SmartCampus CloudFoundry PaaS Resources

Environment Setup

There are two ways to deploy and manage your apps on the PaaS:

  • using Eclipse plugin
  • using VMC command line tool (Linux/OS X)

You can set up the Eclpise plugin by following the steps in the official guide:

ATTENTION! The current CloudFoundry installation supports API v1.0 only. This means that the Eclipse plugin 1.5 or later will not work with this instance. You should install the Eclipse plugin version 1.4 as follows:

  1. open 'Help > Install New Software…'

NEW ATTENTION! It seems that plugin 1.4.0 is not more available in eclipse repo, so when you try use Eclipse presents you a newer version. Here you can download bin of 1.4 plugin (Tested sucessfully on Eclipse Luna)

Please also keep in mind that the endpoint URL must be: instead of the default one.

If you would like to use the command line tool instead, you should:

  • install Ruby (at least 1.9.3) through your package manager or
  • install the vmc gem:
    gem install vmc
  • and configure it:
    vmc target
    vmc login

Deploy an Application

Before starting you should know that your applications can be deployed only under the following domain name: *

So for example if you have a “HelloWorld” application then you should provide “” as domain during the deployment procedure.

If you would like to deploy by using the Eclpise plugin please check the official guide here:
