Java on Learning Registry…

The JLeRN Hackday was such an involving and learning event. Got few more doubts clear with Nick and got a chance to speak with Scott regarding his work on LRJavaLib – the Java library for the Learning Registry services. I downloaded bencode from http://bit.ly/AecnXF, untar it, and installed the jar file using Maven.

Now am trying to develop some Java code to automate all the services using JAX-RS using Eclipse IDE.

Also need to look at the Data Services proposal, which seems quite promising from the Developer’s list on http://bit.ly/wScfDk

Some more exploring…

Hi this is Bharti and am one of the developers here at Mimas and working with Sarah and Nick on the JLeRN project. I got lucky enough to get chance to work on this exciting experimental work on establishing a UK node. and I had a good one day of self learning about the Learning Registry (LR) and then got chance to speak with Dan Rahek from the LR team. Quite a reminder of what he presented on LR project in the Repository Fringe event last year in Edinburgh.

Well, there are definitely many challenges to face, but am sure we can crack the puzzle. Worked to establish a node on the Windows Server 2008 machine and after some tweaking and self learning got through quite far installing the node.There are some issues on getting Nginx setup right though.

We have the hackday coming up on 23rd January and hope to get some nice JORUM data to play with. There are different mechanisms to let the data talk to the node, and I am keen to explore the Java library that may be used to publish data to, and harvest from a LR node..

Keep watching this space for more developments in this R&D project!
