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).
Eclipse is an awesome IDE, but setting up your application's dependencies to run locally... sucks. The "browser-based" Eclipse makes it easy to develop in the cloud, but only if you forgo the rich features of your desktop IDE. Why can't we have the best of both worlds? Turns out, we can! This talk investigates the principles of the CDT/PTP (what works well and what works not-so-well), and applies the lessons learned to create a cloud-capable build of eclipse which we use for editing general Java & Web Applications.
