On a deadline for the Properties stuff, and got off to a slow start because of bad data relating to complex transactions...

Working on expanded transaction view

I've spent most of the day working on building the new transaction view in the form of a spreadsheet, and I think it's about 2/3 done. I have ethnicity-munging working in the XSLT, as well as munging of institution types for multiple institutions. In the process, I've found and fixed some data-entry issues (as always).

I now have a two-stage XSLT process. The first stage, working on the XML output from the db, takes several minutes; this generates a view of the database which is centred specifically on transactions, importing all relevant data for each transaction into the transaction itself. Once this is done, the second-stage process then processes that output to create a spreadsheet; this is much faster (a few seconds), and it's easier to work on and test the second process without having to run the first process over and over again.

Tomcat launcher

I wrote a quick bash script that lets me start or stop a local instance of tomcat with a single click. If you ONLY intend to ever run one tomcat at a time this will work pretty well.

It uses catalina.sh instead of startup.sh, and sets the CATALINA_PID variable to write a file containing the pid of the launched tomcat.

It first checks to see if there is a pid file at the location set by CATALINA_PID. If there is, the script reads the file and, making the assumption that you want to stop the running tomcat, calls 'catalina.sh stop', waits a few seconds and checks for the pid file again. If the file still exists it runs kill -9 on the pid, hopefully *really* stopping tomcat.

If there is no pid file we assume that tomcat is not running, and run the launch command. In my case I set the java version first, then provide a path for the PID variable, then run 'catalina.sh start'

More details in the code comments.

UPDATED FOR MAC OS: added OS X-specific alerts.

Script attached

malahat : review form for front end of ecommerce

ER sent me copy of page with order forms on it for review.

Functionality seems fine with one exception: if user selects something, goes to shopping cart page, then returns to Malahat ordering page, the only way to get to the shopping cart page again is to buy an additional item and then in the shopping cart page delete the extra item. Page would probably have to be changed to php to allow me to grab the session id and display a "go to shopping cart" button.

Bunch of standards violations (elements not closed, uppercase element names, ampersands not escaped, missing quotation marks around attribute values). In anticipation of request, I rewrote page so that is validates against xhtml 1.1.

Also added bit of javascript and html div elements so that 3 order forms are hidden by default and the appropriate one is shown when the user clicks on a link on the page.

synchronize production sites with backups

MF reported a missing file in the Klondike site. Compared current production site against archive from 2008 and found a number of files missing, so uploaded the missing files to the production site. Then went through all the other sites and uploaded any missing files. Then synchronized the production sites against the backup on my computer.

Noted that there are a three non-site folders in the sites folder on the production site (and thus not backed up anywhere). Emailed MF to ask what she wants done with those.
