GDS coding template with technical presentation released
By tf on Feb 15, 2008
We released the GDS coding template under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) Version 1.0, along with a technical presentation, which can also be delivered as a workshop. It gives an introduction into cluster agent development and then explains the GDS coding template in great detail.
The GDS coding template was developed by several engineers (including Neil Garthwaite, Detlef Ulherr and myself) and is based on experience and enhancements collected during the development of several standard agents in the past 3-4 years, which are also part of Open HA Cluster today.
The GDS coding template and the presentation is available on: http://opensolaris.org/os/community/ha-clusters/ohac/GDS-template/
It enables you to focus on the application specifics during custom agent development and allows a rapid development cycle.
If you develop a custom agent by using this GDS coding template, we also encourage you to contribute it back. We will be happy to add an entry to the third party HA agent repository or even sponsor an OpenSolaris project for it.
For any feedback or questions feel free to ask on the ha-clusters-discuss mailing list.
