SE2006:group bar:March Deliverables
From Earlham Cluster Department
"Over-ambitious projects: the theme of this semester!"
We use Eclipse for software development. We highly recommend using it to check out our project from CVS, run the program & tests, etc. There's a local copy in
As requested from Chris' email:
1) API Documentation
- Developer documentation on usage
- At this point we do not have API to the data store. We could write a quick hack in PHP but would rather spend the time to do it well in Java. See our complete TODO list for more details on where we stand.
- We have an API for actually scraping Data written in java. See http://cs.earlham.edu/~bar/doc/ for the documentation
- How to add data new sources
- Implement the SourceDefinition class according to the instructions on this page: http://cs.earlham.edu/~bar/doc/edu/earlham/cs/scrapi/SourceDefinition.html
2) Test harness (with instructions) for the API
- We use JUnit, and it must run from Eclipse (for now). Other hooks (to use it) coming soon. (Alex & Colin?)
- See the AllTests documentation for instructions on running the tests in Eclipse.
- For information about the test case coverage see the Schema Tests and Source Tests
3) Data store information
- The data dictionary itself
- Postgres database 'tobias' on millie; user 'tobias' password 'tobias' (will replace this with a bar database once that's setup)
- Scripts/instructions for creating the schema in the database instance
- There are none because this is done dynamically by our code. (Based on SourceDefinition, see above URL.)
- Scripts/instructions to populate the database with your data sources and their source information
- See above pointer. Just run the java program, and the Scheduler will take care of all the nitty/gritty details.
