What is the CAST Dashboard Package?
The CAST Dashboard Package comprises the following CAST dashboards, packaged as WAR files:
|CAST Health Engineering|
|CAST RESTAPI standalone|
Each WAR file can be deployed into an existing CAST AIP installation, replacing the existing WAR (note that we recommend a "side-by-side" deployment approach - see Installation and deployment process).
Why standalone WAR files?
Releasing dashboard WAR files outside of the CAST AIP release cycle allows CAST to respond more quickly to feature requests and bug fixes which would ordinarily need to wait until a CAST AIP maintenance release or a new minor/major release.
What is released in a standalone WAR file?
Each WAR file released with the package is based on a specific release of CAST AIP, then feature requests and bug fixes are added. All changes that are integrated into the standalone WARs do not require any update to the CAST AIP schemas, therefore deployment is relatively simple - deploy the new WARs alongside the existing WAR, update any configuration files in the new deployment for your own environment and then remove the existing corresponding WAR - see Installation and deployment process.
