Deploying Application with Cloud Foundry

In my previous post I have written about VMware Cloud Foundry, few days back I was playing with Cloud Foundry. Again, it looks very impressive and it seems Derek (Cloud Foundry CTO) team has done a fabulous job with this first PAAS offerning with Vmware. I have used and deployed my app with Google App Engine as well, and I have to say Cloud Foundry stand right there with Google App Engine and Amazon. In my view this will take lots of industry attention as it gets more mature and more and more folks will start using.

To give you an idea, it only took me 30-40 mins from the start to deploy this application. I have used VMC CLI tool to deploy this application. Spring STS also have plugin for Cloud Foundry, I might give it a try later on sometime. Here’s my first “Hello World” kind of application, which is deployed in Cloud Foundry.

Here's my terminal output from my mac:

Vikas-Kumars-MacBook-Pro:~ Vikas$ bash

bash-3.2$ vmc target
