Yesterday at the Topic Maps 2009 conference in Oslo I gave a presentation called ‘A Vision for a Topic Maps World’. In this presentation I summarised some of the key successes of Topic Maps and then looked forward to how Topic Maps can work on a more global scale.
A couple of customers have reported an error when starting up the Topic Map Index Service installed by the Enterprise Services 1.0 installer. When trying to start the service, the user will see a dialog displaying a message like:
13/02/2009, NetworkedPlanet are pleased to annouce the release of version 3.1 of the TMCore SharePoint Module.
We recently received a bug report from one of our customers about the SharePoint Module not creating a topic when a new page was created in a Page Library. Normally, topics are created whenever an item is added to a list using SharePoint’s ItemAdded event. However in this case the ItemAdded event handler was failing and so the topic was not created. Further investigation revealed that the ItemAdded event handler was not receiving the correct event information - in particular the reference to the new list item was null. This means that our event handler cannot determine the identity of the new list item and so cannot create a topic.
