  • MySql database used to store all relevant information (including annotations); data model extended and re-organized to provide the core of the application;
  • Organization in a set of plug-ins taking advantage of AI Bench plug-in system; improves modularity; makes easier adding new functionality and alternatives for different processes;
  • Code was re-organized using Java interfaces for all relevant concepts and processes, making easier the integration of third party applications; MVC notions from AI Bench are better used to provide organized GUIs; core plug-ins define basic data structures and the interface of basic processes;
  • Indication of progress in time consuming processes.
