RESOLVED: dpdev1 maintenance
Service Restored

1:02 pm
jEdit DMG plugin stewards are developing a solution for use by campus webAgent developers and will maintain contact with them directly.  There will be no further updates to ITS Problems.
We have contacted business stakeholders and determined that no business processes have been affected by the loss of this code editor plugin.  If your area has seen significant impact to your business processes and the use of the DMG web interface is not a sufficient workaround, please contact me and the admins at jedit-admin@utlists.utexas.edu.


Tues 26 Aug 4:05 PM
jEdit/DMG plugin update:  While Mac client prototypes are quite promising, testing of prototype solutions has turned up a problem for Windows clients.  Stewards continue development, but the timeframe for delivery is unknown at this point.

The next update will be 4:00 PM on Wednesday 8/27, or earlier if we have more information.

Again, developers can still upload webAgent scripts via the DMG web interface.


Mon 25 Aug 4:01 PM
jEdit/DMG plugin update:  Stewards are testing prototype solutions today and still hope for a release by midweek.
The next update will be 4:00 PM on Tuesday 8/26, or earlier if we have more information.
Again, developers can still upload webAgent scripts via the DMG web interface.


Fri 22 Aug 4:23 PM
jEdit/DMG plugin update: Stewards have determined a viable solution and hope to have released it by mid-week next week.  The next update will be 4:00 PM on Monday 8/25, or earlier if we have more information.

We have contacted business stakeholders and determined that no business processes have been affected by the loss of this code editor plugin.  If your area has seen significant impact to your business processes and the use of the DMG web interface is not a sufficient workaround, please contact me and the admins at jedit-admin@utlists.utexas.edu.

Again, developers can still upload webAgent scripts via the DMG web interface.


Thu 21 Aug 3:54 PM
jEdit/DMG plugin update: Status is unchanged as work continues.  We will update the list in 24-hour increments during the work week.  The next update will be 4:00 PM tomorrow, Friday 8/22, or earlier if we have more information.
Systems staff have determined the root cause of this issue and are actively pursuing resolution via development efforts.

12:00 PM
jEdit/DMG plugin update: Systems staff continue to work on the jEdit plugin issue and are in contact with external groups who have useful expertise.
Developers can still upload webAgent scripts via the DMG web interface, so there has been a fully functional workaround available throughout.


9:38 AM
jEdit/DMG plugin update: The problem is at a much lower level than anticipated and will take serious analysis and perhaps development work for final remediation.
Please continue to use the web interface for uploads.


9:20 AM
Despite thorough testing, we have discovered an issue with the jEdit plugin for DMG this morning.
The workaround for webagent development is to use the DMG web interface (https://dpdev1.dp.utexas.edu/cgi-bin/dmg/index.cgi) to upload your webAgent scripts from your desktop.
Systems staff are investigating the issue.
