Getting Started with CloudBees and Eclipse
- Part 1 introduces the CloudBees PaaS environment and walks through my Eclipse setup, which plug-ins to install and how to set up the environment.
- Part 2 covers using the CloudBees Eclipse plug-in to create a new CloudBees project, and how to deploy locally and to the Cloud. The CloudBees plugin lets you create a web app template that you can use as a starter project.
- Part 3 explains how easy it is to integrate other cloud-based services with your apps, as well as a quick look at the Jenkins CI (Continuous Integration) service.
- Part 4 shows how to import Maven projects using the CloudBees plug-in, and how to deploy applications locally and in the Cloud via the Bees SDK and Eclipse. The video also shows how to use CloudBees environments and Maven profiles to control the deployment process. This is a really useful feature and I'll be doing a follow-on blog to drill down a bit deeper into how this works and what you can use it to do.
- Part 5 illustrates how to use Maven m2e Run Configurations with the CloudBees Maven plug-in to select CloudBees environment profiles when deploying from Eclipse (Part 6 shows how to do the same when deploying to the CloudBees PaaS).
- Part 6 concludes by showing how to select CloudBees environment profiles when deploying to the CloudBees PaaS.
