  1. Overview of Mini-Edit and other Tools You Need to Send Entries From Your Std To the Registry This Presentation shows how the various tools are used to help you do this and keep your records in order. Access DB Oracle DB You Need to Get Back Updated Entries From the Registry To use in Your Std

  2. Making a standard, the old way, the new way Access DB Flat File To Registry Formatted Standard in Word Consensus Process ASN.1 Output The Old Way: 4 different set of final data The New Way: Common Data = Common Outputs Formatted Standard in Word ASN.1 Output Access DB Consensus Process XML Output Flat File To Registry

  3. Mini Edit is a tool make this easier You also load your work to the registry, sync with others, and use the results in your own work Oracle DB Access DB The Registry World The SDO World Mini Edit IEEE Registry As a steward you edit and manage records as well as produce standards and other products with the same information

  4. The Mini Edit tool One user / One Record per entry Each data concept (DE,MSG) has only one entry which is always the most current one and all edits go to this record. (prior versions lost) Typically a single standard per file At any given time you can get the most current data (and only the current data). When a standard is adopted, the then current DB is kept static to preserve it. Updates take place on a new database, eventually being balloted and adopted The Registry tool Multiple Users / Multiple Records per entry Many entries for each data concept, each reflecting a point in time and keeping all prior data in a revision history All standards in ITS are a kept in one file At any given moment in time you can get the most current or a past set of data entries AND: The ability to extract prior sets of data is how a configuration baseline between standards is maintained. New updates cause a new record, which must be sent to the SDO to adopt. How are the two approaches different?

  5. Interaction with The Registry is fairly simpleA simple file type is used to upload thingsSome people prefer interactive data loadingA simple file can be exported[I am ignoring the many minor errorsstill present in this] Web Editing Flat File Oracle DB Batch Editing IEEE Registry Flat File Multiple Past Records Reports

  6. A number of File Formats Can be produced by this, all with the same base data Web Editing Export Routines Flat File Oracle DB Batch Editing Access DB XML Output Mini Edit IEEE Registry ASN.1 Output Registry Parser Flat File Multiple Past Records Reports

  7. With the publishing side added, it all looks like: Web Editing Export Routines Flat File Oracle DB Batch Editing Access DB Other Data used in the standard XML Output Mini Edit IEEE Registry Word Files ASN.1 Output Registry Parser SDO Style Template Flat File Multiple Past Records Word Builder Recipe For each Standard Formatted Standard in Word Reports

  8. The Mini Edit tool Normal Installer script, will place things on your machine. A demo trash database to play with Current release is 0.3.77 and has decent editing abilities Auto converting to XML not fully in place but enough works to show it Still needs find utilities or the ability to import from the IEEE side Exporting as been fully added Registry Parser A standalone tool still, it take the batch download” of the IEEE registry export and converts it to various forms. [Will be merged with Mini Edit in time] In this release it produces an aceess db you can use with MiniEdit ASN and XML tag formas are still there With this release you can now take a bunch of data elements from the registry (from another SDO) and use them along with your own access database of entries to link and compare and publish them What is on the install CD disk:

  9. The Mini Edit tool Basics of operations and how to play with it Editing a data concept Auto converting to XML from other SDO entries Next steps of thing to add…. A demo of how the final database is used to produce a mature standard using First word to make a richly formatted word document Registry Parser Overview of this tool Importing to produce ANS.1 and XML Importing to produce an Access file A few hundred data elements from the registry will be processed Using the resulting file in Mini Edit The resulting file will be opened in Mini Edit than viewed, correcting entries, and adding XML content, then exported for re-loading to the registry. Demos of the tools in use

  10. Features Wanted Fill in some of the fields based on user ID and role Allow capturing comments of others for promotion review of draft entries Add Web message sending for comment collections and for auto-updating Start creating information reports on contents Provide document publishing side tools to other SDOs (needs discussion with FHWA on support to occur first) Add 14817 support for Descriptive Names and other items Create “automatic” 14817 conversion tools Add “rule checking” to reflect checking the CCC decisions of formatting. Provide reports on bulk XML results Add XML builder “blank stub” code creation functions See various word documents for other needs Features Now Done More Auto-fixing of many simple content problems from the IEEE tool Importing now produces both an ANS.1 an an Access file, allowing a complete loop of entries between IEEE and the tool. The XML parse now work, implementing the translation rules on any valid ASN. This is the big new item in this release and should allow every ASDO to produce its own XML listings for its own standards. Export produces stripped listings of ASN, XML and other format to support 3rd party tools and producing complete listings in standards. Short Term Road Map
