The WiseUI is a GWT based web client for the Testbed Runtime. The project is carried out as a joint venture formed by R.A. Computer Technology Institute (RACTI, University of Patras) and the Institute of Telematics (ITM, University of Lübeck).

The WiseUI project is related to the research projects WISEBED and SmartSantander.

What do I need?

  • Git
  • JDK >= 1.6
  • Maven 3.0

All library dependencies are downloaded by Maven.

Build and Start the WiseUI

On the command-line go to the WiseUI directory. Perform a clean build on the project to make sure, that all Maven artifacts are installed in your local Maven repository ~/.m2/repository. If you are running Maven for the first time, it will take some time as Maven downloads all project dependencies from the internet.

$ cd wiseui
$ mvn clean install

In the current configuration all tests should be configured as ignored, but if want to be certain you can skip the tests by appending -DskipTests to your Maven command:

$ mvn clean install -DskipTests    

To start the WiseUI in "hosted mode" change to the client directory (where the actual web application resides) and use the GWT Maven plugin goal gwt:run:

$ cd wiseui/client
$ mvn gwt:run

For debug mode use:

$ mvn gwt:debug    

Configure Hibernate

If you want to configure you own database connection instead of the default HSQL, you can do this by declaring the following properties in your local Maven settings file ~/.m2/settings.xml:


Loading Initial Testbed Configurations

If you want to have an initial set of testbed configurations, you can load this dump into your local e.g. MySQL database.

$ mysql -u dbuser -p dbpass somedb < wiseui/persistence/src/main/sql/initial_testbed_configs.sql   

This will create a table called testbed_config in the database somedb containing the intial WISEBED testbed configurations.

Deploy to a Tomcat

Your ~/.m2/settings.xml should include a server configuration:


This requires a user tomcat with the role manager in your Tomcat installation for the configure URL ${tomcat.manager.url} (click here for more). Furthermore, it is important that you use the id tomcat6 for the server, because this is how it is referenced in the WiseUI master POM.

You can deploy the WiseUI web application with the Tomcat Maven plugin:

$ pwd
> [...]/wiseui
$ cd client
$ mvn tomcat:deploy

If you already have the web application running, you have to use redeploy:

$ mvn tomcat:redeploy

For more information about the Tomcat Maven plugin visit the plugin website.
