FulfILLment Development Update

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

We are now in the sixth quarter of FulfILLment development at this point in the project. The finish line is nearly in sight. ESI developers, Michael Smith and Mike Rylander have been busy at work streamlining corner cases to make the import of items smoother. The jangle core has been completely integrated into the main body of the FulfILLment code, providing speed advantage. The record ingest is more streamlined now. System tests with the iii connector and the Z39.50 interface have been successful. This will make building future connectors easier. The LAI layer can now pull records in from the iii connector and can show interlibrary loans to and from a library. By the end of this quarter, we hope to have a number of the FulfILLment specific interfaces done. Also, we will have completed more work on the UI and will have more to show in this area. Stay tuned.
