Whats new in Mobyle 1.5● Workspace management● Multiple data● Tutorials● BMID● BMPS● Availability
Advanced workspace management● it becomes hard to navigate and manage user data and jobs: ○ jobs have generic names: service name + date ○ data sometimes have generic names: parameter name or file name ○ regular users can have large numbers of jobs and data stored in their workspace● solution: provide a way for users to easily rename their important jobs/data or remove the ones which are useless
Advanced workspace management Bookmark as "x" Generic job/ bookmark names
Advanced workspace management Rename jobs Remove or sort jobs / data (click on the pen icon) bookmarks in the overview panel
Advanced workspace management jobs/data bookmarks can also be renamed in the Overview panels
"Multiple" data● Sometimes a program accepts a list of n files as input● In Mobyle 1.0.x, it is not possible to specify this behaviour● The workaround is to create web interfaces with a fixed but limited number of parameters which will be translated into files● not flexible enough!
"Multiple" data Three databoxes let you specify three files at most as program input
"Multiple" data You can add new databoxes "on the fly" with the [+] button You can remove them with the "remove" button
"Multiple" dataThe order of the inputs is preserved through Two files have been used as input the order on the command line for the same parameter
"Multiple" data You specify a "multiple" type by merely Process the value using the separator and theadding the "Multiple" prefix to the datatype command line formatting code in <format>
Tutorials● Tutorials in Mobyle 1.0.x are hard-coded: a limited list of HTML pages● Depending on the context of each server, one might want to add/remove such pages: ○ to provide help pages about a given service ○ to explain a given use-case● This requires the modification of Mobyle code (portal templates) which is overwritten on each update and may even break it altogether.● not flexible enough!
Tutorials Tutorials are HTML web pagesTutorials can be added, classified and which can now be deployed the same way searched the same way as the other as others "services"
Tutorials Locally stored dependencies can be stored in a local directory that has the same name as the XML file, minus its extension (just like viewers/widgets) A tutorial is a service XML consisting mostly of an <interface> tag that contains the displayed HTML
