Using the tc Server build pack for Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.3

On Pivotal network you will find various build packs you can download and apply to PCF and use for your applications outside of the shipped build packs, using the link below.

https://network.pivotal.io/products/pivotal-cf

I am going to show how you would take one of these build packs , install it and then consume it from an application. In this demo I am going to use "tc server buildpack (offline) v2.4"

1. Log in as admin user and upload the build pack as shown below. I am adding this build pack in the last position which is position 6.

[Tue Oct 21 20:36:01 papicella@:~/cf/buildpacks ] $ cf create-buildpack tc_server_buildpack_offline tc-server-buildpack-offline-v2.4.zip 6
Creating buildpack tc_server_buildpack_offline...
OK

2. View buildpacks, which should show the one we just uploaded above.

tc_server_buildpack_offline   6          true      false    tc-server-buildpack-offline-v2.4.zip

3. Push application using your buildpack uploaded above, below is a simple manifest which refers to the build pack I uploaded.
