System requirements

The current eagle-i network deployment is a reference configuration. In this deployment, eagle-i nodes are VMs with the following configuration:

  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Disk: 100 GB
  • CPU: 2 core
  • Operating system: Fedora 14
  • Java environment: Sun JDK v. 1.6.0_27, 64 bit
  • Servlet container: Tomcat 6 or 7
  • RDBMS: MySQL 5.1 (used for logging search usage)
  • Mail server: postfix (used to enable resource owner contact feature in Search pages)

In addition, the eagle-i network uses a central server for hosting the central search application and a few other central services. The configuration of the central server is similar to that of the institutional servers.

Set up a development environment

The eagle-i source code is a multi-module maven project (see code organization). Our code is IDE-agnostic, though we've had a good experience using eclipse with the m2eclipse plugin (standard with the latest version of eclipse):

  • After installing m2eclipse, open the eclipse subversion perspective and select "check out as maven project" at the trunk level.
  • This will create an eclipse project per maven module
  • eagle-i-base contains the root POM. mvn install at this level builds the entire tree.

Alternately, here are some notes on setting up eclipse for GWT debugging from one of our team members.
