Deploying a Python application to IBM Bluemix

The following simple example shows how to push the basic hello world Python application to IBM Bluemix. We use the buildpack below.

https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-python.git

1. Create a file called requirements.txt

pas@pass-mbp:~/bluemix-apps/python-demo$ cat requirements.txt
Flask==0.10.1


2. Create a file called runtime.txt to detail the Python version to use

pas@pass-mbp:~/bluemix-apps/python-demo$ cat runtime.txt
python-2.6.5


3. Push the application using the buildpack above.

pas@pass-mbp:~/bluemix-apps/python-demo$ cf push pas-phython-demo -m 128m -b https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-python.git

A Meteor buildpack for Bluemix to simplify the deployment

I previously blogged about deploying a Meteor application to Bluemix as follows

http://theblasfrompas.blogspot.com.au/2015/04/deploying-simple-meteor-application-to.html

The following Buildpack created by an Internal IBM employee streamlines the process of deployment and avoids the need for ENV variables with the pushed application, here;s how. It's also detailed in the GitHub buildpack URL below.

https://github.com/bancha001/bluemix-buildpack-meteor

1. Create .cfignore to exclude the path 'local' to be uploaded

pas@pass-mbp:~/ibm/software/meteor/simple-todos$ cat .cfignore
.meteor/local


2. Create a manifest.yml which includes an existing MongoDB service as shown below.

---
applications:
- memory: 256M
  domain: mybluemix.net
  path: .
  buildpack: https://github.com/bancha001/bluemix-buildpack-meteor
  host: pas-todo
  name: pas-todo
  disk: 512M
  services:
    - todo-mongo-db
  instances: 1


3. Push the application

pas@pass-mbp:~/ibm/software/meteor/simple-todos$ cf push
Using manifest file /Users/pas/ibm/software/meteor/simple-todos/manifest.yml

Deploying a simple Meteor Application To IBM Bluemix

In this post I show what is necessary to deploy a simple Meteor application to IBM Bluemix public instance. In this example we already have a simple Meteor application we have tested and verified using "meteor" itself , running on localhost at port 3000.

1. Lets remove the local DB files, be careful as this will remove the local DB so you should do this when your ready to deploy to Bluemix only.

pas@pass-mbp:~/ibm/software/meteor/myfirst_app$ meteor reset
Project reset.


2. Create a manifest.yml file for the deployed application, the ENV variable ROOT_URL is required and also a buildpack which supports Meteor runtime is being pushed with the application.

applications:
 - name: pas-meteor-firstapp
   memory: 256M
   instances: 1
   path: .
   host: pas-meteor-firstapp
   domain: mybluemix.net
   buildpack: https://github.com/jordansissel/heroku-buildpack-meteor.git
env:
   ROOT_URL: http://pas-meteor-firstapp.mybluemix.net/


3. Push the application as shown below.

pas@pass-mbp:~/ibm/software/meteor/myfirst_app$ cf push -f manifest.yml

5. Access as shown below.

http://pas-meteor-firstapp.mybluemix.net/


Finally if you need to use a data store which most applications will then you need to define an ENV variable for your MongoDB store as shown below. In this example below I am using a service in the Bluemix catalog for MongoDB itself and

   MONGO_URL: mongodb://zzzzzzzzz:yyyyyyyyyyy

Bluemix IBM Containers Simple NodeJS Demo

I decided to give the IBM Containers service a quick test drive today. I used this very simple example available at the following GitHub URL

https://github.com/Samze/ibm-containers-simple-node-example

1. Clone the source code as follows

pas@192-168-1-4:~/temp$ git clone https://github.com/Samze/ibm-containers-simple-node-example

Adding MySQL driver to Spring Boot CLI Groovy Demo

I previously showed how you can use the Spring Boot CLI to create a simple Restful Application saying Hello World as shown in the link below using Groovy.

http://theblasfrompas.blogspot.com.au/2015/02/spring-boot-hello-world-from-command.html

If you wanted to extend that demo to include additional dependencies JAR file such as MySQL driver jar file we would do the following

1. You can add extensions to the CLI using the install command as shown below to add MySQL driver. This is installed in the LIB folder of the Spring Boot CLI location directory

> spring install mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.34

2. Package the application into a JAR which now includes the MySQL driver JAR file to enable you to connect to a MySQL instance from your application. You will need to write the code to do that , BUT now the JAR file is packaged in the JAR created to enable you to do that.

> spring jar -cp /usr/local/Cellar/springboot/1.2.1.RELEASE/lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.34.jar hello.jar hello.groovy

Note: If you find that you reach the limit of the CLI tool, you will probably want to look at converting your application to full Gradle or Maven built “groovy project”

Reading VCAP_SERVICES Postgresql service credentials within Bluemix

The following shows how you can easily read the VCAP_SERVICES postgresql credentials within your Java Code using the maven repo. This assumes your using the ElephantSQL Postgresql service. A single connection won't be ideal but for demo purposes might just be all you need.

1. First add the maven dependency as follows. This will add WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile to your project

  
<dependency>
        <groupId>com.ibm.tools.target</groupId>
        <artifactId>was-liberty</artifactId>
        <version>LATEST</version>
        <type>pom</type>
        <scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>

2. In your code , something as follows gets you the Connection details to make a JDBC connection withinyou java code.
  
private static Connection getConnection() throws Exception 
{
 Map<String, String> env = System.getenv();
 
 if (env.containsKey("VCAP_SERVICES")) {

  JSONObject vcap = (JSONObject) JSON.parse(env.get("VCAP_SERVICES"));
  JSONObject service = null;
  
  // We don't know exactly what the service is called,
  // but it will contain "elephantsql"
  for (Object key : vcap.keySet()) {
   String keyStr = (String) key;
   if (keyStr.toLowerCase().contains("elephantsql")) {
    service = (JSONObject) ((JSONArray) vcap.get(keyStr)).get(0);
    break;
   }
  }
  
  if (service != null) {
   JSONObject creds = (JSONObject) service.get("credentials");
   URI uri = URI.create((String) creds.get("uri"));
   String url = "jdbc:postgresql://" + uri.getHost() + ":" +
            uri.getPort() +
            uri.getPath();
   String username = uri.getUserInfo().split(":")[0];
   String password = uri.getUserInfo().split(":")[1];
   return DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);
  }
 }
 
 throw new Exception("No ElephantSQL service URL found. Make sure you " +
      "have bound the correct services to your app.");
}

Spring Boot - Hello World from the command line to IBM Bluemix in 1 minute

Here is how simple Spring Boot makes saying Hello World web based application with no IDE and no no need to package it up. Nearly as easy as NodeJS

1. Firstly install the Spring Boot CLI. From mac use brew as follows

pas@192-168-1-4:~$ brew tap pivotal/tap
Cloning into '/usr/local/Library/Taps/pivotal/homebrew-tap'...

��  /usr/local/Cellar/springboot/1.2.1.RELEASE: 6 files, 8.6M, built in 98 seconds


2. Now create a simple groovy file called hello.groovy as follows

  
@RestController
class HelloWorld {
  @RequestMapping("/")
  String home() {
    return "Hello World!"
  }
}

3. Run using the spring boot CLI as follows

pas@pass-mbp:~/ibm/software/spring/spring-boot/groovy-example$ spring run hello.groovy

4. Invoke in a browser and you have your "Hello World" or just use "curl" as follows

pas@192-168-1-4:~/ibm/software/spring/spring-boot/groovy-example$ curl http://localhost:8080
Hello World!


5. Finally lets create a runnable JAR we can then deploy to IBM Bluemix

pas@192-168-1-4:~/ibm/software/spring/spring-boot/groovy-example$ spring jar hello.jar hello.groovy

6. Finally deploy to IBM Bluemix using the runnable JAR file as follows

pas@192-168-1-4:~/ibm/software/spring/spring-boot/groovy-example$ cf push hello-spring-boot -i 1 -m 256M -p ./hello.jar

IBM Bluemix - Deploy your app the way you want

We recently upgraded our capability in the IBM public cloud. Before this new version you could build, test, and deploy apps on Bluemix by using open source Cloud Foundry technology. But now you have more choice bringing two new options as follows

1. IBM Containers Beta

Use IBM Containers to run apps and services in a hosted cloud environment. Port your existing applications to IBM Bluemix and make them publicly accessible and composable. Use a private registry to upload, store, and retrieve your trusted images.

2. Virtual Machines Beta

Get total control over your app's infrastructure by deploying virtual machines. Manage them from the Bluemix dashboard, or from anywhere with OpenStack APIs.


Try it out as follows
