My Weather Impacts Decision Aid MyWIDA is a software system that evaluates environmental impacts on air and surface combat systems using weather forecasts. The program ingests forecast data and references combat system environmental thresholds to determine and display the relevant impacts. MyWIDA is currently deployed on Oracles Glassfish application server and uses Hyper Structured Query Language SQL Database HSQLDB for its database. The program is being converted to allow it to also be deployed on RedHats JBoss application server while using Oracles database system. One of the drivers of this conversion is that it would allow MyWIDA to be seamlessly integrated into the weather component of the Distributed Common Ground System -- Army DCGS--A, a multifaceted intelligence software suite that is a US Army program of record. All modules of MyWIDA were successfully deployed on the new application server, with modified build scripts and updated web.xml files implemented. Further, the database was created successfully in Oracle after extensive editing of the scripts used with HSQLDB. Finally, Oracle database was fully integrated into MyWIDA, enabling the program to run on any combination of application server JBoss or Glassfish and database HSQLDB or Oracle.
