EMBOSS: Project Meeting (Mon 1st October 07)
Alan has made modifications to the Windows builds for the 3 new applications added since the release.
Alan is testing a dbxflat indexing bug that only appears when EMBL release files are processed in a particular order.
Peter reported that Jingchu has asked about coderet supporting features that join across more than one entry.
Mahmut has web services using a JAX-SW API and the dispatch server API with proper typing. These can use Java introspection to give a generic way to run jobs and can potentially be automated for all EMBOSS applications without any additional Java code.
Martin has committed the JAX-WS web services layer for SoapLab2, with documentation to be updated in the next few days. Some work is needed for features of EMBOSS applications - the old SoapLab had a perl utility script to collect all outputs in a given directory which needs to be replaced with java code using the current ACD parser. Work will continue on this and the new ACD parser (with Shaun in the next 2 months. The "ACD dashboard" is still planned as a future project.
Peter noted that multiple sequences in GFF2 format (without features) appear to be broken.
The next meeting is on Monday 15th October.
