ISA² interoperability test bed software v1.2.0 1.2.0

1 year ago

Version 1.2.0 of the ISA² interoperability test bed software, based on the GITB CWA specifications, is now released. This version focuses on correcting issues impacting the platform's robustness and introducing improvements both for administrators, to better manage their configured domains and specifications, as well as users to improve their test reporting capabilities. The key improvement area targeted is the management of new test suite versions.

This new version is online in the ISA² interoperability test bed service but is also available for you to setup as a standalone instance. If a standalone instance best matches your needs, the following supporting resources are available:

  • The introduction, installation and usage of the test bed, provided in the test bed's introductory handbook.
  • The source code of the test bed software.
  • The EUPL-based licence attached to the direct use of the source code.

Update instructions

This section applies to you if you are running your own test bed instance and want to update to version 1.2.0. The following steps are to be executed on the command line of the server running the test bed components.

Step 1 - Get the new test bed components

docker pull isaitb/gitb-ui:1.2.0
docker pull isaitb/gitb-srv:1.2.0

Step 2 - Shut down your current test bed components

docker stop gitb-ui gitb-srv
docker rm gitb-ui gitb-srv

Step 3 - Start the new test bed components

Remember to replace [PUBLIC_SERVER_ADDRESS] with the address corresponding to your instance.

docker run --name gitb-srv --net=gitb-net -p 8080-8380:8080-8380
   -e gitb.messaging.server-ip-address=[PUBLIC_SERVER_ADDRESS]
   -e gitb.messaging.callbackURL=http://[PUBLIC_SERVER_ADDRESS]:8080/itbsrv/MessagingClient
   -d --restart=unless-stopped isaitb/gitb-srv:1.2.0

docker run --name gitb-ui --net=gitb-net -p 9000:9000 -p 9090:9090 --volumes-from gitb-repo
   -d --restart=unless-stopped isaitb/gitb-ui:1.2.0

Your test bed instance is now successfully updated to the version 1.2.0.
