Subject Re: Ways to use Brooklyn during development?

Hi Chris,

Great to hear you're trying out Brooklyn!

For running Brooklyn serverless, you can either just run the Brooklyn 
process on your laptop telling it to deploy to localhost (or to local 
VMs), or you can interact with brooklyn programmatically to embed it.

You'll likely find the separate Brooklyn process easier to setup.

For many blueprints, they are written to be able to deploy to localhost 
(but some require sudo rights, and passwordless ssh).

In yaml, you just say:

    location: localhost

For deploying to local VMs, note that we're using Apache jclouds under 
the covers.

You can therefore deploy to anything that jclouds supports (and a few 
more things).

I know that *Svet Neykov* did some work to be able to deploy to Vagrant 
(so that it launches/terminates the VMs for you).

You can also use a "byon" location (bring your own nodes), configuring 
Brooklyn to target existing ssh'able VMs. You just supply the IPs, 
username and credential (if it's not your default ~/.ssh/id_rsa or 

Lastly, you can deploy to Docker containers using the downstream Clocker 
project [1].

Also of interest is a maven plugin that allows you to hook Brooklyn into 
your build process.

You can use Brooklyn to spin up your multi-node app (e.g. several VMs or 
docker containers), and inject its endpoint into a test suite. Your test 
suite can then run against that app instance. The app will be torn down 
once the test suite is complete.

*Sam Corbett* wrote that, and can provide more information.

able to provide a blueprint and have that executed locally, eventually setting up some vagrant
vms and provisioning them.
