I know how to test EC2 api's supported by nova using euca2ools. Now I want to start testing Openstack APIs of nova.

Are there any tools available similar to euca2ools to test Openstack APIs?

You could use the Ruby bindings which are based on the Cloud Servers API bindings. The Openstack API still has some functionality missing but the core is there.

1) First install the openstack-compute rubygem (gem install openstack-compute)

2) Then you can create Ruby scripts and objects to interact with the API. The example below works if you 'source novarc' first:

require 'rubygems' require 'openstack/compute'


cs.flavors.each do |flavor| puts flavor.inspect end

cs.images.each do |image| puts image.inspect end

cs.create_server(:name => "Test1", :imageId => 2, :flavorId => 1)

cs.servers.each do |server| puts server.inspect end
