PM brooke

This is the merge from the branch WEB_UI_REDESIGN_BRANCH back into the head.
The only files that have been removed are those in lib/style/eml2; other files
that have been cvs removed (only from lib/ and lib/style) have been re-added
elsewhere (i.e. moved from one directory to another)....
