We develop and test our prototypes over a service platform hosted in our campus. The address of our application server deployed on the platform is http://soc.univ-lyon1.fr:8080/.
We also have prototypes as standalone applications. we provide jar files for those who wish to experiment with them, at our demo page.
The (draft, in French) specification of our platform is available here. It is password-protected, please contact us to access the document.
You should develop the prototype with the Glassfish application server. The application should be packaged as a WAR file.
