Camano 3.1

Release Notes


Camano 3.1 is primarily a bug-fix release. It also marks the beginning of ORCA operations in beta. Capabilities previously demonstrated are now available to external users on the limited set of resources available to ORCA.

  • Starting with this release we recommend using Tomcat 7 instead of Tomcat 5.5 with ORCA. This fixes a number of transient classpath problems experienced in the past.
  • The compute ontology has been updated and extended
  • Network embedding code has been extended and tested with a regression test suite (see below)
  • GENI Authorization is turned on by default
  • RSpec v2 request conversion has been extended and documented.
  • ORCA now generates proper RSpec v2 manifests for use by omni and Gush.


  • Use stock Tomcat 7 instead of Tomcat 5.5
  • There are minor changes to configuration files for SM actor and XMLRPC controller within it due to GENI authorization being turned on by default.
  • ORCA native API has changed and the python scripts previously used to exercise it have been updated (including the use of certificates for authorization)
  • Due to the ontology changes, your site rdf file may require an update
