Blog Entry for Week Ending April 28

by Springer, Matthew C. last modified Apr 28, 2017 03:33 PM
The twelfth week of Software Engineering II

This week for discussion, we learned about best practices for REST services.  Our discussion was oriented around an example URI and whether or not we followed the REST best practices.  The article provided some solid forms and explanations that could be used to show why it wasn’t the best possible URI for the task at hand.

I finally made progress on our Plone group project.  I put in quite a few hours over the weekend of trying to recreating the add-on and trying to figure out which file I should or should not have changed.  Eventually, it appeared and was working.  So all that was left to do at that point was to modify the design so that it followed our original diagram.  I made some progress on that front but have some effort left to put in.  The main difficulty with that will be chasing down the correct files that need to be changed and overriding them in the add-on.

We did not have a lab this week, but we did get a final project within OpenMRS.  The goal of the lab was to use the REST services provided by OpenMRS within a simple GUI.  Because of my familiarity with JavaScript and JQuery, I decided to leverage their power to do the project in a couple hours.
