Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Opennebula marketplace integration
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2012 17:49:10 GMT
Hi Sebastien ,

This does makes sense and perhaps seems to be the most logical approach to integrate marketplace
. I 'll be initiating some more discussions on the same with Jie and Brian and thereafter
we can have a plugin code available on github , as very rightly mentioned by you , unless
we can think off some other alternative solution.

Hi Pranav,

You are right in that the other marketplace thread has not yet reached consensus. We need
to bring it to consensus.
I will reply to it.

My understanding though is that folks are in favor of marketplaces in general but that the
code of such marketplace should not be in the cloudstack code. That means that you could put
your marketplace code on github but commit the "hooks" to it in cloudstack. In a very similar
fashion that we have several storage backends.

Where it links to opennebula's marketplace is if your hooks can be used to connect to their
marketplace. That'd be great.

Does that make sense ?

This would in turn display the images that are in the marketplace within the template UI.
