Description Ding-Yi Chen 2015-01-29 02:28:15 UTC
Description of problem:

Consideration of Server-side file conversion and REST service:
 * Server tasks
   * REST services to support all file types (raw upload of all formats that we support in the client)
   * 'File' project type will now support both okapi (.odt, idml, etc.) and Properties/Utf8Properties projects
   * Server to check file size and filename before accepting, reject files that are larger than our current maximum file size.
   * Use existing async framework to process the uploaded files.
       * One call to deliver the file, multiple subsequent calls to ask for progress
 * Sent file should send following metadata:
   * MIME type
   * File size  
   * File name 
 * Have the upload (from the JavaScript) use the REST API
 * project-type
    only File, but support all the file types in it
 * push
     source and translation
 * pull
     source and translation

Future enhancements:
 * File handling (future enhancement to allow thin java client)
   * Which files to be pushed/pulled
   * File mapping rule
   * Streaming for text base translation formats (e.g. gettext)
   * (Optional) compress the uploaded file. gzip is a good option.
   * Keep previous version of the uploaded file.

Michelle, we might want to raise the priority on this one. It's one that will let us have a thinner clients. We can discuss.

Comment 2 Michelle Kim 2015-03-02 23:56:33 UTC

Comment 5 Sean Flanigan 2015-04-29 04:26:39 UTC
Testing/requirements note: Should we make sure that you can still download translated properties/xliff files even if the raw document has been removed from the file system?
