Greetings BlackTie fans,
We just wanted to let you know one of the projects main focus at the moment is to work on ease of use and managements. To that end we have reworked our Deploying BlackTie article over on the wiki with a challenge of sorts :D
The idea is that given a suitable baseline machine (say Fedora or Windows) and a few pre-requisites (Java, Maven and Ant, nothing too adventurous) then it should be possible to get BlackTie installed and running in only two minutes. When we say running, we mean having ran all the example programs too!
How is this possible you might ask? Have we removed most of the examples? No! What we have done is provided a small script that will automatically run all of the samples that we ship! Call it an aide memoire of sorts so you don't need to recall and type all of the build commands from the off.
Hope it is of help to you all!
