Cloud Application Development using Eclipse Tools for Cloud Foundry
The Eclipse Tools for Cloud Foundry is a new member of the cloud family at Eclipse. This talk will introduce the project to the audience and will show how to use the Eclipse Tools for Cloud Foundry to deploy, test and manage Java applications on Cloud Foundry without leaving the Eclipse IDE. We will also show how to scale applications, manage service bindings, or even live debug applications running on CF directly from within the IDE. The live demos will use various different Cloud Foundry installations (and is not Cloud Foundry vendor specific at all). Cloud Foundry itself is an open platform as a service that provides a choice of clouds, runtime frameworks, and application services. It is an open source project with a growing community that contributes and supports it.
The Eclipse Tools for Cloud Foundry can be used out of the box, but it can also be customized or extended by third parties to contribute their own Cloud Foundry flavors. We will briefly demo this in the talk as well.
