1. Minutes of the last meeting

Minutes of the meeting of 5th January 2009 are here.

2. Software Development

2.1 Applications

Peter has committed an application acdxsd to write the SoapLab XSD file template. This will need more work as the XSD file contents are better defined.

2.2 Libraries

Peter has applied an update to ACD processing that requires all qualifier names to be unique in their first 6 characters. Existing applications in EMBOSS and EMBASSY have been updated to conform to the new standard. In future the limit may be reduced to 5 characters.

2.3 SoapLab

Mahmut has updated the SoapLab web pages and created a Wikipedia page. Further content is needed.

The SoapLab server has been up for more than 6 weeks. It was restarted as some threads were showing in an abstract waitfor state in jconsole and some threads were hanging. The restarted server will be monitored for any further problems.

Mahmut will commit some typed services changes to the SoapLab CVS. Some of the code is not yet approved by Martin.
