Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-123) Taverna: Android app Taverna Mobile
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2015 11:22:38 GMT


Stian Soiland-Reyes commented on COMDEV-123:

Hi, Larry.

Thanks for showing interest in this proposal! It sounds like you have very relevant experience,
and we would love to hear more about your ideas for this project, and what bugs you have found.

Would you be OK to sign up to the dev@taverna mailing list so we can discuss your proposal/ideas
within the whole community?

There are some videos of the app working on a good day here:

And description of it:

The app is meant to also initiate and monitor workflow runs on the Taverna Server - but I
believe the current code has hardcoded the location of the server (look for
which you would need to  modify to use your own installation.

> 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.
