> Hong Kong SAR, Peoples Republic of China - 29 February 2008 - Center for 
> E-Commerce Infrastructure Development (CECID), The University of Hong 
> Kong (HKU) is pleased to contribute Hermes Messaging Gateway v2.0 (H2O) 
> testing server for free to facilitate users to conduct self-service 
> testing after its installation.
> Since its release at CECID open-source community website 
> <http://community.cecid.hku.hk/index.php> in June 2007, H2O has been 
> downloaded and adopted by developers and users from over 60 economies 
> around the world. Overwhelming responses and valuable feedback are 
> received daily via the mailing list cecid-hermes2@googlegroups.com 
> <mailto:cecid-hermes2@googlegroups.com> and the community website, in 
> which some users reported that they experienced difficulties in setting 
> up the appropriate configuration during installation, and finding 
> partners for testing. In response to these comments related to H2O 
> installation, a testing server which serves as a virtual testing machine 
> is being setup at the community website to facilitate users to 
> troubleshoot installation problems and conduct self-service testing on 
> network connectivity to the Internet and message exchange functions.
> The H2O testing server (a.k.a. Swallow) is a web-based platform for 
> testing messaging functionality of any client installed with H2O. It 
> acts as a standardized, user-friendly, and comprehensive testing suite 
> for users to test and learn how to use H2O practically. At Swallow, a 
> user interface is provided to create an interoperability profile. After 
> setting up, users can send their testing messages from their message 
> gateway to Swallow. In turn, Swallow will send responses back to the 
> users' message gateway, notifying them the message status and reporting 
> error messages if any. All these network data is captured and displayed 
> at Swallow's web interface for ease of monitoring the message 
> connectivity. In short, Swallow helps users to install H2O more 
> effectively and provides an Internet-based host to test their H2O 
> deployment in a holistic way. Try it out yourself at 
> http://community.cecid.hku.hk/swallow/.
