Integration of Nutshell and Amazon EC2

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2. is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. Amazon EC2 lets you launch new virtual servers with a click of a button, and pay only for the capacity that you use. [1]

Nutshell is a provider of hosted development environments for teams. It provides an easy to use management conspe that allows developers to keep track of their projects, set up automated builds, and run their code on a variety of environments. [2]

Integration of Nutshell and Amazon EC2

In this section I will demonstrate how Nutshell can benefit from Amazon EC2 by showing an example of how to use AWS as a continuous integration server for Nutshell.

I will start by creating an AWS account. Then I will create an instance in Nutshell and install Ruby on Rails on it. Figure 1 explains the process. Note that the user has to sign up on both AWS and Nutshell to use them together.

Figure 1. A flowchart for installing Ruby on Rails on an instance using Nutshell [4]

Afterwards, I will create a build script that runs rake test command to run all tests. Rake is a software that supports different tasks such as compiling, testing, and packaging. This way I can easily set up automated builds. Figure 2 illustrates the process. [3]

Benefits of Integration of Nutshell and Amazon EC2

As an illustration of how this integration might be useful, let's say I wrote a program that does not work correctly on my local machine but works well on the Amazon EC2 instance. If I had some tests written for the program, I could run them on the Amazon EC2 instance and then determine whether or not the program was working correctly on the instance. If there were no tests written for the program, I could still run the program on the Amazon EC2 instance and determine whether or not there were any bugs in it by using unit tests. Running the program on the Amazon EC2 instance would help me catch errors that I might have missed if I were running it locally only. It might also help me define what my program should do and what it should not do before I write tests for it. This way it would save me time when implementing my tests because I would have already thought about what my program should do and what it should not do beforehand. I could then write my test cases based on my thoughts about my program.

In conclusion, Nutshell can benefit from using Amazon EC2 as a continuous integration server because it will allow users to define what their programs should do and what they should not do before writing tests for them, which will ultimately save them time when implementing their tests because they would have already thought about what their program should do and what it should not do beforehand.
