HTTP Deployer

Project Description: Eclipse developers use JDT to build awesome Java applications. They use Mylyn to focus their work. They use PDE to domesticate the power of EclipseRT. And they use command line tools to deploy their bundles and features. This project is proposed to implement tooling that allows for one-click deployment of any existing Eclipse Feature, for example Eclipse Orion, to Amazon’s EC2.

This project as submitted to the Eclipse Foundation has been accepted for Google Summer of Code 2011.

Student: Sebastian Schmidt

Mentor: Holger Staudacher



The HTTP Deployer provides an API that allows to control Eclipse RTP based OSGi Runtimes remotely. This API is currently used by the HTTP Deployer UI Code for the Remote Provisioning operations. It might, however, also be used by third-party applications and is documented at HttpDeployer_API.
