Using Cloud Foundry Services with Ruby: Part 2 – Run-time Support for Ruby Applications

by March 15, 2012

The services offered in Cloud Foundry are necessary for writing any serious application. Our aim is to make it easy to configure and consume these services. In addition to the auto-reconfiguration described in the Using Cloud Foundry Services with Ruby: Part 1 – Auto-reconfiguration blog post we also have support for manual service property lookup as well as library calls to obtain a pre-configured connection object.
Library call to obtain client object
For each supported service type there are corresponding library calls to obtain a pre-configured client object. This makes it easy to use in your code since you don’t have to lookup connection properties, instead you can rely on the library to do the work for you.
