Before you can build your application using XDS, you need to be sure you have satisfied the requirements described in this section.

  • The Client Part (i.e.xds-agent) is running locally on your machine. For information about xds-agent and how to install it, see the “Client Part” section.

  • The Server Part (i.e. xds-server) is running locally in a docker container or is accessible on your network For information about xds-server and how to install it, see the “Server Part” section.

  • one or more Software Development Kits (SDKs) are installed. For information on installing an SDK, see the “AGL SDKs” or “Download or Build Your SDK Installer” sections.

  • Your XDS configuration is correct. You can test this connection between the xds-agent and xds-server by opening the XDS Dashboard in a Web Browser and confirming no error messages. See the “Check if xds-server is Running” section.
