Running Standalone Web Applications on Cloud Foundry

by May 11, 2012

In this final post of the four-part series on deploying standalone apps to Cloud Foundry, we will explore how to build and deploy JVM-based web applications that aren’t packaged as traditional WAR files. This includes applications that are built on top of an NIO Framework like Grizzly or Netty (notable frameworks include Blue Eyes and vert.x) and applications that ship their own container, such as an embedded Jetty server.
