    6363ORCA currently uses a slightly modified version of Tomcat 5.5 [source:/software/tomcat.tar.gz available here]. Off-the-shelf Tomcat or other servlet engines (like Jetty) will not work.

    65 Most of the ORCA code is written in Java, although substrate handlers [parts of code responsible for creating and destroying slivers of different kinds) are implemented as a combination of Ant scripts, Java tasks and bash scripts. ORCA user tools that speak to its GENI and ProtoGENI AM API-compliant controller are written in Python.

    6767The code is organized as a series of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Maven Maven] projects under a common tree and can be compiled and built using only a few steps, assuming software prerequisites are met. At this time a [wiki:orca-binary-release pre-packaged distribution] is also available. A new user can either download the binary WAR file or the download the source release of the code (we strongly recommend using the latest available stable release), compile it, create configuration files and build and deploy the (built or downloaded) WAR file into the Tomcat servlet engine.
