THE STATE OF THE ART IN GPII/FLUIDIC SERVER-SIDE DEVELOPMENT TOOLS

Current web server implementations:


·       Kettle

o   3.3.4 version of Express

o   Requires more documentation

o   Essentially deprecated in favour of GPII-Express, long term

·       Secured Cloud Based Flow Manager

o   integration of a fairly standard Express app into Kettle

·       GPII-Express

GPII-Express

Currently available:


·       serving up a documentation site

·       handlebars

·       makes use of the Kettle testing infrastructure

Not implemented yet:


·       web sockets

·       data source abstraction

o   provides an abstraction over different types of connections to sources of data (for example, loading a JSON file from the file system for testing vs. accessing a Couch database over HTTP)

·       configuration loading

GPII-Express Handlebars


·       Server and client side

·       Has data binding for bi-directional model updating

Medium Term Plan:


·       Tony's GPII-Express is the new deal

·       We need to implement better Web Socket support and bring over DataSource from Kettle

Quality Infrastructure and Developer Space:


·       https://wiki.gpii.net/w/Quality_Infrastructure

·       https://wiki.gpii.net/w/Developer_Space/Dashboard_Metrics

Hey Tony,

11:00AM EDT on Friday works for me and I believe also for Colin and
Giovanni. I hope your son feels better soon.

Take care,
