README

Credits
-------
Written by Integrated Statistics employee Morgan Wahl. Written under a contract
with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Specifically, with
the Protected Resources Department of the North-East Regional Office.

Uses the 'silk' iconsets from famfamfam.com (Mark James) (CC3.0-AT license)
The OLE icon is derived from one of these.

Uses the sorttable.js script (with some very small modifications) by Stuart
Langridge (X11 license).

Dependencies
------------

These are the versions used during development. Earlier (or later) ones may
work.

Python 2.5
Django 1.2.5
django-extensions 0.6
django-reversion 1.3.3
django-tinymce 1.5
pytz 2011c
lxml-2.2
xhtml2pdf 0.0.3
 (xhtml2pdf requires a few other python libraries, however these will be pulled
 in automatically by it's setup.py)

when deployed via mod_fcgid another python package is required:
    flup 1.0.2

if using the Oracle backend you need:

cx_Oracle 5.0.4
    which requires:
    
    Oracle instantclient-basic 11.2.0.1
    Oracle instantclient-sdk 11.2.0.1

I recommend using virtualenv and adding the following to its bin/activate
before building and installing cx_Oracle

# my additions for cx_Oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=${VIRTUAL_ENV}/lib/instantclient_11_2
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$ORACLE_HOME

unzip the instantclient packages to that lib directory before building
cx_Oracle. To use a tnsnames.ora file you can then copy it to 

${ORACLE_HOME}/network/admin/tnsnames.ora

This path is case-sensitve! Despite the Oracle docs, it must be lowercase.

IMPORTANT:

Django's Oracle backend contains a bug in

django.db.backends.oracle.base.DatabaseOperations.field_cast_sql

The call in SQL to DBMS_LOB.SUBSTR should be removed or else searching Cases by
name causes an error.

This bug was still present at revision 16016 of Django (after version 1.3).
