Thanks to Wolfgang Stief and Constantin Gonzalez, I got hold on one of the proceedings of the Linux Kongress and OpenSolaris Developer Conference. In this book, I found amoung other, also very interesting, articles one about LAX by Thomas Groß.
LAX has some very interesiting concepts, but, unfortunately, it doesn't fit my needs. So I decided to take some of the concepts of LAX and build my own sysadmin-automation-framework.
In lack of a good project name, I named it “ReLAX”.
To get startet, here is a small comparison of the concepts of LAX and ReLAX:
cat. This allows http, https, ftp, ftps and file URLs.
That's it for now, stay tuned…
I started documenting the API, so you might want to have a look there..
