- Sign up: http://openshift.redhat.com/app/ (~ 1 min)
- Create environment https://openshift.redhat.com/app/express#quickstart (~2 min on Mac)
- Bind a domain name to your account:
rhc-create-domain -n adambien -l [USER_NAME] -p [PASSWORD]
- Create an application. It will create a (git) repository remotely and clone it:
rhc-create-app -l [USER_NAME] -p [PASSWORD] -t jbossas-7.0 -a [APP_NAME] (serversmoke)
(...) Confirming application serversmoke is available Attempt # 1 Success! Your application is now published here: http://serversmoke-adambien.rhcloud.com/
- Remove maven artifacts to deploy a WAR:
git rm -r src pom.xml
- Rename your war into ROOT.war and copy it into the ./deployments folder (this is important)
- Deploy your application with:
remote: Stopping application... remote: done remote: Found .openshift/config/standalone.xml... copying to /var/lib/libra/...1/serversmoke/jbossas-7.0/standalone/configuration/ remote: running .openshift/action_hooks/build remote: Starting application...done To ssh:/...@serversmoke-adambien.rhcloud.com/~/git/serversmoke.git/ 0959209..c2d3edd master -> master
http://[APPLICATION-NAME]-[DOMAIN-NAME].rhcloud.com. The ServerSmokeTest application used for this class test is available under: http://serversmoke-adambien.rhcloud.com/: it is the same application used for smoke tests of the other Java EE 6 servers previously: Glassfish v3, JBoss 6m5, SIwpas-1.0.0-CR4, resin-4.0.12 and "on premise" JBoss 7 So there is no smoke in the clouds: it works almost identical to a local Jboss 7 deployment. What can be improved:
- The documentation at the website is out of sync with the implementation. E.g. the jbossas-7.0 application type is not even mentioned in the docs
- The domain registration offered in the website seems to be useless - use the command line. It is easier and works immediately.
- I would expect with "git pull" to get the actual log files. It is not the case.
