Cloud Application Management for Platforms V1.1 and #CAMP Test Assertions V1.1 Committee Specifications published

OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of two new Committee Specifications by the members of the OASIS Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) TC:

Cloud Application Management for Platforms Version 1.1
Committee Specification 01
09 November 2014

Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) Test Assertions Version 1.1
Committee Specification 01
09 November 2014

Overview:

"Cloud Application Management for Platforms Version 1.1" defines the artifacts and APIs that need to be offered by a Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud to manage the building, running, administration, monitoring and patching of applications in the cloud. Its purpose is to enable interoperability among self-service interfaces to PaaS clouds by defining artifacts and formats that can be used with any conforming cloud and enable independent vendors to create tools and services that interact with any conforming cloud using the defined interfaces. Cloud vendors can use these interfaces to develop new PaaS offerings that will interact with independently developed tools and components.

"Cloud Application Management for Platforms (CAMP) Test Assertions Version 1.1" defines testable or measurable expressions related to normative statements in the specification for evaluating if an implementation conforms to it. These Test Assertions are intended to be used for defining precisely the conditions required by a CAMP implementation in order to conform. They support the testing activity by acting as a bridge between the normative statements in the specification and the executable test cases that are parts of a conformance test suite.

Description of the TC:

The OASIS CAMP TC advances an interoperable protocol that cloud implementers can use to package and deploy their applications. CAMP defines interfaces for self-service provisioning, monitoring, and control. Based on REST, CAMP is expected to foster an ecosystem of common tools, plugins, libraries and frameworks, which will allow vendors to offer greater value-add.

Common CAMP use cases include:

- moving on-premise applications to the cloud (private or public)
- redeploying applications across cloud platforms from multiple vendors
