  • Ingested the Infotek data successfully, but the trend widget chokes on it. Asked mike to fix.

7:30 – 4:00

  • Got an “Access Denied” going through the turnstiles today. I’m guessing that this is a side-effect of switching over to FGM. Need to work this out with Brian(?) and our security officer. Talked to Brian and Angie about this. Angie’s looking into it.
  • Realized over the weekend that ObjectWrappers need a “clear code buffer” so they don’t store every call for relaunch. Done.
  • Commenting serializing code and adding to the Utils class
  • Mike’s back!
  • Installed the “Dina” programming font, which I like a lot:
  • Need to deploy a new version of VISIBILITY incorporating Mike’s changes to LaurelDemo and S2F. Disk is burned and Laureldemo is up

  • Back from a long vacation, it’s amazing how screwed up workspaces can get when you don’t touch them, fixed several build issues which turns out to be a waste of time 3 bullets down
  • Fixed several issues with the TrendWidget PieChart and BarChart
  • Added a more descriptive title instead of ‘Trend Widget’
  • Realized I was working on the wrong workspace and checking in to the wrong place, changed workspaces and found nothing working, deleted the workspace and redownloaded, copied my changes over and checked them in in the correct place

Phil 1.15.2010

  • Showed some more folks in S2F how to use visibility and ingest files
  • Moved actual parsing of code from the WrapperManager to the ObjectWrapper
  • Talked to Anne, she has a demo next week that might also have a dashboard component. Maybe the best thing to do is get the TUMMS codebase. I wonder if I have any screenshots.

7:30 -3:30

  • Forgot to drop off the user docs today. Burned a disk and stuck it in my coat. That should help
  • Working on reading in a Data Provider. Works – generalizing. Added and then deleted ArrayCollection, since Arrays are easier to work with. Added Object as a “simple” type.
  • Added a WrapperManager to the XmlSerializer package. Still only at about 500 lines.
  • Next, update the serialization so that the data includes the “code”.

Phil 1.11.10

8:00 – 4:30

  • Darn, missed the chance to enter a date of 01.10.10 yesterday. Now we have to wait for October for more binary fun.
  • Working on seeing how to connect to runtime defined data as a dataprovider to an instanced class. Oddly, this is the third time I’ve done something like this, first in C++, then in Java, and now in Actionscript. Need to go look for a documented pattern.

8:00 – 4:00

  • Discovered that PRIVATE is not restricting pulls. Fixing that first. No, it’s working correctly, it’s just that admin and superuser can see everything.
  • Good progress on ObjectWrapper. It can apply properties and run functions with arguments.

Phil 1.7.2010

8:00 – 4:00

  • More serializer work.
  • Put the serializer code in EdgeUtils
  • Looks like I’m not going to be able to get much more out of the serializer without wrapping it so that I can pass in data providers and such. Started on the wrapper – more tomorrow.
