Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2015 11:58:01 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1196:

[~kishorekumar]: Reformatting is fine but we cannot accept reformatting that makes it impossible
to read the embedded java code.  It looks like your reformat used Eclipse or something like
it.  Eclipse, though, is awful for formatting JSP; it presumes that there is little logic
in Java, because there is no concept of bi-language indenting.  In the MCF JSP's, we have
both java code and HTML, and each of these has an independent level of indent.  Without doing
that, it is simply impossible to understand the java code

Can you describe why you need reformatting in order to proceed with this ticket?

I think we earlier agreed that it was a good idea to replace tabs with two spaces, which would
have basically preserved the independent indents.  But the formatting you checked in tied
indenting levels from HTML to the Java, which I don't think can work.

If I don't hear from you by tomorrow morning, I'll go ahead and revert the trunk commit.

> Hi,
> I have been working on a new User Interface for ManifoldCF.
> This UI is based on Bootstrap, jQuery and some other opensource scripts.
> Only the index.jsp will be loaded once and other page are rendered using AJAX call, making
it more responsive and modern.
> Please find the attached screenshots.
> *Backward compatibility:*
> Since most of our tab comes from connectors, those tabs will be displayed as it is with
no immediate attention required. (see sample screenshot attached)
> *What next?*
> In future we can add Charts to our reports where ever applicable, so that it will be
more user friendly & informative for end users.
> Can make use of Web socket to notify exception or error to users as Notifications.
> *Browser compatibility*
> Has been tested with most latest browser and IE10, will try to add support for IE8 with
acceptable degradation.
> Any suggestion, concern much appreciated.
