Modeling Part Completed

The documentation for TheonModel (managing the physical database schema and related configuration for TheonCoupler, TheonUI and TheonPortal) has been completed and including the illustrations. It is in principle a first draft, but its been through a number of revisions so its a fairly solid first draft. The command toolchain is clearly defined now so we can start implementing that – all the underlying technology has been done already, or at least proven in principle, so its just tidying and wrapping it up properly here to do. The documentation for TheonCoupler is practically done as well now, should be completed within the next few days. Still got architectural documentation to do on TheonUI and TheonPortal to do (bits and pieces on usage and configuration are there already under TheonModel). Need to write the release/package management documentation as well (although the toolchain for that is at least already defined and coded up). Finally the system installation/configuration documentation needs to be done – although that is a little bit in limbo to see whether we can get a viable standalone LCFG config up and running. The remaining documentation will proceed in parallel with getting the TheonModel toolchain implemented as that is really the primary goal of this project.

Started back on Documentation

So after a long break (I think May was the last time this was touched) got back into doing the documentation. It probably took a day just to orientate to where we were. Anyhow the main purpose of doing the documentation before the technical work is complete is to pin down the workflow and hence what the commands and options will need to be provided by the wrapper toolkit. This so far has been quite successful in identifying any gaps in the technical implementation (due to the attempt to reflect real use cases).
