WebDev Meeting Minutes for March 23, 2004

WebDev Members,

Hi all,

We will have our regular WebDev meeting today (4th Tuesday of month) at 1:00. Instead of meeting in Smith 110 and disrupting student use of the facility, we will be meeting in the Smith 414 training center room.

The agenda items include:
  • In search of new web utilities:
    • Web Snagger
    • WYSIWYG browser editor
  • Network upgrade -- issues exposed by network switch upgrade
  • SSL cipher settings
  • Search engine status - Verity at over 95% of licensed capacity
  • Demo of new IT Impact web site demo (ISIR replacement)

As always, we will have time for group members to discuss any new, ongoing or planned web projects.
Joe

Meeting:

  • In search of new web utilities:
    • Web Snagger
    • WYSIWYG browser editor
  • Network upgrade -- issues exposed by network switch upgrade
    Network Services upgrading routers, etc... Several web applications working unexpectedly (i.e. Documentum). Mis-matchs between servers.
    Any applications that you have running unusually slower than normal before the network swap-overs, contact your LSP to get resolutions.
  • SSL cipher settings
    What ciphers to include in SSL? Old servers won't communicate with older browsers.
    Test check your secure sites with different browsers and/or versions.
  • Search engine status - Verity at over 95% of licensed capacity
    Search engine was by default not allowed to search query pages.....
  • Demo of new IT Impact web site demo (ISIR replacement)

PHP ( Paul ) - I have three that I'd like to mention briefly; one's not quite feature-complete, but the other two are about ready to use (and in production on a number of sites). These are all for PHP.
  • DB_Table http://wiki.ciaweb.net/index.php?wiki=DB_Table provides a system for you describe your SQL table schema inside a PHP class. Based on that description, creates your tables for you, then automatically validates inserts and updates for you, and creates input forms for you, all based on your described schema. It also lets you build automated "select" statements. DB_Table is database-abstracted and data-type abstracted, and works interchangeably with MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS-SQL, FrontBase, SQLite, and Oracle. On the to-do list are input form rules and input form default values, but those are all that's missing.
  • Yawp http://wiki.ciaweb.net/index.php?wiki=Yawp is "Yet Another Web Programming" foundation. This one class (and its configuration file) will handle authentication for you, set up a DB object, set up a caching object, and provide other convenience methods for securely handling user input. This makes setting up new web applications as easy as issuing "Yawp::start()".
  • Yawiki http://wiki.ciaweb.net/index.php?wiki=Yawiki is "Yet Another Wiki". It is built on Yawp, and allows both anonymous and authenticated users, access control lists on a per Wiki and per page basis, and a page hierarchy system to generate navigational elements.
If anybody is interested, I can do a separate talk about these later.
