Subject RE: deploying apps on a remote cluster
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2014 14:54:18 GMT
I have inherited a complex s4 application based on s4-0.5.  I am supposed to upgrade it to
0.6. Due to the poor documentation I am a bit mixed up. Are there  major changes between those
two versions. Please help as I have to evaluate the difficulties ahead.

You can't "start" s4 nodes remotely. You must start them by passing the zookeeper connection
string so they can bootstrap to a zookeeper cluster. How to start them is specific to your
setup and infrastructure, a basic way would be by scripting and using ssh.

Not sure what you mean by "gradle download". Normally you would package the app locally, then
make the package available somewhere. Easiest way is on a shared file system (like NFS) but
you can also make it available through http (static file serving). When deploying, you just
specify the location of the package and nodes will install the app automatically.

Hope this helps,
