The SA3 Mission
The goal of the activity is to manage the process of building
deployable and documented middleware distributions.
This starts by integrating middleware packages from a variety
of sources, extends to the configuration management and certification
and testing. The testing ensures that released software is as
reliable, robust, scalable and as usable as possible.
To achieve its goal, SA3 operates a large distributed testbed.
SA3 works closely with the TCG on selecting new candidate packages
for integration into the software stack.
The connection with the SA1 pre-production, operation and deployment
groups is essential to ensure that the distribution and configuration
tools meet their requirements.
SA3 coordinates the work towards interoperation with other grid
infrastructures based on different middleware.
SA3 partners work actively on increasing the number of platforms
on which EGEE's middleware is usable.
In close collaboration with SA1 and NA4, some members of SA3,
who have more of a developer's profile, work on troubleshooting
complex problems and providing "glue" components.
