Project Abstract

The essential requirement for this project is to parse inbound messages, with an initial focus to SMS. The project is specifically aimed at the CERT usecase where they wish to process responses to deployment notifications. Or in other words, to handle replies to deployment requests. Currently the message parsing is done in the core code i.e. modules/s3/, to be particular, in the parse_message() method. The parsing rules will be defined in private/templates/default/ which allows for hosting of multiple profile options in the main code. This also enforces the on-going work in the development of the Profile Layer, in which deployment-specific files are separated from core code.The parsing module utilizes a data model "msg_workflow” to link the source and the workflow to schedule tasks. Processing of OpenGeoSMS encoded messages is also an important area to work on especially for the existing Android Client, for which it will be of real use. Also to provide robustness and extend the existing code, the pyparsing Parser module can be incorporated or any other parsing generator; which will be subjective to the parsing needs.
