CQCon 2013: Automated self-testing of live CQ instances

I'm looking forward to my talk on automated self-testing and health check of live Adobe CQ instances (now part of Adobe Experience Manager) at CQCON 2013 in Basel. A number of Apache Sling and CQ5 developers have been working on various tools to check the health of a live CQ or Sling instance, and we seem to be converging on a set of simple tools that can be very helpful for system administrators and developers.

The focus of my talk is presenting the SLING-2822 prototype that I've been working on recently that allows for creating health check tests for Sling systems in an extensible way. Out of the box, you can configure rules to check MBean attribute values, OSGi bundles states, disabling of Sling default accounts or any rule that can be checked by executing a script in a language that Sling supports. Extension points allow for registering additional rule types as OSGi services.

This prototype is not a finished tool. The goal is to start a concrete discussion about what's actually needed in terms of health checks. This can be seen from various angles: checking that the CQ security checklist has been applied, checking that the system is still in good shape after upgrading some OSGi bundles, checking that performance counters are within acceptable limits, etc.

With this in mind, I hope that you will attend CQCON 2013 and join in the open discussion to provide feedback on which direction such tools should take. I'll make sure to mention the idea of using server-side JUnit scripts for auto-testing production instances, as reactions to that idea have been varying from sheer enthusiasm to cries of horror. Just slightly exaggerating; but it looks like opinions may vary on which tools to use where.

I'll also present related tools like Joerg Hoh's cq5-healthcheck tool and Davide Gianella's sanity check tool. We haven't yet decided if and how much we should merge all those ideas into a common tool, so getting feedback from you and the rest of the CQCON audience on that will be invaluable.

        It is always good to check the details of the experiments using a prototype of the subject. And it is always useful to study the effects of the new products, using prototypes. Thank you for sharing more about the SLING.

                  The middle name is out of the question for me because I cannot separate Clifford from the big red dog. But, when I saw Elam included in Laura's list of raindrop names, I started to wonder if it would really be that bad. Does it feel like the more popular names like Eli, Elias, Elijah...

                                On the consumer side, the U.S. market for electric bikes in 2011 is predicted at 350,000 units and growing to 500,000 in 2012. With an average price of over $600, that makes the market over $200 million in 2011. These numbers don't include trikes, scooters or other LEVs. On the B2B side, we have identified over 10 quadrants that are each at least $200 million dollar markets. Initially we will focus locally on Malls, Film Studios, Academic & Corporate Campuses and Ports

What kind of customization do you allow via bootstrap? I saw that you have a compiled Bootstrap CSS file installed. Ever thought of having LESS files and build-in a custom build script?
