In this article, we show you how to tier a hybrid application, and we guide you step by step through migrating parts of your Tomcat or WebSphere applications to Bluemix, while connecting to services best left within your enterprise. We introduce a tool you can use to determine if your application will run in the Bluemix Liberty Java buildpack, and we show you how to connect to an SQL database in the cloud or on-premise. We'll also explain how to update an application for important cloud considerations including session persistence, scaling, and logging.
