Coding Update

(Changes can be reviewed in the Test Environment: http://tst.ole.kuali.org/portal.jsp )

In June, development began on the 1.0 coding efforts. There were a few bugs and enhancements from each module that were fixed. You may review them on the June 19 wiki page, however most of the development for this month was done behind the scenes:

• OLE was upgraded to Rice 2.2.5 and Java 7.

• The DocStore has incorporated an RDBMS repository to improve performance.

• Plans for unifying OLE’s interfaces are on their way (The Rice 2, library system, tab will be combined with the financial system).

• Coding efforts have begun on many of the 1.0 specifications but these have not yet been promoted to the OLE test environment.
