Cloud Foundry Eclipse 1.6.0: Spring Boot Support and Self-Signed Certificates

by March 25, 2014

Cloud Foundry Eclipse integrates Cloud Foundry server and application management into Eclipse and Spring Tool Suite (STS). You can push applications to a Cloud Foundry server via drag and drop from the Eclipse Project Explorer much in the same way as deploying to a local tomcat server. Application memory and instances can be scaled easily, and services created and bound to an application through drag and drop. A comprehensive description of the plug-in is available at:
http://docs.cloudfoundry.org/devguide/deploy-apps/sts.html
Since 1.5.0, we have been busy making CF Eclipse ready to better support new features in Cloud Foundry public and private servers.
Version 1.6.0 introduces additional enhancements:

Support for Spring Boot applications.

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.

Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse Now Supports Standalone Java Applications and Java 7

by September 13, 2012

A new release of Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse is available which features the ability to publish standalone Java applications to CloudFoundry.com using either Java 6 or Java 7. Java 7 is also now supported for Grails, Java Web and Spring applications. Standalone applications can only be published to Cloud Foundry instances that support standalone applications such as CloudFoundry.com.
The new integration (version 1.2.0)  allows users to publish standalone Java applications from within Eclipse Indigo JEE or SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) version 2.9.0 or higher.
The previous Cloud Foundry plugin (1.1.0) introduced tunneling support for data services, and further improvements to service tunneling are also available as part of 1.2.0.

Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse Now Supports Tunneling to Services

by July 31, 2012

Today we announce a new release of Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse which features the ability to open a tunnel to any Cloud Foundry data service. Now Eclipse users can use familiar client applications to directly analyze, manipulate, or port the data contained in their Cloud Foundry applications.
The Cloud Foundry Data Tunneling service can be created from the Services table in the Cloud Foundry Eclipse server editor. The new integration (version 1.1.0)  allows users to create data tunneling (also known as ‘Caldecott‘) from within Eclipse Indigo JEE or SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) version 2.9.0 or higher.
Follow the documented instructions to install the Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse.
