Great idea. We were thinking of providing 3 types of downloads from the
OSEE project site and would be very interested in any thoughts
One would be for the simplest of uses where we would bundle an open
source database, like Derby, with the release. This would allow the
user or small team of users to test out OSEE or use it for some simple
projects. One thing to keep in mind would be the difficulty of
providing a one-size-fits-all solution. We would need to provide an
easy way for the user to specify their requirements hierarchy in order
to configure OSEE correctly. This is where we like ORMF's solution of
providing schema's describing the models that could drive the
configuration and, as in ORMF, the creation of the specific editors
needed/desired by the user.
The second would be an OSEE release with database and demo data. This
would be our demonstration model that users could download and take for
a test drive. It would contain data and be tied tightly to screencasts
that describe the features of OSEE. We currently have a version of this
bundled with the PostgreSQL database (available via email, if
interested). Unfortunately, we can not provide it through the
Eclipse.org/osee site due to PostgreSQL's pedigree. Due to this, we are
feverishly trying to get Derby working for not only this solution, but
the previous one.
The third would be the deployment to a large and/or multi-site project
that would include all the steps necessary to configure and setup.
Although the simplest case could certainly work as a file-based system
and there are even solutions that exist that do this, our experience was
with 300+ users accessing artifact data in parallel. This is where re
ran into problems.
