Skyway Overview
Skyway is used by developers to obtain a desired complex development platform
to build franchise applications. Skyway users are provided Templates, each of
which defines a Stack that can be easily provisioned to run an application. You
can configure Templates before provisioning, and also capture changes made in
the Stack’s Components.
Skyway runs on each Broker. It uses the Broker’s definitions of Stacks, Templates,
and users.
About Templates
A Template is a Silver Fabric Stack which can be configured and provisioned from
Skyway.
Any Stack can be designated as a template in the Silver Fabric Administration
Tool.
TIBCO Silver® Fabric Skyway User’s Guide
|5
The Skyway User Interface
The Skyway UI is a web-based interface you use to manage Templates and Stacks.
To access Skyway, you must have HTTP network access to the Broker from any
supported browser that supports JavaScript. Make sure that JavaScript is enabled
in the browser.
To open Skyway, go to http://hostname:port/skyway (where hostname is the
address of the Broker, and port is the port on which it is listening) in your browser;
you will be prompted for a username and password.
Skyway Users
To log in to Skyway, you must have an username and password. Skyway uses the
same users as the Silver Fabric Broker. For more information on adding or
managing users, or using an external LDAP server, see Authentication on
page 200 of the Silver Fabric Cloud Administration Guide.
Skyway also uses role and account permissions to determine what Templates and
Stacks are available. If you're using Skyway with a non-cloud account, this means
you can only see Templates belonging to your account or that have been marked
as "global" Templates. Stacks provisioned in Skyway are only available to that
user within Skyway, but are accessible from within Silver Fabric by other users in
the same account and the cloud account.
TIBCO Silver® Fabric Skyway User’s Guide

|
The Skyway Home Page
The Skyway home page displays Templates available for you to provision.
Provisioning a Template instructs the Broker to copy each of the Template’s
Components, create a copy of the Template itself that is made up of the copied
Components rather than the originals, modify the copied Stack and Components
in accordance with the configuration you set up in Skyway, publish the
Components and the Stack, and start the Stack. Silver Fabric then allocates and
runs the new Components as indicated in the new Stack.
Figure 1 The Skyway Home Page
Each Template available to you is shown, along with its technology type and a
short description.
Click any of the Templates to view more details or provision the Template.
From the home page, you can also click My Stacks to go to the My Stacks page.
There is also a search tool. Enter a search string to show a list of Templates or
Stacks containing the string in their title.
TIBCO Silver® Fabric Skyway User’s Guide
|7
Template Pages
When you click on a Template on the home page, you go to that Template’s page.
Figure 2 A Template Page
The Template page shows information about a Template, and enables you to
configure or provision it. The page displays the Template’s description, when it
was last updated, and contact information for its administrator.
The page also shows configuration information for the Template. This includes
the names of each Component that will be in the provisioned Stack, along with
their description, the number of Engine instances that will be allocated for that
Component, and other configuration information, such as the HTTP routing
prefix.
Configuring a Template
Templates contain a configuration specified by the cloud administrator when they
were created. This includes a Stack name, description, instance counts for each
Component, and other configuration options.
You can use these default settings, or make changes to the Template for the Stack
you provision.
To change a Template’s configuration:
1. Click the Edit link next to the Configuration heading.
TIBCO Silver® Fabric Skyway User’s Guide

|
The Configuration dialog box appears.
Figure 3 Template Configuration
2. Enter any configuration changes to the Template. For example, you could
change the number of instances required, or the name of the Stack.
3. Click Apply.
Provisioning a Template
To provision a Stack, click Proceed With Provisioning.
As the Stack is in the process of provisioning, an Abort button appears on the My
Stacks page. Click Abort to cancel provisioning the Stack.
TIBCO Silver® Fabric Skyway User’s Guide
|9
The My Stacks Page
The My Stacks page displays all of your running or stopped Stacks.
Figure 4 The My Stacks Page
From the My Stacks page, you can:
•
Click on a Stack to go to its Stack Details page.
•
Click Start to start a stopped Stack.
•
Click Stop to stop a running Stack.
•
Click Delete to delete a stopped Stack.
•
Click Abort to stop provisioning a Stack.
Importing a Stack
From the My Stacks page, you can import a Stack that you previously exported.
(For information on exporting a Stack, see Exporting a Stack, page 12.)
To import a Stack:
1. Go to the My Stacks page.
2. Click Import Stack.
3. Click Browse and select the exported Stack file.
4. If you want to start the Stack when it is imported, select Import and Start
Stack.
5. Click Import Stack.
An exported Stack contains the Stack and its Components, but not Schedules,
Enablers, Component Types, or other Grid Libraries on which the Components or
their Enablers may depend. Importing a Stack into another Skyway instance that
lacks those dependencies may cause issues. Ensure that any dependencies have
already been installed when moving exported Stacks.

You can edit a stopped Stack, for example, to change the number of instances used
by a Component, or change a configuration item such as a port number.
To edit a Stack:
1. Go to the Stack Details page for the Stack.
2. Ensure that the Stack is stopped.
3. Click Edit.
4. Make any changes in the configuration dialog box.
5. Click Apply.

Stack Components
In the middle of the Stack Details page, a list of the Stack’s Components is shown.
Figure 6 A Stack’s Components
Click on any of the Components to expand the Component view. This will display
more details on the Component, its current state, and performance of the host
running it.
Viewing Stack Events and Logs
A list of current Stack events is shown on the Stack Details page. This shows
recent Stack and Component events returned from the logs of Engines running
the Stack’s Components.
Figure 7 A Stack’s Events
The following events are shown:
•
Stacks Events: Stack Started, Stack Running, Stack Stopped
•
Component Events: Activation Failed, Capture Failed, Enabler Crashed,
Deactivation Failed, Instance Count Updated
When an event name is red, click on it to see more details.
To view more detailed logs from Engines running Components, click Stack Logs.

Exporting a Stack
Exporting a Stack saves an archive of the Stack on your local file system, which
you can later import.
To export a Stack:
1. Go to the Stack Details page for the Stack.
2. Click Export.
Capturing a Stack
Capturing a Stack forces any changes made to Engines running the Stack’s
Components to be copied back to the Silver Fabric Broker (and redeployed, so
that the changes will become canonical for that Broker).
The Stack or Components must have the capture functionality enabled (for details
on capturing, see the Silver Fabric Developer’s Guide).
To capture a Stack:
1. Go to the Stack Details page for the Stack.
2. Click Capture.
You can also capture a Stack when you stop it. After clicking Stop, click Capture
Stack and Stop in the confirmation dialog box.

Skyway Administration
Skyway Templates
Skyway Templates are created by a cloud administrator in the Silver Fabric
Administration Tool. For more information, see Creating Skyway Templates on
page 80 of the Silver Fabric Cloud Administration Guide.
Logging Configuration
Administrators can configure the amount of logging information displayed in
Skyway by editing the
SF_HOME/webapps/skyway/WEB-INF/config/skyway.properties file. You can
edit the properties in this file to change the log level, maximum log file size, and
maximum number of logs to keep.
Skyway Timeout Configuration
As an alternate interface for Silver Fabric functionality, Skyway authenticates and
communicates with, and establishes sessions on, its associated Broker. It uses the
same timeout period as web client connections to the Administration Tool, which
is 60 minutes by default. After this period, Skyway will log out the user and
return them to the login page.
To change this interval, in the Administration Tool, go to Config > Broker >
Security and change the value of Admin Browser Timeout.
