Adding the "Deploy to Bluemix" Button to my Bluemix Applications in GitHub

Not before time I finally added my first "Deploy to Bluemix" button on my GitHub projects for Bluemix applications. The screen shot below shows this for the Spring Session - Spring Boot Portable Cloud Ready HTTP Session demo.

Here is what it looks like when I do deploy this using the "Deploy to Bluemix" button and requires me to log in to IBM Bluemix. What happens when you use this button it adds the prohect code via FORK to your own DevOps projects , adds a pipeline to compile/deploy the code and finally deploys it as you Expect it to do.

Spring Session - Spring Boot application for IBM Bluemix

The following guide shows how to use Spring Session to transparently leverage Redis to back a web application’s HttpSession when using Spring Boot.


The demo below is a simple Spring Boot / Thymeleaf/ Bootstrap application to test Session replication using Spring Session - Spring Boot within IBM Bluemix. Same demo will run on Pivotal Cloud Foundry as well.

Integrating Telstra Public WIFI API into Bluemix

I previously blogged about Integrating Telstra Public SMS Api as shown below.


Here I show how I integrated Telstra Public WIFI Api into IBM Bluemix. This Api from Telstra is documented as follows. You need to register on http://t.dev to get the credentials to use thier API which I have previously done which then enables me to integrate it onto Bluemix


Once again here is the Api Within the Bluemix Catalog, these screen shots show the Api has been added to the Bluemix Catalog which can then be consumed as a service.

Finally here is a Web based application using Bootstrap so it renders quite well on mobile devices as well which allows you to enter your Latitidue, Longitude and Radius to find Telstra WIFI Hotspots using the Telstra WIFI Api on IBM Bluemix
