Ramesh A commented on DTACLOUD-105:
-----------------------------------

Applied the latest patch and performed a sanity testing against this patch.  Below are the
observations.

Sanity Testing Observations:
======================
1. Opening the url after the installation, i.e, say http://localhost:3001/api displays the
following ec2@default(default choice being the us-east-1 though) and below displays available
options of the EC2 regions as shown in the Dcloud-API.png
2. Once an region is selected(by clicking on the link), the url changes respectively(eg: http://localhost:3003/api;provider=us-west-1)
and the modules display corresponding information related to that region(realms, images, instances,
etc).
3. Also, once the selection is done, application displays the highlights the region in the
UI, i.e., eg: ec2@default changes to ec2@us-west-1 

To Improve:
=========
Links are barely separated, seems like its a single link unless the mouse click.  
Spaces between them would differentiate them properly or a drop down would make more sense.
Refer the Dcloud-API.png for more information

This is the first impression on the implementation after the sanity testing

> Deltacloud API should have provision for changing the regions for EC2, so that user will
be able to choose different regions, availability zones and launch AMI's which are specific
to those region.
> Current Implementation:
> ==================
> When a user wants to start an AMI via Deltacloud API, he is prompted with the AMI's/
availability zones, which are specific to "Amazon EC2 (US East - N. Virginia)" region i.e.,
us-east-1a, us-east-1b, us-east-1d.
> Proposed Implementation:
> ===================
> User should be given an option of selecting different regions, availability zones and
list AMI's which are specific to the selected regions. 
> This gives the following option for an user:
> 1. To list the AMI's which are available at different regions
> 2. Launching AMI in different regions
> PS:
> ===
> Current implementation allows us to fulfill these criteria by changing the URL manually(not
an user friendly way) and specifying the providers details. e.g., 
> http://localhost:3001/api;provider=eu-west-1/images
> http://localhost:3001/api;provider=eu-west-1/realms
