Creation of Web Services and related metadata (cf WP3 and [1] &[2]). Work on a new processes (for tuna atlas use case and R code for density usable for species distribution, tracking and VMS data).

T6.3 Virtual Research Environments Common Interfaces and Tools

CNR Activities

The CNR activity focused on the development and the release of the following software applications:

On Social Portal, Social Data Sharing implementation #865

  • ASL Social Extension
    • gCube Applications do not interact with the Social Networking Library directly. Rather they exploit this ASL-Extension capability. The following new features have been implemented:
    • Possibility for gCube Workspace portlet to Notify users about sharing of folders and folder items.
    • Related ticket: #1282
  • Enabled Notifications for sharing data on Workspace Portlet
    • The Workspace Portlet was enhanced to notify users involved to sharing of workspace items.
    • Related ticket: #1282

On Reports component:

  • Reports (former Report Generation Portlet) was mavenized and adapted to the new requirements.
  • Related tickets: #1000, #999, #997

On Templates component:

  • Templates (Former Templates Creation Portlet) was mavenized and adapted to the new requirements.
  • Related ticket: #998
