useful to ensure all the components are working in harmony. But as we move towards a 1.0 release
and announce Airavata is ready for production, we need to also do significant scalability
and reliability tests (run similar tests over a period of time). How about we program against
the Java SDK and write simple cron like test triggers?

Hi Amila,

I mean once we program against the client SDK, execute the tests on-demand, or deploy a Airavata
Server and schedule tests to run periodically. For instance there were some occasional issues
with ZooKeeper being incoherent (which are now fixed) but if such sporadic issues come up,
it will be good to pro-actively uncover them and fix them. Similar could be issues coming
from compute resources, these are not Airavata issues for say, but we need to ensure Airavata
can tolerate these well. So my suggestion is to come up with a framework to battle test the
system in as close to real world usage as possible.
