Virgo

From Eclipsepedia

Jump to: navigation, search



The Virgo project, a sub-project of EclipseRT, is now contributed to Eclipse except for some samples and system verification tests.

If you want a thumb-nail sketch of Virgo, flip through this EclipseCon presentation.

These wiki pages are aimed at committers, contributors, and users who want a deeper understanding of Virgo. Virgo Home has more basic information for users.

Take Virgo for a spin

If you want to take the Virgo web server for a spin, first build it (see Build for more options).

>git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/virgo/org.eclipse.virgo.web-server.git 
>cd org.eclipse.virgo.web-server
>git submodule update --init
>cd build-web-server
>ant clean jar package smoke-test

The build should report "BUILD SUCCESSFUL" at the end.

Then start Virgo.

>cd target/package-expanded/virgo-web-server-<version>
>bin/startup.sh

Virgo should issue event log messages like this:

You can then log in to the Virgo admin console (user "admin", password "springsource"). You should see the welcome panel of the admin console:
admin console welcome panel

You can then examine the features of the admin console. For example, you can explore the artifacts currently installed by clicking on the Artifacts pane and expanding some of the sections marked with '+' signs:

If you want to try deploying a bundle, drop it into the pickup directory:

org.eclipse.virgo.web-server/build-web-server/target/package-expanded/virgo-web-server-<version>/pickup

For example, if you download the trivial test application helloweb.war and drop it into the pickup directory, the following event log messages are displayed:

[2010-06-04 11:25:49.528] fs-watcher                   <DE0000I> Installing bundle 'helloweb' version '0.0.0'.

and you can then invoke the application or inspect it in the admin console:
