Sun's Open HA Cluster Contribution to Open Source Community

Today Sun made its first contribution of HA Cluster source-code to the OpenSolaris community. With this first release of the agents source Sun aims to make it easier and quicker for community members to develop new agents for Sun Cluster. System administrators, developers, and ISVs who want to make their applications highly-available should all benefit. You can check out the HA Clusters community group on opensolaris.org. You can also sign up to participate in the discussion group

The press release describes the phases of the release over the next 18 months. The HA Clusters community will cover all topics related to High-Availability Clusters, not just the open-source version of Solaris Cluster.

Today's release contains the source for almost all the Sun Cluster agents (approximately 135,000 lines of code). The current list of open-source agents includes agents for many open-source applications such as Apache Web Server, PostgreSQL, Apache Tomcat, and MySQL, as well as closed-source applications such as Oracle Application Server and BEA WebLogic Server.

Sun has also released the source-code for the Dataservices Automated Test Suite (DATS), which tests the Solaris Cluster Agents code. DATS is part of the Solaris Cluster Automated Test Environment (SCATE).

“CTI for TET”, which is part of the SCATE test infrastructure, has been separately open-sourced on the testing community. This framework contains over 24,000 lines of code and supports both Solaris Cluster and ON test suites:  http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/testing/testsuites/ctifortet/
