EMBOSS: Project Meeting (Mon 22nd January 2007)
Mahmut reported that 210 test cases for the EMBOSS SoapLab services are now working. Output from service tests can be saved (as for the EMBOSS QA tests) for reuse by a later test run. EMBRACE wiki pages have been updated to exclude EMBOSS administrative and interactive programs.
Mahmut is now working on EMBRACE reports, including Taverna 1.5 workflows. All EMBOSS services could be saved in a single WSDL file, or can be split into groups. This is an issue for clients to address. It is possible to provide more than one set of WSDL definitions.
Peter suggested revising sequence inputs to automatically detect list input for any file whose first line is a valid USA. This could simplify processing of list input by SoapLab services, where the union application is hard to define inputs for.
Alan and Peter plan to build a 4.1.0 release once the current code changes are completed and have had time for thorough testing. This will clean up the current patch file directory on the FTP server.
Peter is working on the database administration section.
Peter suggested an application to report architecture-specific information for help in debugging and support.
Alan, Jon and Peter had lunch with Cambridge University Press last week to discuss the status of the EMBOSS books.
The EMBOSS team Christmas dinner (and birthday celebrations for Alan and Jon) will be on Friday.
The next meeting is on Monday 5th February.
