API dependencies:

The new UI will only consume NB API's and some external components like Jolokia for JMX parts which is not exposed directly under the NBAPI used for Diagnostics of the controller directly in the Application.


Provide a replacement or more interactive UI application for consumers / users of the controller that can be totally decouple from anything else then a web-server.

Might affect:

  • Existing UI may be deprecated or put outside the controller.
  • controller itself could become totally standalone from any UI parts and just exposing the different API's needed to be consumed by any UI / UX application like dlux or any other alike.
