Microsoft announced the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to be released in summer 2016
This update will contain the Windows Subsystem for Linux, allowing users to run bash commands and Linux applications
In fact , WSL is already available in Insider Previews for those who susbscribe
so we run a few experiments on it from Titan perspective.
Good news is, we could:
-add the required packages with apt-get
-clone the Titan core github repository (https://github.com/eclipse/titan.core)
-execute Titan in single mode
Parallel execution run into problems on several levels, however this is not the final version of the WSL (currently it's based on Ubuntu 14.04; the final version will be apparently based on Ubuntu 16.04)
and obviously some parts are missing (ping, ifconfig does not run, although there is some networking - we could do apt-get update, curl etc . works too) so we hope it will improve.
If and when we manage to run Titan seamlessly on WSL , Windows 10 will constitute a great development environment for Titan and TTCN-3:
the Java plug-ins can be installed under Windows , with the core residing in WSL. When development is finished, the code can be pushed to a production server.
So far we recommended our users willing to use Windows to install Cygwin or MinGW on top; Win 10 with WSL could offer a comfortable , no-compromise replacement for both.
For the moment we will set this issue aside, waiting for the Anniversary Update; with that installed , we will re-examine the situation and try to solve any technical problems should arise.
Until then , stay tuned!
