In late July, I wrote a guest blog here about our development of a preview IBM WebSphere Liberty buildpack. I’m delighted to announce we have contributed the WebSphere Liberty Buildpack to the Cloud Foundry community. It now has its own Cloud Foundry GitHub repo, ibm-webphere-liberty-buildpack.
Importance of Buildpacks
Buildpacks can provide a complete runtime environment for a specific class of applications. They are key to providing portability across clouds and contributing to an open cloud architecture.

IBM WebSphere Liberty Buildpack on Cloud Foundry

IBM has just announced it is joining the Cloud Foundry project and making it a component of their open cloud architecture. Pivotal and IBM has jointly announced a series of actions to further engage the community in Cloud Foundry.

As one of the IBMers who have been engaging with Pivotal, I’ve really enjoyed the collaboration and certainly learned a lot. So, I’d like to tell you about the IBM/Pivotal collaboration around developing an IBM Java and Liberty buildpack.
Buildpacks offer Great Potential
A key part of the Cloud Foundry architecture is the use of buildpacks to specify and compose runtime environments for a class of applications. Cloud Foundry has adopted buildpacks from Heroku.
