OCCI-CDMI Client :: Pollux
===========================

The OCCI-CDMI Client aims to offer a tool for testing 
an OCCI Server in association with a CDMI Client for 
providing infrastructure services through creating of 
resources such as Networks, Storages and Virtual Machines.
 
All components of this client are developed in Java 1.6
with Spring MVC to offer an extensible and flexible tool. 
This client, code-named "Pollux", can be accessed via Web
or can be reused separatelly from stand alone applications
as maven artifacts.

MAIN COMPONENTS
===============
The client is composed mainly by three components: OCCI Artifact, 
CDMI Artifact and Web Artifact. These components can be used inside 
OSGi platforms or as libraries independently each other.
