100-day Challenge #002: Running postgresql-cf-service-broker on Cloud Foundry

by February 17, 2016

The 2nd topic of “Cloud Foundry 100-day Challenge” is postgresql-cf-service-broker, which may come as a little bit of a twisted feeling.
Basic Information

Source code:

This application is actually is not a typical application. It is an application that functions as a service broker for Clould Foundry.
Having said that, the reason that we are covering this topic now is because we utilized this application to build the PostgreSQL service in the previous Kandan article, so we found it appropriate to cover this topic at this timing.
Additionally, we believed that this article will prove useful to readers who are, or are considering, building Cloud Foundry environments using bosh-lite, etc. on their own.

New Runtime Module for Node.js Applications

In the previous blog post, Cloud Foundry Now Supports Auto-Reconfiguration for Node.js Applications, we saw that Node.js applications deployed to can be automatically reconfigured to connect to Cloud Foundry services. However, there may be situations where you want to opt-out of that feature to have finer control over service connections or to overcome its limitations. In those cases, your applications would be required to parse JSON-formatted environment variables to perform that same function. While this is not overly complex given that JSON is trivial to parse with JavaScript, you will be required to understand the environment variable names and their payload schema.
