Although taking the binaries from our forge is sometimes an option, you may want to choose automated deployment facilities provided in the FIWARE Cloud environment you are using. The following is a description of those facilities in the FI-PPP Testbed (available to FI-PPP partners) and the FIWARE Lab (open to any developer). There are three basic automated deployment mechanisms available:
  • Images. A ready-made Virtual Machine, with the GE deployed and properly configured. This is pretty simple but it does not allow for any customised options and it requires a dedicated Virtual Machine.
  • Deploying a dedicated GE instance in your own virtual infrastructure. There will be images that will allow you to deploy a VM that contains a chef agent. Once such VM is deployed, you can deploy the GE software plus additional software by using automated facilities.
  • Deploying a dedicated GE instance based on blueprint templates for this GE. By integrating or extending a Blueprint Template available for this GE you can define your own Blueprint Template which defines the virtual infrastructure for your applications.
For this particular generic enabler instance the available deployment methods are as follows:

Deploying a dedicated GE instance based on an image

In order to deploy a dedicated instance of this GEi perform the following actions:
  • Access the FIWARE Cloud Portal (http://cloud.lab.fiware.org)
  • Login with your login/password (if you don't have a login/password, please register on http://account.lab.fiware.org)
  • Click on the "Images" option at the left, then "Launch" selecting the row with the name marketplace

In a matter of minutes a ready-to-use VM instance of WMarket will appear in the "Instances" area (see the FIWARE Cloud Portal guide for additional information on VM management using FIWARE Cloud).

At this point, WMarket should be up and running in http://VM_IP:8080/WMarket, replacing VM_IP by the IP of your machine. Note that the service can take a while (up to 15 minutes) to start accepting requests.
