Project Pseudo-Specification


  • Portal should be ergonomic, sober, extensible
  • Use https + basic authentication for simple login
  • 3 kinds of users (anonymous, regular, admin)
  • Integration of iframe (to simple integration of external web page) (see 1rst propotype)
  • History between widget/panel/layout (see 1rst propotype)
  • job submission (use of datepicker, simple timepiker via combo boxes ?,…)
  • Job grids
  • monika/ drawgantt integration
  • oaradmin integration
  • help/documentation integration
  • extensibility (multi-oar, cigri, portal/portlet)
  • processingjs integration (fancy animation, pie chart, plot, bar chart)
  • integration of pie/graph/chart libraries (like
  • user's preferences (need of DB table)

Initial implementation Workplan

Main Milestones

  1. <s>Extjs-3.2.1 version of first prototype with (global layout, iframe, history…)</s>
  2. Job Submission (simple and advance submission)
  3. Display information for one job
  4. Display information for one resource
  5. List of resources
  6. List of jobs
  7. Processing.js integration (for plot, chart, pie chart and other fancy widget and animations…)
  8. oaradmin integration and interactions
  9. Basic authentification support (need some search/test/discussion: interesting page here)
  10. page à la igoogle


How to test poar prototype

  • Use debian_oar_devel appliance built thanks to kameleon. Note: the redir option to have ssh and http access into guest from host
 sudo kvm -m 512 -redir tcp:2222::22 -redir tcp:8080::80 debian_oar_devel.raw
  • Rsync poar directory from host to /var/www/ in the guest
  cd oar_directory/trunk/visualization_interfaces
  rsync -avz --rsh="ssh -l root -p 2222" --delete poar localhost:/var/www
  • Launch browser on poar
  firefox localhost:8080/poar/poar.html

Note: Of course you can put public key to avoid to enter password.

 scp -P 2222 ~/.ssh/ kameleon@localhost:/home/kameleon/.ssh/
 scp -P 2222 ~/.ssh/ root@localhost:/root/.ssh/

How to add //virtual// nodes and ressources on appliance

  • A simple way in running appliance. First add some hostnames in /etc/hosts node1 node2 node3 node4
  • Second add nodes and ressources in oar's DB (2 ressources by node)
  oarnodesetting -h node2 -a
  oarnodesetting -h node2 -a
  oarnodesetting -h node3 -a
  oarnodesetting -h node3 -a
  • One can also use oaradmin command to add ressources

Debuging with firefox

  • Use firebug extension
