Drone has a modular API which makes it possible to easily extend and customize the active feature set. Drone sports a modern web administration interface to handle all common tasks and a public logging section. Installation is done by simply dropping a war in your servlet container or running the standalone distribution. Take Drone for a spin to see what it’s all about!
Drone is a third-party API server for the IBM Websphere Portal Server. It hosts RESTful Web Services which clients can use to access your portal and Oracle Internet Directory (OID) services (accessed by LDAP query or proxy). For Clients, the following features are available: * Connection to OID services (directory and proxy) * LDAP query and search * Request and asynchronous call cancellation * Request logging and diagnostic report * Geo-location based caching * Time-range based caching Requirements: * IBM WAS (websphere) or other Servlet Container with servlet 3.0 or later. * RHEL/Fedora Server with Java 7 or higher. * WebSphere Portal Server 5.0 or higher with sufficient admin privileges. * Oracle Internet Directory Server (websphere connector) with OD environment and administration privileges. * SQL Developer Client, SQL Plus Client or equivalent, for the examples. * If you’re new to Drone and Portal, we recommend you start with our Intro to Drone documentation. Integration with Drone: With Drone, you can easily integrate into Drone the same way as you have to Portal. The Portal bridge can be enabled from the Drone menu or by adding a new bridge and pointing the name to the Drone context root and the bridge name to the context path. Configuration: Configuration is done by editing a ini file. A sample configuration can be found in the /conf directory. The documentation explains in detail how configuration should be done. You can add the following sections: * Your own security realm for user accounts * Details for your portal * Details for your directory * Time-based caching * Geolocation based caching * Dynamic proxy vs. transparent proxies * Portlet proxy (add to security realm in Drone) A sample configuration file is provided with Drone. You can edit the file to suit your needs. Module Framework: Drone is built on top of the widely used and well-documented OSGi framework, which makes it easy to add/remove/change modules in Drone. You can add a new “portal” module if you’re using the Portal Bridge, or a “directory” module if you’re using the Directory Bridge. When you add a new module (and it is not the firewall module), it will appear in the Drone menu under “Modules”. Administration: Administration in Drone is simple 2f7fe94e24

Drone was designed as an application for the IoT. IoT has a big potential but unfortunately most of the developers do not have experience in that field. Drone can help with the needed development experience. Drone gives you the best way to build applications for the IoT. What kind of things can I do with Drone? As Drone is completely modular, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Drone provides a web management interface for all common tasks. You can manage all application users, services, deployment, logins, updates, etc. Information on what can be done in Drone can be found on the website. Application Architecture: Drone has been build as a modular REST-API which works like a collection of modules. Within the API we have seen the following modules: User Management User management has a web-based user administration with a specific GUI for setup and configuration for applications. Information provided by the service include the list of all users, their status, their roles, the user roles, the API key for user management, etc. Each user can be set up to his/her liking. You can configure users to be able to login and even change the password. You can also determine the role that a user plays in a specific process. A user can login via its email or, if a user already exists, a user’s username and password. Applications can be set up to use one or more users as a mechanism for authorization. It is not mandatory for applications to use users to determine login rights. Applications can set users as the default user that a client will authenticate with when logging in. A user can be added or removed dynamically from an existing application. Application Management Application management provides an easy way for an application owner to manage the application. Application management has a gui that can be used to configure all application features, e.g., the app title, description, and url. Managed applications can also be set up to send alerts to application owners on new updates or new versions of an application. Application owners can remotely deploy the apps to Drone via a web browser interface. The deployment process includes a click-through wizard to help with the setup. Each application can be set up to have a specific url (e.g., Drone takes care of keeping this URL up to date so that it never changes as long as the application is deployed.
