Answers on issues

  1. Claim: “Changing the language in RodosLite does not affect the language displayed in the main RODOS system”
    This is correct. Due to the separation of RODOS and RodosLite and the very RODOS design it will never be possible. However the language switching between RodosLite and JRodos is synchronized.
  2. Claim: “Changing the dispersion model in RodosLite is lost after restart”
    The default dispersion is configured by the main RODOS system. RodosLite reads this configuration and displays it accordingly. It can only change the dispersion model for the current run respectively session but never change the default. If you want to change the default dispersion model you have to edit the RODOS system configuration file.
  3. Claim: “RodosLite always displays summer time [CEST] even in winter”
    RodosLite uses [CEST] as a time unit measurement not as a timezone summer time indicator, i.e. the timezone displayed is Central European Time (CET) but taking daylight saving into account before displaying the actual time. Using CEST during winter time displays the same time as CET. Or simplified: the unit CEST is not an indicator for having summer time but a rule how to display a time in general, in that case adding one hour for display during summer.
  4. Claim: “Using an text editor to change an XML interface file RodosLite crashes loading the file again if I use the character & in the comments”
    This is indeed true for the characters <, >, and & are reserved expressions in XML files. However you can achieve the desired result by using the following expression:
    • &lt; instead of <
    • &gt; instead of >
    • &amp; instead of &
  5. Claim: “How can the list of results, which are pre-selected in RoLite, be defined or modified by the user ?”
    The administrator guide in the documentation section contains a detailed description on how to set the default values in RodosLite. Additionally each user can always load a previously stored result list.
