Specify the language pack to be used for app deploy

Registered by Roshan Agrawal on 2013-10-06

As an application developer, I can explicitly specify the language pack that the platform would use to deploy my code, instead of using the default language pack.

Minimum usage requirements:
-----------------------------------------
1) Allow a user to GET currently defined set of language packs in the platform

2) Define the format of specifying language pack in the application registration request.
    For example, if the registration request format is JSON then we might have a field to specify name of a language pack. Example:
    {
      language_pack: Java
    }

3) Enforce that the language pack selected by the user is from the set that is currently defined in the platform

4) Implement application registration logic (to register a validly described application in Solum database)

Whiteboard

Once the above requirements are implemented, we can consider following "admin" requirements:

1) Allow Solum admin to register/add new language pack to the platform.

Dependencies:
1) The details of the data model depends on the patches that Clayton has in flight currently.

2) From usage requirements point of view, the specifics of input registration format and the name to use for the language pack attribute depends on getting an agreement from the language pack working group on the specific name to be used.

3) From admin requirements point of view, we need to come up with the API and request/response format for registering a language pack with the platform.
