Ballroom Competition Planning and Execution
CompInaBox is divided into a number of components along functional lines. Following is a list of the different components, broken down according to their development status. Any component may have an experimental version at a lower developmental status. The drill down pages reflect the highest development status verison of a product. Features that are in an experimental verision will be tagged as such; and planned but nonexistent features will be tagged as "Coming soon".
- Chester -- scrutineering (note: Chester is not part of CIB proper, but is interoperable)
- "InfoWeb" -- information web site publishing
- "MCP" -- Master Control Panel for day of execution
- Port of Chester to Java -- Scrutineering application
The PHP scripting languange is planned to be used for all components except for those requiring a more sophisticated user interface than web-forms can provide. The rewrite of Chester and the scheduling tool are to example of modules that will likely use Java instead of PHP.
