Abstract: Vmcaster is a simple tool for managing and updating your published virtual machines image lists. Following the Hepix image list format.
vmcaster was designed with the realisation that users typically create new virtual machines images rarely but update them frequently. Vmcaster attempts to be the first of a new generation of image list publishers the minimise the data entry for updating images, with image lists.
The tasks of updating an image and uploading a fresh signed image is now just two quiet short command line operations away. The aim is to make image and image list updates as painless as possible as these are the most common tasks.
Internally the application uses a simple SQL database, SQLite for storing image lists and multiple back ends managing uploading of images / images lists using a facade pattern. This allows transfer protocol to be derived from the meta data of the image list and a configuration file, updates need much less effort.
