Improved advanced search and better context sensitive help - build #80 deployed
By Ari Shamash on Aug 25, 2009
Yesterday, we deployed build #80 of the Sun Software Library into production, enhancing the library functionality in the following areas:
- Additional search options:
you can now limit or filter search results based on a tag. For
example, you can now search for all entries that have a particular
keyword and are tagged with a particular tag. To do this, when you
open up the "more options" dropdown right under the main search area,
you'll notice a new input field titled "Tag". In this field, you can
type in a tag name that you want to use to filter the search results.
This field is "auto-completing", if you type in the first few letters
of a tag name, you can select the full tag name from the dropdown list.
You can see this additional functionality in action:
- Improved context sensitive help:
We have also improved our context sensitive help functionality in the
add/edit popup. Specifically, we've automated the functionality of
copying the FAQ questions from our Sun Software Library help center to
this panel, improving the overall quality of the context sensitive help
available. This is another example of how we strive to automate as
many of the manual processes that we have, so that we can provide a
better service at a reduced delivery cost.
