Since we are in the development phase, I think such changes before official
release are reasonable. Just let us (including all SEEKers) know any
changes we need to have in our implementations.

And also I have following thoughts regarding our production level software.

1. Official Ecogrid Env varibale(s):
    We need to have a official env variable such as 'SEEK_ECOGRID_HOME' in
our document
    and also in our build file for the installation of Ecogrid client/server

2. Setenv file for running Ecogrid client:
    We need to have files, setenv.sh for UNIX and setenv.bat for Windows,
for adding Ecogrid
    classes into 'CLASS_PATH' for user to run Ecogrid client manually/ in a
script. e.g.
    > java org.ecoinformatics.ecogrid.client.EcogridQueryClient query GSH

3. Debug Info: System admin should be able to turn debug on/off through a
config file.

4. build.xml:
    Current build.xml in CVS is generally for Metacat system. When I tried
to check in my part, I found
    we need to discuss about the some targets/properties so that we can have
an official and clean one
    for our software release. e.g.
        <property name="impl.package.dir"
    should be more specific as of following.
        <property name="metacat.impl.package.dir"
    In this case, I can check in SRB as,
        <property name="SRB.impl.package.dir"

5. A simple pre-compiled package for Ecogrid client.
   In build.xml file, we need to have a target to create a simple package (a
tar file) to include
   class files, jar files, etc along with a readme document.

Subject: [seek-dev] Some name issues in ecogrid

Hi, folks:

I am thinking to change some names in EcogridSoap.gwsdl which is the base
to create our stubs. The name change will cause lots of other files
changes include stub and implementation. So we should be careful and hope
it can be finalized as early as  possible. ( I don't want to change it
again, because it is boring and careful job :))

First, is the file name itself. I don't think EcogridSoap.gwsdl is good. I
would like change to EcoGridQueryInterfaceLevelOne.gwsdl or something like

Second, is the namespace of the file. I would like to change it from
"ecogrid://ecoinformatics.org/ecogrid-soap-1.0.0beta1" to

Third, is the portType name. From "EcogridSoapPortType" to

Any suggestion and comment are appreiciated!
