        1. Extension of ETICS Administration Web App with TestSystem specific Roles. DONE! 2. Workflow Designer integration into eticsDev Done: * Automatic login into the WorkflowDesigner is completed by 4dsoft and Sztaki * Sztaki had completed with an install package for the workflow designer. * The package contains: tomcat 5.5, jdk 1.6, workflowDesigner apps., install * scripts. (TESTED and it's working!) * Workflow Xml and user info is correctely sent by workflowDesigner to Etics BuildSystem (TESTED!). TODO: * we have to upload the workflowDesigner install package into the etics CVS. * we have to add the Workflow Designer into etics install scripts. Jozsef and Marian is working on that task. 3. Execution of the xml output generated by Workflow Designer by the ETICS web service DONE: - Most of the parser code have already been finished only a few test missing! - "public String processWorkflowXml(String xml, String userID)" added to the BuildSystem Web Service TODO: - The Parser code has to be added to the BuildSystem WS. and to test it ! Joszef and Andres work on this task. After the internal verification in 4D Soft the parser code has to be uploaded to the web service (processWorkflowXml()). (Jozsef will send the code to Andres to verify and to upload the code into processWorkflowXml()). If the parser code is uploaded and the basic functionality is verified by Andres – no errors, the generated structure is correctly saved in the database - then we will do some real multimode tests (functional tests). 4. ETICS client extension with etics-plugin-manager Done: - Some month ago Jozsef has extended the etics CLI with some TestSystem functionality: * interactive management for all the plugins: downloading, installing, deleting plugins * the new cli services using the TestSystem Web Service to obtain neccesarry data. TODO: - 4DSOFT has to update the existing CLI testsystem functions. - we have to adapt the TestSystem for installing plugins instead of the existing xml-repository procedure. - furter investigation needed for the complete PluginManager replecament

      ETICS USIS (User Satisfaction Improvement Strategy) 5m
      Improving user satisfaction about usage of the ETICS services is critical. ETICS is often perceived as slow and difficult to use. This is due to a number of factors: 1) Need for technical improvements in speed and usability 2) Disinformation or third-party rumours 3) General resistance to adopt 'procedures' We need to understand what to focus on and have a plan to address this issue as a combination of technical enhancements, training and dissemination. Where to start?
