ERGO PROGRESS 0903 INTECS

ERGO Progress March 2009: Intecs

Project Manager Assessment

The HMA-T deliverables are late. The planning has been discussed with ESA and the partner during the progress meeting theld the 17th of March. According to the HMA-T project plan the final version of the testing policy and the ETS for the CIM and EOP will be available middle of April. Intecs needs at least two weeks to check the tests and complement them with additional tests covering the ERGO requirements. Thus the CDR has been moved to the 7th or 8th of May (to be confirmed). The AR will take place one month later. Thus the 9th or 10th of June (to be confirmed). Moreover ESA would like to have the final presentation of the ERGO project at the Ground Segment Coordination Body workshop that will take place in ESRIN the 18th and 19th of June. These dates have to be confirmed by ESA. If the dates will be confirmed the consortium suggest to have the ERGO presentation the 19th.

Key Problem List 
  • The ERGO schedule is not compliant with the new HMA-T Schedule. Thus the a planning has been agreed with ESA. The late delivery of the testing policies is becoming an issue. The consortium woud like to finalize the project by middle of June (for budget and planning reasons). Thus if the conformance tests will not be delivered in time (by the 17th of April) Intecs will provide additional tests to cover the requirements and the conformance tests will be skipped.

2 CIM extension package availability 3 3 9 Schedule and Cost

Monitorthe extension package status and discuss with F.H.

The late delivery of the testing policies is becoming an issue. The consortium woud like to finalize the project by middle of June (for budget and planning reasons). Thus if the conformance tests will not be delivered in time (by the 17th of April) Intecs will provide additional tests to cover the requirements and the conformance tests will be skipped or an alternative solution will be agreed with ESA (e.g. Change Request). 

Regarding the CIM extension package, a draft version of the extension package has been provided by F. Houbie. The specification i under review and will be officially released in May. The reale date is not in line with the ERGO implementation. Thus, we are planning to develope the draft specification. If something will change in the final version, the modifications will be agreed with ESA (e.g. Change Request).

Deliverables List

The following documents have been delivered:

  • None 
WP1000: Project Management


Activities performed 

  • A progress meeting has been prepared and held (17/03/2009).
  • A draft version of the SPMP taking into account the new planning has been prepared (the CDR and AR dates have to be confirmed. The SPMP will be delivered as soon as the dates rae confirmed) 
  • The work on TEAM engine has been continued. The code has been finalized. Some tests have been done in order to test the engine with some catalogue implementation (ERDAS, EOLI proxy and the Toolbox). Moreover the TEAM Engine has been tested against the Buddata EBrr. Some bugs heve been corrected.
  • The TEAm Engine supporting the new tag structure has been uploaded on the ERGO wiki and made available to the HMA-T partners.
  • A draft version of a Word document defining the CTL tag has been prepared and sent to the OGC. The doc have been reviewed and te final version of the tag has been agreed.
  • The work done on the TEAm Engine has been presented at the OGC TC meeting held in Athens (30th of march- 2nd of April). During the meeting the tag structure has been furtherly discussed and the doc excerpt has been included in the official CTL documentation: 06-126r2 “Compliance Test Languageâ€? version 0.6 that has been submitted as an OGC Best Practices Document.
  • The new tag structure (small changes on the SOAP Header tag have been done) has been immediately implemented in the TEAM Engine code.
  • A Buddata EbRR draft site has been prepared. Some logos have been done and circulated inside the consortium.
  • New contacts with the OGC for the article preparation. The ERGo project will be published in the May OGC news as site of the month. Teh idea is to provide a page for the project and a separate page for each tool (Buddata EbRR, geoNetwork and the Toolbox).


Outcomes and results

  • 06-126r2 “Compliance Test Languageâ€? version 0.6 submitted as an OGC Best Practices Document.
  • Team2 package - draft - available on the ERGO WIKI
  • Draft Buddata EbRR web site (http://www.buddata-open.org/)


Problems and concerns

  • See "key problem list" and "risks" ections.


Plans for next period

  • The PMP will be updated and delivered to ESA (as soon as the dates of the CDR and AR will be confirmed).
  • The TEAM Engie code will be tested and provided to the OGC

 

 

WP2100: Requirement definition


Activities performed

  • none.


Outcomes and results

  • none.


Problems and concerns

  • none.


Plans for next period

  • This WP has been completed

 

WP3100 Integration of the OMAR open source implementation in the SSE Toolbox


Activities performed

  • Fixed found bugs both in Toolbox and ebRR integration APIs.
  • Added operations GetRepositoryItem, DescribeRecord and GetCapabilities.
  • Completed administration web pages for Harvesting and ebRR configuring.


Outcomes and results

  • none.


Problems and concerns

  • none.


Plans for next period

  • none

 

WP4100 Validation and Conformance testing


Activities performed

  • Continue writing tests for the EO Application Profile (OGC 06-131r5) of csw-ebRIM. The aim of the tests is to cover the requirements that will not be covered by the conformance tests (e.g. performance).

Outcomes and results

None


Problems and concerns

None

Plans for next period

  • A first draft of the Test suite for the csw-ebRIM EO Application Profile
