Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-123) Taverna: Android app Taverna Mobile
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2015 21:59:38 GMT


larry akah commented on COMDEV-123:

i have built and ran the android app placed on the github repo here:,
since i am using eclipse for my android development. i found some bugs in the app as concerns
the life cycle and for example in the search for a given workflow, i found some useless progress
dialogs and extra progress mechanisms which clutter up the UI and end up blocking it. The
progress dialog used is no longer advised. I am working to see how the app itself functions
as a whole so as to better understand the nature and specific requirements of the project.
It would require fixing the bugs that arise in order to see the other deep functionalities.

> Taverna Mobile: A year or so ago in conjunction with a University of
> Manchester undergraduate we developed an Android app to run Taverna
> workflows available on myExperiment (
> using Taverna Server. 
> It is available here Later on we updated it
to use Ahe android IDE from google/idea and the gradle build system as well
> as fixing some of the dependencies, see
> The code relies on some APIs from google and apache which have moved
> on since then eg the https libraries which needs updated.
> The project would be to:
> 1) fix the ssl/https parts and use the latest version of taverna server
> 2) update the code to remove some legacy dependencies and use the
> latest APIs
> 3) improve the UI and responsiveness
> 1) & 2) are the most important bits with 3) being a bit extra
> depending on how the first bits progress.
> The project would interest students with a good grounding in Java
> looking to get into Android mobile development.
> You would be part of he Apache Taverna community
> which would be giving advice and feedback on your
> app.
