    • Developed documentation pages for smartgears
    • Presented smartgears at the 7th TCom
  • Finalised and released FWS components that handles gcube jaxws service calls. Bugfixing activity on common-gcore-resources.
  • Released new version of executor service
  • Developed and released FWS compliant version of softwaregateway client libraries along with a CLI application that can be used to invoke software gateway methods
  • Bugfixing activity on softwaregateway service.
  • Refactorings on resourcemanager-client library and updated documentation on the wiki.
  • Developed and released FWS compliant version of resourcemanager-client.

T8.2: Policy-oriented Security Facilities

  • Presented activities done at the 7th Tcom
  • Updated documentation on authentication, authorization, accounting
  • Developed and tested integration of SAML assertion Id in portal

T8.3: Workflow Management Facilities

    • Bugfixing activity


None


T8.1: Enabling-technology Development

  • First release of the smartgears compoinent stack
  • First release of FWS compliant softwaregateway client library: softwaregateway-client 2.0.0
  • First release of FWS compliant resourcemanager client library: resourcemanager-client 1.0.0

T8.2: Policy-oriented Security Facilities

  • Released several components in gCube 2.17 that address the aforementioned issue. See the detailed WP8 monthly report for the list of components.

T8.3: Workflow Management Facilities

  • Released several components in gCube 2.17 in order to address the aforementioned task issues.

WP9: Data Management Facilities Development

WP Leader: CNR - Participants: NKUA, CERN, TERRADUE, FAO

  • In T9.1:

No activity to report

  • In T9.2:

CERN released a new version of the data transfer subsystem for the gCube 2.17 released. The new subsystem contains a gcf free version of the portlet and of the libraries and the integration with gwt 2.5.1. Also the Storage Manager portle was enhanced.

  • In T9.3:

CNR prepared future plan and presentation for the 7th TCom (Rome). They solved issues regarding several aspect of the tabular data Service. In particular JAXB Serialization and a lazy mechanism for the retrieval of database endpoint data from IS were addressed. CNR also worked on legacy components, especially portlets, for maintenance purposes. The main modifications for these were: update to aslcore 4.0, removal of old stack, update to gwt 2.5.1, mavenization, replaced old logging facilities with slf4j.


No deviations to report


  • Release of a new version of the Data Transfer subsystem

WP10: Data Consumption Facilities Development

WP Leader: NKUA - Participants: CNR, FORTH, TERRADUE, FAO

In T10.1, the Search System and the FulltextIndex have been optimized in performance while caching techniques have been applied to the latter. ForwardIndex now support distinct and orderby functionalities. An incident that caused failure on searching upon all collections was investigated and solved. Finally, deliverable D10.2 (gCube Query Language Specification) has been authored.

In T10.2, gCube Data Transformation Service client library has been released.

In T10.3, Local Outlier Factor operator was introduced, which is a method to calculate the outliers in a set of real valued vectors. One issue regarding SSB vs Recruits results has been fixed, producing very interesting results. The Signal Processing wiki and the Developer's guide for the Statistical Manager users have been validated. Also, the algorithms that run on the SM were supervised, in order to assess the call limitations of each algorithm. The activity on the algorithms involved also a first implementation of the BiOnym workflow and a consequent deploy on the SM in dev environment. Moreover, another activity has started that addresses storing algorithms of SM as generic resources on the IS.

In T10.4, gCore dependencies of xsearch-portlet have been removed. Also, work was placed in improvement of look and feel of the portlet and investigating how to allow better user-interaction. One bug related with multiple user interaction on xsearch bookmarklet was resolved.
