Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse Can Now Launch External Command-line Applications Using Service Tunnels

by March 14, 2013

In the course of developing, testing and deploying cloud applications, developers sometimes need to directly access the application data. The Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse advances this capability and now features the ability to launch external command-line applications for Cloud Foundry services like MySQL and PostgreSQL. The plugin offers Spring and Java developers using Eclipse or STS a way to manipulate, or port the data contained in their Cloud Foundry applications more easily.
An earlier release of the Cloud Foundry plugin (1.1.0) introduced tunneling support for data services, and the command-line application feature in 1.4.0 now extends the support by automatically resolving tunnel values when launching a command-line application for a Cloud Foundry service.
