Blog entry for week ending April 28th

Individual/Group project

This week we talked more about REST and Postman and how to use them to do our Individual project. In lab on Wednesday I did most of my individual project which is writing a REST client for OpenMRS with a GUI. The GUI has a button that will show the results of all stress tests done on OpenMRS patients. One problem that i ran into is that i downloaded the Cors add on for Chrome but I didn't turn it on, so my ajax calls were not doing anything. I asked someone for help and the pointed out that Cors was turned off. Another problem that I ran into is that ajax calls are asynchronous so originally when I had three ajax calls I had no way of connecting the data because the database results could have come back in different orders for each ajax call. But then someone showed me how you can change the URL to include multiple parameters and that way I don't have to worry about ajax being asynchronous.

This week I also worked on my group project. I made a new theme in Plone and changed the CSS on it a little bit to get the toolbar the way that we wanted. For next week I want to figure out how to change the font on the toolbar and once that is done we should be done with our group project.

This weekend I plan on spending time reviewing all of our readings and Pogil activities that we had this semester to help me get prepared for the exam that is on Monday.
