Automating deployment and activation of virtual images

Virtualization offers advantages that include server consolidation, isolation, rapid provisioning, and improved change management processes. Since virtualization breaks the hardware dependency and isolates virtual machines from details about the physical servers on which they are hosted, virtual images can be moved from one hosting platform to another. They can also be cloned to create more virtual machines, as desired. One of the challenges with cloning virtual images is handling operating system, network, and application specific customization. This article provides a sample framework for automating virtual image activation on new host platforms. This article, along with a previous article on Using virtual image templates to deploy WebSphere Application Server, demonstrates an automated approach for quickly and easily provisioning new WebSphere Application Server environments. The sample deployment and activation code included with this article is independent of WebSphere Application Server and can be used in conjunction with other software inside a virtual image. The specific example provided here is for WebSphere Application Server V6 in VMware or XEN virtual images, using SUSE V10 as the guest operating system. The activation techniques described in this article can be used in conjunction with IBM Tivoli® Provisioning Manager as described in Using Tivoli Provisioning Manager to deploy composite virtual appliances.

galleria - Google Code

by 3 others (via)
Galleria is a javascript image gallery written in jQuery. It loads the images one by one from an unordered list and displays thumbnails when each image is loaded. It will create thumbnails for you if you choose so, scaled or unscaled, centered and cropped inside a fixed thumbnail box defined by CSS. The core of Galleria lies in it's smart preloading behaviour, snappiness and the fresh absence of obtrusive design elements. Use it as a foundation for your custom styled image gallery.

SwfIR : En attendant les CSS3 ? - Babylon-Design - Tutoriaux WebDesign : Adobe Photoshop, XHTML/CSS, Accessibilité

by 1 other (via)
SwfIR n'est pas une marque de produits nettoyant révolutionnaire mais une methode pour appliquer des styles originaux à vos images en passant par un JavaScript et un peu de Flash. Vous connaissiez sIFR, découvrez SwfIR… SwfIR est un script non intrusif, c'est-à-dire qu'outre le fait que vous devez linker un fichier JavaScript à votre page, vous n'avez pas besoin de modifier le code XHTML de votre page. Ce script permet à vos images d'appliquer des styles inexistants en CSS2 : ombres portées, bordures arrondies, coins arrondis, rotation. Le principe est que SwfIR va remplacer les images que vous aurez spécifiées par un Flash qui intégrera ces images pour leur appliquer ces styles.
