Vocabulary Service 3.0 Test Setup


This page describes the setup of our testing instance of the Spatial Information Services Stack Vocabulary Service (SISSVoc) v 3.0.It serves the following purposes:
  • Uploading/editing vocabularies on the Sesame triplestore for testing.
  • Testing new development versions of the Elda.
After passing the acceptance tests, vocabularies and new vocabulary service versions can be migrated to the production server.

Elda client http://auscope-services-test.arrc.csiro.au/sissvoc/
Sesame Workbench http://auscope-services-test.arrc.csiro.au/openrdf-workbench/
Sesame Server http://auscope-services-test.arrc.csiro.au/openrdf-sesame/

Server setup

Deploy Sesame Server and Workbench

We are using Sesame server 2.6.X from http://www.openrdf.org/ as backend for our Vocabulary Service. This is a guide to install Sesame.

Deploy Elda

Copy Sesame triplestore database

  • Log into auscope-services-test:
  • If the data does not exist:
    • Create DATA directory: sudo mkdir /var/lib/tomcat6/data/openrdf-sesame/repositories
    • Manually populate the repos
  • Alternatively:
    • Recreate all the data from existing data hosts via importing the RDF.

Setup Tomcat and Apache

  • On auscope-services-test as root:
    • chmod -R tomcat6.tomcat6 /var/lib/tomcat6/data/openrdf-sesame/repositories/
    • In /etc/default/tomcat6 added in JAVA_OPTS:
      • -Dinfo.aduna.platform.appdata.basedir=/var/lib/tomcat6/data
    • In /etc/tomcat6/server.xml add in two Connector tags:
      • attribute address=""
    • In /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default add in the VirtualHost section:
      • ProxyPass /openrdf-workbench ajp://localhost:8009/openrdf-workbench
        ProxyPassReverse /openrdf-workbench ajp://localhost:8009/openrdf-workbench
        ProxyPass /openrdf-sesame ajp://localhost:8009/openrdf-sesame
        ProxyPassReverse /openrdf-sesame ajp://localhost:8009/openrdf-sesame
      • <Location /openrdf-workbench>
        #User Authentication Stuff - we use LDAP but protect it how you like.
      • # Regular expression to match everything that is a sub folder ignoring query string
        # More info - http://www.openrdf.org/doc/sesame2/system/ch08.html#d0e179
        <LocationMatch /openrdf-sesame/repositories/([^\?]*)+?/>
                # Authentication
                # Allow on HTTP GET
                <LimitExcept GET>
                    require ldap-group cn=testGroup,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=org,dc=au
    • a2enmod authnz_ldap
    • sudo service apache2 restart
    • sudo service tomcat6 restart
