Today's issues are figuring out why my common name search is buggy and then proceeding onto dealing with searching multiple databases for images. At the same time I'll also need to make inroads into writing UI elements for each of these features and then integrating the code and the UI stuff into the PhyloWidget program.
The buggy-ness of the common name search refers to the fact that when I post data to the ubio.com search form and get the resulting HTML page, the page I get is not the same as the page I see when I do the same search in my browser. My code receives the HTML for an "Advance Search" page, rather than a results page. I've had my program print out the URL it's requesting, and it's the same as the results page URL in my browser, yet the HTML is for an advance search page. Totally strange. Any ideas, anyone?
I'm also concerned about the SVN process, because whenever I want to update to a new revision of PhyloWidget, Eclipse overwrites the one I'm currently using. If I make changes and start including my own code, I want to be able to download revisions without deleting my own work. If you know anything about how to manage this, please share.
Glad to be back on track, but it's an uphill battle as always!
