Thanks for your note!  Curious what aspects of lightblue are interesting to you and how you might see using the project to meet your own needs.  We have tried very hard to keep things flexible and are interested in any feedback, positive or negative!

As for real world use of lightblue, we have a deployment in production being used and we continue to shift more of our web services stack from legacy systems to lightblue.  Given it's internal only data it's not available publicly.

If you're interested in trying out lightblue there are some simple steps for getting started quickly on OpenShift documented in here: http://docs.lightblue.io/cookbook/quickstart.html

I'll point out that lightblue relies on the container for authentication and authorization.  The puppet module we have developed includes the capability to deal with SSL/TLS connections to lightblue and to a SSL enabled MongoDB back-end.  More information that is documented here: http://docs.lightblue.io/security/README.html 

Regards,
Naveen

We haven't had a strong reason do try this yet but it's something in the backlog.

https://github.com/lightblue-platform/lightblue-rest/issues/44

There are probably some tomcat specific configs that would need to be added to lightblue-rest to make it work, but it should be straight forward.  There are two jboss specific configurations currently.  First is to indicate what jboss module to load for the rest application.  Second is to specify the context root for the rest application.  Specific files in the metadata rest module for example:

https://github.com/lightblue-platform/lightblue-rest/blob/master/metadata/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/jboss-deployment-structure.xml
https://github.com/lightblue-platform/lightblue-rest/blob/master/metadata/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/jboss-web.xml

If this is something you'd like to incorporate in lightblue our contribution guide is http://dev.docs.lightblue.io/development_process/README.html

The summary would be: we're happy to review your pull request to add the feature!

Regards,
Naveen

Hi,

sorry, i didn't see that you were interested in know our use case.

So, we are looking for a platform to use as an agnostic and dinamic storage for a CRM software, many crud forms, master detail view.

a particular situation is when we have to get a list of records that are joined with other is this possible in lightblue ?

It is possible through the use of associations when you define
metadata. You can define "reference" type fields, and define
relationships between entities. However, there is no support for
ad-hoc joins. You can look at metadata specs in the language specs
docs.
