OmiLab Integrated Virtual Environment
Olive is a Microservice Framework made available by OMiLAB.
The main idea behind is that the functionality of the system is composed by different (web-)services, running in their own processes and communicating with each other using standard network protocols. This approach brings the advantage of absolute technology independence. The only requirement for services is that they can communicate in HTTP using standardized JSON messages (OMiLAB Generic Interface).
More informations about the concepts behind the Olive Framework can be found in the Springer book: "OMiLAB: An Open Collaborative Environment for Modeling Method Engineering".
All the components of the Olive platform are released as individual .war files. In order to deploy them, simply download every war file and copy in the webapp folder of your Tomcat 9 application server. By default every component is configured to work with localhost adresses and recognize the other components deployed in the same application server.
Please be aware that every component require its own database and custom configuration, both detailed in the Documentation section of the component. Usually the schema for the DB creation and the istructions and material for the custom configuration are available inside the INSTALL folder of every component.
Java 11 is required in order to correctly execute the Olive framework.
Have a look at the Installation Manual for more details on the installation process.
Have a look at the Service Development Manual in order to learn how to create your own service.
