IBM adds Java to Bluemix for open source agility

Giving users a more robust cloud experience.

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has made improvements to a set of services available through its cloud platform Bluemix, with the aim of enabling developers to integrate Java-based resources into their cloud-based applications.

With the new IBM Cloud tools, developers will be able to broaden the capabilities of their applications by utilising additional security and flexibility, providing users with a more robust cloud experience.

As part of the improvements, the IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix has been upgraded to include JavaScript Debug, support for Node.js applications, Java 8 Liberty for Java integration, and Eclipse Mars support along with improved trust self-signed certificates capability.

The runtime has been updated in the Liberty Buildpack to preview the latest Java EE 7 Liberty features.

Developers will be able to test and run applications in Bluemix with Java 8, while BM JRE 7.1 will remain the default. The beta of jsp-2.3, el-3.0, and jdbc-4.1 features has now been made production-ready.

Developers will also be able to introduce and market feature-rich, responsive, and secure applications through XPages on IBM Bluemix.

IBM highlighted that the Bluemix catalogue includes over 100 tools and services with prominent open-source technologies that can be combined with IBM and third party services to help developers build, run and manage cloud applications with more flexibility.
