Date Thu, 13 Feb 2014 15:40:19 GMT
Maarten Ectors created DIRSERVER-1958:

             Summary: Create a Juju Charm for ApacheDS
                 Key: DIRSERVER-1958
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Maarten Ectors

Juju ( is the default solution from Ubuntu to instantly deploy, integrate
and scale software on any public cloud, private cloud or server. The magic behind Juju is
called a charm. A charm can be written in any language. There are charms made in/with bash,
python, java, chef, puppet, ansible, docker, etc. 

To give you a 1 minute demo just go to:
and drag-and-drop "demo: instant" from left to right and you will see all major Big Data and
NoSQL solutions instantly deployed and integrated. Just click on Cassandra or Hadoop Slaves
and change from 10 units to 100 units to scale to a 100 node Cassandra or Hadoop cluster.
This demo is not having a cloud doing the actual deployment but you would be able to do the
exact same on AWS, HP Cloud, Azure, private OpenStack, bare-metal servers with
and even on a local Ubuntu machine [provided it had a lot of memory and CPU]. Make any changes
and see how you can instantly export a bundle and import it into another environment. For
more info see

Juju's strength is instant integration and scaling. Especially for ApacheDS this would greatly
help users see its immediate strengths in minutes. An ApacheDS charm that would have existing
relationships with the other charms like Tomcat, OpenVPN, OpenERP, MySQL, Hadoop, Hive, HBase,
Gitlab, Jenkins, etc. would allow anybody to quickly have their credentials stored in one
place and instantly reuse them everywhere. You might also want to checkout There
are many more charms that would benefit from ApacheDS integration.

PS Jean-Baptiste Onofre already is writing a Karaf charm so he can give some good guidance.
Additionally at Ubuntu we are happy to give a free remote training on how to write charms.
