[6052]5 3. Thumbnails extension 1.2 must be installed
7== Introduction ==
9This package is an extension package to BASE that can be used to
10simplify biosource and sample registration.
12 * The homepage for this extension:
[1463]15== Installation and updating ==
17 1. Download the reggie-*.tar.gz file.
18 2. Unpack the downloaded file to a directory of your choice.
[1463]19 3. Copy the 'reggie.jar' file to your BASE plug-ins directory.
20    Eg. the directory specified by the 'plugins.dir' setting in 'base.config'.
[2747]21 4. Edit and copy configuration files to their correct location. See
22    config/readme.txt for more information. If this is a first-time
23    installation shut down BASE and run '' script so
24    that additional reporter annotations and raw data columns are
25    created.
26 5. Log in to BASE as a user with Administrator priviliges.
27 6. Go to 'Administrate->Plug-ins & Extensions->Overview' page.
[1463]28    Run the installation wizard and select to install/update 'reggie.jar'.
[2747]29 7. Create a project and set it as the active project. This step is
[1310]30    optional but is recommended. Running Reggie without an active project
31    will generate warning messages later on.
[2747]32 8. Go to the Extensions->Reggie menu. Select the 'Installation wizard'
[1334]33    If the 'Reggie' menu is not visible try BASE->Reload permissions menu.
[2747]34 9. It should display a list with several error message about missing items.
[1310]35    Click on the "Create missing items" button to create them. If no project
36    was created in step 6, all annotatation types will be shared with the
37    'PatientCurator' group, otherwise only some will be shared to the
38    group and some will be shared to the active project.
[2747]3910. Manual fixes. Check the release information if any manual changes are
[1630]40    needed to items that already exists in BASE.
[2747]4111. Done.

121    (<basedir>/www/WEB-INF/lib/) to the ./lib/compile directory.
123 3. Type 'ant' to compile the code and generate the 'reggie.jar' file
124    in the project directory.
126 4. Use 'ant package' to create a downloadable tar.gz package.
128Tip: If you need different values for any of the properties defined in
129the 'build.xml' file, create a file named '' and set
130the values there.
