The AeroGear team is happy to announce the first community release of the AeroGear Push Server downloadable OpenShift cartridge. This cartridge handles the necessary installation and configuration for getting both the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server and the AeroGear SimplePush Server deployed to OpenShift in minutes. In particular, the cartridge provides:

 

  • the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server deployed to JBoss Application Server 7 on OpenShift
  • the AeroGear SimplePush Server embedded within the same JBoss Application Server 7 instance
  • MySQL datasources for persistence for both the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server and the AeroGear SimplePush Server

 

Getting started on OpenShift

 

Want to try out the downloadable cartridge? It's easy! Just follow these two simple steps:

 

  1. Create an OpenShift account and follow the instructions in the Getting Started guide to install the OpenShift command line tools.
  2. Create your AeroGear Push Server OpenShift application using the following command (notice that this command also adds the MySQL OpenShift cartridge to your application):
rhc app create <APP> https://cartreflect-claytondev.rhcloud.com/reflect?github=aerogear/openshift-origin-cartridge-aerogear-push mysql-5.1

 

That's it! Now:

 

  • You can access the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server Administration Console via the following URL. Temporarily, there is an "admin:123" user. You will need to change this password when you first log in. Check out the Administration Console user guide for more information about the console.

  • The AeroGear UnifiedPush Server and the AeroGear SimplePush Server persist all data to the MySQL database that's been added to your application's gear.
