EDRN Catalog and Archive Service for the EDRN Knowledge Environment

Project description


This product, ``eke.ecas``, provides display and RDF ingest of science data
from the EDRN_ Catalog and Archive Service (ECAS_) into the EDRN Knowledge
Environment (EKE_). EDRN uses the EKE to make it easy to discover, share,
search for, and retrieve all of EDRN's collective knowledge, including cancers
and other diseases, biomarkers, specimens, investigators, participants,
studies, protocols, and-as in the case of this product-science data.

Although intended for the EDRN public portal, it can be installed in any
Plone_ compatible site.

This software is developed by the `EDRN Informatics Center`_ at JPL_,
operated by the California Institute of Technology, for NCI_.

Use Buildout_ with the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe.

* Add ``eke.ecas`` to the list of eggs to install, e.g.::

eggs =

* Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug::

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
zcml =

* Re-run buildout, e.g. with::

% ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package
from another package's configure.zcml file.

What follows is a history of changes from release to release. For more
details about specific issue IDs listed below, consult the issue tracker at

1.1.4 — Upgrades

Made compatible with Plone 4.1.5 and eea.facetednavigation 4.5

1.1.3 — For Science!

This release addresses the following:

* CA-513 - Science Data List on the Portal
* Depending on just Plone the framework instead of Plone the application.

1.1.2 — Let's Collaborate!

This release includes the following:

* A layer and associated fixtures.
* Support for edrnsite.collaborations
* Re-attaches datasets that indicate their collaborative group back to the
"Collaborative Group" (from edrnsite.collaborations) objects to which they
* Removed the hard-coded Description text on Dataset Folders and let the
folder's own "description" field appear.

1.1.1 — Upgrade Cleanup

This release updates the GenericSetup profile to 4, and provides upgrade steps
to that profile. It also uses the "trunk" versions of dependent eggs instead
of relying on official releases.

1.1.0 — Plone 4

This release makes eke.ecas compatible with Plone 4.

1.0.1 — Marked Up

This release addresses the only issue below:

* CA-733 - Ingest of science data should treat custodian field as plain text,
not marked up HTML

1.0.0 — Freedom!

This following sole issue is the only one addressed by this release:

* CA-654 - Modify "Lock" Icon on Science Data Tab

0.0.4 — To Be Named At Release Time

This release addresses the following issues:

* - Compute PI of a dataset by going
from dataset to protocol to lead site to PI at site instead of dataset to sites
to PIs at sites.
* - Datasets without Protocols
should not be displayed on the Science Data tab
* - Create search indexes; in
particular, this updates the related protocol so that searching for a dataset
by name will also match the related protocol.

0.0.3 — I say Tomato...

This release addresses the following issues:

* - Improve indexing on searches related to
eCAS data sets


This release addresses the following issues:

* - Disclaimer needed on
dataset folders.
* - Show all datasets but prompt
for login based on permissions
* - Lock box for science data and
biomarkers should disappear if a user has access to the object

0.0.1 — You Say Potato...

This release addresses the following issues:

* - Change "Body Systems" under
Science Data Tab Contents to Organ
* http:
// - Portal dataset view only seems
to respect QAState (and not AccessGrantedTo).

0.0.0 — Unreleased

Initial release into beta.
