Maybe you tried our first beta IBM Codename: BlueMix for Eclipse Beta available on the Eclipse Marketplace in April. The wait is over. We are pleased to announce that the GA version of IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix is now available as a free download!
I just posted an entry on my personal blog titled "enabling New Relic in a Cloud Foundry node application", which walks through enabling a node.js application with the New Relic monitoring service. As this enablement is generic to Cloud Foundry, it will of course work with Bluemix, and I've enabled one of my Bluemix apps - node-stuff - to make use of it.
As a followup to my last post for deploying Ghost.js on IBM codename:BlueMix, I would like to share a follow-up technique which utilizes a Cloudant CouchDB instance as a persistent image datastore.
Having covered how to deploy a trivial Node.js application to IBM Bluemix, this post goes deeper into features available for creating reusable manifest.yml files and covers Cloud Foundry buildpacks used during deployment. By the end of the post you will have deployed a trivial Hello World application written in PHP to a Zend Server's PHP container running on IBM Bluemix.
The Cloud Foundry command line client has just been updated to version 6, and is ready for use with BlueMix. This version is much simpler to install (no need to install Ruby) and is dramatically faster to use. Go ahead and give it a try in place of the older 'cf' version.
