WEB-SITE MAINTENANCE

July 29, 2011

TUESDAY: The development of the software parts required to prepare the web-site has been started.  The manual preparation software parts are being adapted for this application, The software part associated with preparing the picture web-page have been prepared.

THURSDAY: The software part associated with preparing the picture web-page has been modified to permit the picture width and height to be entered as parameters.  The software part associated with preparing the slogan web-page has been prepared.

PORTABLE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

July 29, 2011

SATURDAY: The stand-alone version of the include software parts library is operational relative to the preparation of a script needed to write the CPP #include statements.

MONDAY: In attempting to write the CPP #include statements, it has become apparent that the current script implementation is not as yet adequate. A script is still needed in as much as entries will be made throughout the class-definition sub-task.

THURSDAY: Extensive Script Modifications to the Software parts defining the Common Include library have been prepared. Hopefully, the needed flexibility in script definition and use has been achieved.

WEB-SITE MAINTENANCE

July 22, 2011

SATURDAY: A basic prototype web page using the frameSet/frame commands has been prepared. The noframes requirements as well as the differences between FireFox and Internet Explorer need to be explored.

SUNDAY: The ease of reading the web-site is currently being considered. Of particular concern is the scroll bar on both the text of the page and the links on the left hand site.

MONDAY: Adjustments to the font size appears to have resulted in an optimum web-site page.

TUESDAY: The noframes command has been successfully tested.

PORTABLE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

SUNDAY: The Include software parts kit have successfully integrated into the Class Definition sub-task. The Typedef software parts kit is next.

MONDAY: To be able to link the class definition output source code lines to the defining source definition file line number, the class definition steps (Class Definition Beginning, Includes, Typedefs, Routines, Data Structure, and Class Definition Completion) must be defined in one source definition file.

TUESDAY: To be able to use the script software parts to facilitate the writing of the statements associated with the Includes step, the script calling capability must include using a text expression as an argument.

THURSDAY: The script software parts library has been modified. Preliminary functional tests have been performed.

MANUAL MAINTENANCE

TOOL UPGRADE

July 15, 2011

The activity associated with the maintenance of Programmable Software Development Environment will be presented here.

It is planned to update the development task file by adding a command to allow access to a different development task file. The preparation of the Programmable Software Development Environment manual will benefit from more than one level of development task files.

SATURDAY: The software parts associated with the single point definition of any routine have been prepared. In the C++ environment, scripts for writing the associated class declaration statement have also been prepared.

MONDAY: The Class Definition Process will consist of a Class Definition Beginning Step, One or more Routine Definition Steps, and a Class Definition Completion Step.  Each Class Definition Process will be contained in one source definition sub-task; Each step will be defined by a source definition file. Integration with the data structure and include steps is next.

DEFINITION SUMMARY

July 8, 2011

The data that is associated with a class is a single data structure. A “Service Class” is where the data structure is contained in the data structure associated with the calling program. A “Client Class” contains its own data structure.

To render the development process strictly portable, the routines shall fall into the following three categories: The Process Category  processes the class data structure. The Status Category returns the current process status. The Data Output Category returns a specified data output.

To render the development process strictly portable, all public procedures will be implemented by a public wrapper that calls a private utility where the data associated with the class is passed as a parameter.
