In Detail

CloudBees offers a Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build, run, manage web applications, and support the entire application lifecycle right from development to deployment.
The development and deployment of web- and mobile-based Java applications are the basic services that CloudBees has to offer. With these services you can efficiently build and enhance applications, and connect them to existing networks and systems.

Cloud Development and Deployment with CloudBees introduces you to the concept of Platform as a Service. It talks about the services in detail that developers can leverage in order to build, manage, and deploy their applications with ease onto the cloud. You will learn the intricacies of the CloudBees ecosystem and how it can be extended to match your specific requirements.

Cloud Development and Deployment with CloudBees will get you started with the concepts of PaaS and why it is considered better than other forms of services. You will then learn to create and manage your account, understand the CloudBees ecosystem, and subscribe to the wide array of services available. After this, you will use the clickStart feature that will enable you to set up, run, and host your application on the cloud. You will also venture out into the development phase by understanding Jenkins and how it would help you to build, maintain, and integrate your project build. You will then learn how to use the RUN@CLOUD platform to host your application, and you will also delve into cloud concepts, and understand the architectural constraints and how to monitor the application. Finally, you will deep dive into the extensive capabilities of using clickStack to create or customize your own stack.


This is an easy-to-follow yet comprehensive guide that follows a step-by-step approach to leverage the CloudBees services.

Comments about oreilly Cloud Development and Deployment with CloudBees:

This book is a very useful guide for any technologist wishing to enter the world of cloud computing with CloudBees. It can also be an interesting opportunity for non-IT people to explore a new domain. The chapters are organized very well, and their content is clear and comprehensible. There are many examples and walk-through tutorials. I find it hard to identify anything the book lacks; it appears to cover all the bases business and IT people need -- now -- to take action and start reaping the major costs savings offered by cloud computing. We will undoubtedly see updated editions as changes occur in this field.
