#265 new enhancement

Enforce alignment adaption in merge tool

Reported by: westram Owned by: westram
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: ARB_MERGE Version: SVN
Keywords: Cc:


Before the merge tool allows to merge species it should enforce an alignment adaption check (similar to the enforced rename-check) including:

  • search for species occurring in both databases (using shortname)
  • check whether the alignment of these species differs between DBs
    • if different the column transformation table (TT) needs to be checked.

Check TT for..

  • complete coverage: each source-column (which has data) has to be defined in the TT
  • conflicts: all ambiguous source→dest column-assignments

If conflicts and/or missing coverage are detected

  • warn user that merging is only possible at the expense of alignment quality
  • display information about affected column-ranges
  • require that user confirms that he understood the problem and would nevertheless continue at his own risk (set a toggle)
