Following our previous blog post on Clojure, you may wonder if your favorite alternative web stack is supported on CloudBees Platform as a Service (PaaS).
The short answer is yes, as long as it runs on the JVM and can be packaged as a WAR archive. To be more precise, each JVM-based language has its own tools and frameworks, that can nicely integrate with CloudBees as long as the adequate plugin is provided.
Taking Groovy and Grails as a sample, DEV@Cloud provides the grails Jenkins plugin and runtimes to build and test applications, and the community contributed grails-cloud-bees plugin can manage deployment to RUN@Cloud.
Skillsmatter is organizing the Grails eXchange conference in London next week, and we will demonstrate this combination in collaboration with Grails plugin author, Marco Vermeulen. Meet us there!
