Dashboard architecture change in 2.x

Release 2.0.0-beta1 is the first release of the CAST Dashboards that will use Spring Boot technology. In the most basic terms, this means that it is now possible to deploy the CAST Dashboards without the need for a standalone web application server such as Apache Tomcat - the web application server is instead embedded within the delivered dashboard. This will simplify and speed up the deployment of the CAST Dashboards. As a result of this change:

 

The table below provides a comparison of the ZIP and WAR file deployment options:


ZIP

WAR

Start-up time

Faster

Slower

Configuration

Lightweight - does not require Apache Tomcat (it is embedded in the ZIP).

Apache Tomcat must be installed and configured prior to deploying the dashboard.

Resources

1 port (8080 by default) = 1 Server Process = 1 ED Dashboard + 1 HD Dashboard.

1 port = 1 Server Process = N x (ED Dashboard +  HD Dashboard).

Context

Additional Web Server quickly installed on a separate host for a single pair of ED/HD.

Server for multiple ED/HD dashboards.

Limitations

No Windows Service, no shutdown command line, SAML authentication not supported currently.

Currently SAML authentication is not supported in 2.x WAR files (supported in 1.x WAR files).
