RE: [alf-dev] Availability of POC infrastructure pieces?

Title: Re: [alf-dev] Availability of POC infrastructure pieces?
I've been continuing along the path of determining which infrastructure bits are required to begin ALF work.  My starting point was to attempt to compile the ALF Event manager.  Here are the pieces that I installed in order to accomplish this:
0. Using Eclipse 3.1.1 on Windows.
1. Obtained the ALF-EM code (cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/home/technology checkout org.eclipse.alf/eventmgr)
2.  Downloaded and installed the following:
apache_2.0.55-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi  The windows installer for Apache
jdk-1_5_0_06-windows-i586-p.exe       JDK 1.5.0 R6 for Windows
jwsdp-2_0-windows-i586.exe               The Java Web Services Developer's kit from Sun
apache-tomcat-5.5.15.zip                   Apache Tomcat servlet container (not needed to compile, but needed to run the EM)
axis-bin-1_3.zip                                 The Apache Axis Web services kit
3. Set up an Eclipse project called AlfuRev (a not-so-clever smashing together of 'AccuRev and ALF' that contains the source downloaded in step one.  Note, I had to manually create the org/eclipse/alf/eventManager directory hierarchy and place the downloaded code in the 'eventManager' directory in order to satisfy the Java compiler.  Minor point.
4. Add several external libraries (obtained by downloading the bits listed above in step 2) to the Eclipse project.  Specifically added:
JRE System Library (jdk1.5.0_06)
servlet-api.jar (from apache-tomcat-5.5.15\common\lib)
saaj-api.jar (from jwsdp-2.0\saaj\lib)
activation.jar (from jwsdp-2.0\jwsdp-shared\lib)
axis.jar (from axis-1_3\lib)
log4j-1.2.8.jar (from axis-1_3\lib)
jaxrpc.jar (from axis-1_3\lib)
The code successfully compiled after this.
I would still appreciate guidance on the other infrastructure bits that are required, including:
- BPEL Engine
- WDSL and webservices tools
- UDDI implementation for discovery.
My goal is to take what I've learned and create an ALF HOW-TO, or a 'Getting Started with ALF' that, with agreement from the community, might utimately get posted on the ALF web page.  Theory being that if we make it easy to get started, we will better our chances of ALF reaching a critical mass and really taking off.

Due to various licensing issues, the VMware image of the ALF POC will only be available to the direct POC participants.  We plan to build a "working stub" sample following the design of the POC that anyone can download.  I will start work on documenting the platform more formerly this week

I would propose that we send Serena a USB or Firewire external hard drives.
They cost < $150 and have plenty of room.

Team ALF:
There was some discussion in late January about the POC being available as a VMWare image.  I have a few questions.
1. Where can that image be found, and has it been trimmed down from 20G?  What specific version of VMWare is required in order to use it?
2.  Is there a definitive list of infrastructure pieces (software product names, versions, URLs for download)?
AccuRev is working on our ALF strategy, and we'd like to secure the proper bits.  I think there is (probably) a minimal set of opensource products that one needs to get started:
- Apache Tomcat
- A BPEL engine (Oracle's is being used I believe)
- a WSDL tool
- a UDDI implementation
- The ALF Event manager servlet code (have this already).
Note, I am specifically excluding the partner products from the minimal set.
If someone could either post this list to alf-dev, or point me privately towards an existing post or location, that would be greatly appreciated.
