RTC: Nirvana, Silverlight, Flex Powered From A Windows Server AppFabric (Velocity) OLAP Cube

The development for this home project has for the most been done on Windows 7. However, following Daniel’s lead I’m going to run the chosen streaming server (My-Channels Nirvana) on Mac OS X – primarily because I’m on a MacBook Pro – the Max is bootcamp’d with Win7, coupled with VMWare.

Having downloaded the latest Nirvana, I installed using the defaults and ran {NIRVANA_HOME}/server/nirvana/Start Nirvana Realm Server which creates a terminal that looks identical to the Windows console version. NIRVANA_HOME}/Administrator/nirvana/Nirvana Enterprise Manager is the other application you need to start so you can manage the default (nirvana) realm. Hence we end up with this:

Coupled of items to remember when installing Nirvana that I’ve run into in the last few months:

  • Nirvana realm, Interfaces, Plugins/BasePath needs to be set to Nirvana directory
  • Allow client connections on interface nhp0 – this is usually set on an install, but I saw it unset once when I did a Windows install

Now if we fire up AppFabric Caching (see previous posting), start out .NET services (see next posting) we should be ready to launch either a Flex or Silverlight RIA, and see the UI update as the underlying Market Risk data changes in the OLAP cube:



The Flex UI looks a lot better at the moment 🙂 – mainly due to time dedicated. Ignore the data that is currently shown, as its all rubbish currently……
