SA4 (collecting in progress)


TSA4.1 - Management

  • Collecting weekly reporting


TSA4.3 - Liferay

TSA4.4 - OCCI for CMF

rOCCI framework
  • extended test coverage to improve QA on rOCCI-core (continuous, right now focusing on Occi::Collection and Occi::Model coverage)
  • a bunch of fixes for bugs discovered while implementing the server
  • working on a reference backend, towards the first alpha version
  • added a request parser
  • added Occi::Model integration (i.e. the server now correctly responds to GET /-/)
  • added support for resource_tpl and os_tpl for the dummy backend
  • continuously adding docs and unit tests (specs) for implemented features
ToDo for next week
  • continue working on rOCCI-server backends
  • in parallel, continue extending test coverage on rOCCI framework, primarily rOCCI-core
  • None (yet :-))
  • Still approx. one month (== Florian's contribution), no further delay
