This product, eke.ecas, provides display and RDF ingest of science data from the EDRN Catalog and Archive Service (ECAS) into the EDRN Knowledge Environment (EKE). EDRN uses the EKE to make it easy to discover, share, search for, and retrieve all of EDRN's collective knowledge, including cancers and other diseases, biomarkers, specimens, investigators, participants, studies, protocols, and-as in the case of this product-science data.

Although intended for the EDRN public portal, it can be installed in any Plone compatible site.

This software is developed by the EDRN Informatics Center at JPL, operated by the California Institute of Technology, for NCI.


Use Buildout with the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe.

  • Add eke.ecas to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    % ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package's configure.zcml file.
