In Detail

Cloud computing and particularly Platform as a Service is rapidly changing the way software engineers approach software development. Without knowing the gritty details of the operating system and application servers, developers are able to use the OpenShift Online Platform to performance tune and achieve scalability whilst also ensuring that their applications are stable and reliable.

This book will guide you through the essential concepts necessary to use the OpenShift Platform. Whether you are a seasoned developer with years of experience or just starting to learn how to write software, this book will provide you with all of the information you need from account creation, installation and configuration of client tools, to integrating an IDE with the service, deployment and management of PHP and Java-based applications.

Starting with configuring your local environment to communicating with the OpenShift Online platform, you will learn how to leverage OpenShift to create and manage applications deployed to the public cloud. After your environment is set up and configured, get hands-on with developing some JavaEE and Spring-based applications and check how you can deploy them to both the Tomcat and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform application servers with ease.

You will gain insights into using JAX-RS and CDI to build a responsive geospatial application and more. With generous amounts of sample code and screenshots, this book will ensure your success in speeding up application development time while also creating enterprise class scalable applications.
