An early BETA version of the Cloud Foundry (CF) manifest file support is available in Visual Studio Code
. To see a video on this support follow the link below which shows how to install the extension and use Code Completion and a bit more follow link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao6Mx6Q0XKE
With this extension for manifest files, it becomes a pleasure to write and modify those CF manifest files. You get content-assist, validations, and hover (more...)
I previously showed how to push a ASP .NET Core application to Pivotal Cloud Foundry by just using the source code files itself. It turns out this creates a rather large droplet and hence slows down the deployment. So here we are going to take the same demo and use "dotnet publish
" to make this a lot faster. The previous post is here which is the base for this blog entry itself.
This post will show you how to write your first ASP.NET Core application on macOS or Linux and push it to Pivotal Cloud Foundry without having to PUBLISH it for deployment.
Before getting started you will need the following
1. Download and install .NET Core
2. Visual Studio Code
with the C# extension
3. CF CLI installed https://github.com/cloudfoundry/cliStepsNote: Assumes your already logged into Pivotal Cloud Foundry and connected to Pivotal (more...)
My answer on Quora to “Should I learn Spring or Oracle ADF?”:
Oracle ADF is a specialty skill, Java Spring is a general skill. Java Spring should be your default choice, unless:
- You work in an company that has made Oracle ADF their strategic choice, or
- You come from a 4GL tool like Oracle Forms and don’t know much Java yet
With ADF, you get higher productivity but less control. It was created by (more...)
Many of us struggle writing SQL in Java. ORM tools such as Hibernate often generate SQL statements that result in poor application performance. Surely, there must be a better way to write SQL in Java.

This is a handy little tip for cases where you just can't get your debugger to start in the right context or the framework you are using doesn't give you a clear path to know when you file might be loaded. (For example ABCS, or Application Builder Cloud Service, that I am currently working on has this problem)
Recently we announced Spring Cloud Task under the umbrella of Spring Cloud through the following blog
entry. In the post below I am going to show you how you would create a Cloud Foundry Task that can invoke this Spring Cloud Task itself.
Spring Cloud Task allows a user to develop and run short lived microservices using Spring Cloud and run them locally, in the cloud, even on Spring Cloud Data Flow. In this example (more...)
There are two ways to run .NET applications on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. In short it's as follows
- Windows 2012 R2 Stack (Windows 2016 coming soon)
- Linux Stack - ASP.NET Core CLR only
In the example below I am going to show how you would push a sample ASP.NET Core application using the default Linux stack. I am using run.pivotal.io
or better knows as PWS (Pivotal Web Services) instance which only supports a (more...)
Recently we added "Spring Boot Actuator support
" to Pivotal Web Services (PWS) http://run.pivotal.io
. If you want to try this out simply use the demo below which is all setup to verify how this works.https://github.com/papicella/SpringBootPCFPas
Once pushed you will see a Spring Boot icon in the Application Manager UI showing the Actuator support as per below.
