Many thanks for the interest on the CAMF project proposal!
Yes indeed, TOSCA has a great potential concerning Cloud application management! With the upcoming v.1.1 of the specification, we have a greater opportunity to develop interesting tools withing the scope of open-source Cloud projects.
We decided to join the community under the Technology umbrella since we are trying to integrate various technologies under the Eclipse RCP in order to achieve Cloud Application Management. These technologies include (1) TOSCA for application blueprinting, (2) RSYBL for elasticity requirements specification, (3) Chef for contextualization, (4) JClouds for interrogating/interfacing with IaaS resources, and finally (4) Monitoring systems to close the loop. The idea is to provide all this functionality to Cloud application developers under a unified RCP-based framework, that would minimize the need of leaving their development workspace. So in essence the perspective Cloud actor, develops (JDT/CDT/etc) its application, and consequently deploys, monitors and manages it within the same environment.
Nevertheless, as you already mentioned, the SOA platform is also fitting for CAMF as a parent project. We are currently discussing this with the EMO - and we will go over the SOA charter internally - to make a final decision prior the project creation review.
Of course any insights, comments or suggestions are highly welcome.
Regarding the demo, please send me an email to provide you the links and details on how to compile the source-code.
