Colombian BCH

Activities done to put the Colombian BCH on line

To establish infrastructure and human team.

AvHI as NFP

Workshop in Curitiba

(March 2006)

Workshop in Colombia(Aug 2006)

UNEP-GEFRegional specialist for Latin-American

To establish alliance with other information systems available in Colombia like CHM and BIS

To establish communication with Competent National Authorities - CNA

To identify the available information and its conditions

To choose the Nationals Authorized Users for each CNA

To design the web site and to define services according to national needs

slide6
Colombian BCH: http://www.bch.org.co
  • Cartagena Protocol
  • Biosafety in Colombia
  • Competent National Authorities
  • National legislation
  • Projects
  • News
  • WB-GEF- project components
  • Researchers catalog
  • Content management
  • Among others…
slide7
Colombian BCH
  • What do we use on the development process?

Integrated Development Environment: debugging, project management, building and deploying

You can use also: NetBeans, JBuilder, WebSphere Studio or JDeveloper

Graphic design tool to create web sites / Internet applications

You can use also: FrontPage

Visual Data base administration: create backups, administrate data bases, change tables and attributes, establish relational rules, etc.

You can use also: MySQL, Sybase

Application server to run the application and make it available through the web

slide8
Colombian BCH
  • Where the Colombian BCH runs?
    • Linux server with Red hat distribution
    • JBoss as Application server
    • PostgreSQL as Data base manager
    • JAVA as programming language: JSP and Servlets
    • JDBC access
    • AXIS Java API to use the WebService
  • Common Formats are currently available in Spanish, ready to be used by the Competent National Authorities
slide9
Resources needed
  • Human team:
    • Software developer
    • Coordinator
    • National Biosafety Project
  • Hardware infrastructure:
    • Server
    • PC for development and testing process
    • AvHI Data Center
  • Time:
    • 1 year, 1/2
slide10
Colombian BCH
  • It was developed on Java using the Model View Controller pattern, where:
  • - The Controller is in charge of receiving the entry events and to manage the application flow. This delegates the HTTP requests to the proper manager
  • - The Model represent the BCH’s logic
  • - The View is composed of JSPs, which shows the HTML forms and data

Application server

slide11
PostgreSQL

Data Base Connection

  • It works through Data Access Object (DAO) concept to:
  • To get and encapsulate the data source access, unlinking the BCH logic from data
  • The DAO establishes the connection with the DB Manager to get and keep the data
  • DAO allows:
  • To create reusable implementations
  • To give installation flexibility/configuration
  • To reduce the complexity of the BCH logic implementation
  • But…
  • It increases application design complexity, since it is necessary to create more classes
slide12
AXIS component to understand WSDL files

Web Service comunication

  • It has established communication with Central BCH
  • set cla=C:/jboss-4.0.2/server/default/deploy/axis-1_4/lib/
  • 1. java -cp %cla%/axis.jar;
  • %cla%/log4j-1.2.8.jar;
  • %cla%/saaj.jar;
  • %cla%/wsdl4j-1.5.1.jar;
  • %cla%/commons-logging-1.0.4.jar;
  • %cla%/commons-discovery-.2.jar;
  • %cla%/log4j.properties;
  • %cla%/jaxrpc.jar
  • org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java
  • http://bchtraining.biodiv.org/service/3.0/service.asmx?WSDL

AXIS: Apache Extensible Interaction System - OpenSource implementation of SOAP which provides web service tools

SOAP: Simple Object Access Protocol

Web-Service Description Language, URI which enables the Central BCH to publish its WebService, and allows the clients to call its methods/operations

Progress and technical issues related to

implementation of the national BCH

  • CONTENT
    • BCH Objective in the Project WB-GEF-Colombian Government
    • Useful features in the BCH Central Portal
    • Constraints on making information available
slide18
Constrains on making information available
  • There is a lack of documentation to register Information
  • (User level)
    • • Sometimes it is difficult to know which information has to be put in each category of information.
    • Is difficult to find information of filled formats (as examples) in some categories of information
slide19
Constrains on making information available
  • There is a lack of documentation for the software developers
  • There is no way to reach to documentation page:
  • http://bch.biodiv.org/help/interoperability/webservice3/default.shtml
slide20
Law WS registration

Step1: National Competent Authority

NCA - WS registration

Step2: Law - WS registration

ID - NCA

Constrains on making information available

  • There is a lack of documentation for the software developers:
  • (Programmer level):
    • A software developer doesn’t know the steps that he has to implement. To register a Law, you have to register first the National Competent Authority AND keep the ID that you give to it, link this with the law register. We needs the game rules.

A country can’t assume that costs

slide21
Constrains on making information available
  • There is a lack of documentation for the software developers:
  • (Programmer level):
    • The XSD published for the Web Services don't match with the XML files you have to send. It is difficult to know what to write on the XML tags for sending them.
slide22
The XSD does not exist to create this file. Colombia doesn’t find this sintaxis through the Central Portal, but with the direct help of the UNEP-GEF.

Constrains on making information available

  • (cont):
  • There is a lack of documentation for the software developer
  • The description of the mechanisms for interoperability with the BCH is not very clear
slide23
Constrains on making information available
  • There is a lack to register Information:
  • In the Central Portal BCH there is more than one unique identifier for the same LMO (Example). In the OECD page there is only one register for each LMO.

Mechanism for avoiding the duplication of registers of new LMO´s unique identifier, by giving the existing list for selection and not giving the possibility of new text entry.

slide24
Constrains on making information available
  • There is a lack of documentation for the software developers:
  • (Programmer level):
    • • There are different Web Services versions and the toolkit does not show the differences between them.
    • • There is not a standardized database model to help avoid misunderstandings of the software developers.
slide25
Constrains on making information available
  • There are inconsistencies in the documentation:
    • Sometimes the BCH give a guide to build the information IDs (http://bch.biodiv.org/help/interoperability/webservice3/methods/register.shtml), but it doesn’t give a standard route
    • “The IDs must be universally unique. We encourage organization to include their domain name in the IDs (e.g. http://www.gov.zz/decision/4323 or
    • http://www.gov.zz/870F72A0-BD9F-4d71-9983-34FAEAD29399)”.
slide26
Constrains on making information available
  • There is a lack of tools for implementation of the national application with its requirements:
    • The Central Portal BCH offers the Thesaurus XML files for building the formats and each term has associated an identifier (A1DB53EB-7015-4f60-910C-F226B012A37C). It is not clear how this identifier was built, neither if this identifier should be used in the national applications.
slide27
Conclusions
  • Detailed documentation
  • To improve the Central BCH forums
slide29
Multiple register for the same Unique Identifier

In Central Portal BCH
