Business Track presented by Adam Gunther, Program Director, Cloud Offerings for IBM WebSphere Product Management at IBM.

Are you a developer who uses Eclipse? Do you want to get involved in a project with the goal to provide a first-class Cloud Foundry development environment for Eclipse? If so, then come learn about the Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse project. The Cloud Foundry eclipse plug-in allows developers to perform such tasks as deploy applications to Cloud Foundry, view and manage deployed applications and services, and perform direct debugging when using a Micro Cloud Foundry. Come learn more about the current tools and community, what is planned for the future, and ways you can contribute.

  • 9. © 2014 IBM Corporation Charts are boring – it’s demo time! Adam Gunther @agunther20 #cfsummit
  • 10. © 2014 IBM Corporation How can I develop my own extension? • Start by taking a look at the Pivotal CF branding plugin as an example: org.cloudfoundry.ide.eclipse.server.branding • Create your own branding plugin by cloning that branding plugin as your starting point • Try adding a new extension of org.cloudfoundry.ide.eclipse.server.core.application and org.cloudfoundry.ide.eclipse.server.ui.applicationWizard to define support for deploying a new type of module. • Check out vendor specific IBM Bluemix implementation in action: IBM Codename: Bluemix for Eclipse Kepler Beta ( eclipse-kepler) Adam Gunther @agunther20 #cfsummit
