Re: How to add new applications to openStack?


Hi Hitesh and Jay,

Thanks for your comments. I have to rephrase my question; I meant
using the same web server, MQ server, and database servers for my
application, which is not really integration with openStack; it can
communicate with openStack using REST APIs. I just need to learn how
to deploy my application on the same machine running Nova.

My Java project is at the beginning, so I am thinking about re-writing
it in Python if it would make development easier and faster.

What's the Python REST library used by openStack API server? Where is
the API server code?
First, I need to write and test a simple "hello world" REST API in python!

Thanks again.
