SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- eXo , the enterprise Java portal and cloud user experience platform (UXP) company, today announced that its eXo Cloud IDE, the industry's only cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) for Java applications, has added Cloud Foundry™ to its roster of supported platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings. Developers deploying Java, Spring, Ruby and other types of applications to Cloud Foundry can now take advantage of the increased agility and accessibility delivered by cloud computing.

Cloud computing and PaaS offerings have been evolving for some time, but until now developers have not actually been able to build Java applications in the cloud. With eXo Cloud IDE, developing and deploying Java apps becomes much more streamlined and makes cloud platforms more accessible to developers.

"Cloud IDE makes it possible for developers to collaborate on building Java applications in the cloud, apps that they can deploy directly to Cloud Foundry in minutes," said Benjamin Mestrallet, founder and CEO of eXo. "The code now lives in the cloud, accessible from virtually anywhere with a browser and Internet access—so creating an app and moving it into Cloud Foundry is now very easy."

eXo is showcasing Cloud IDE in booth #171W at VMworld® 2011, being held at The Venetian and The Wynn hotels in Las Vegas, August 29–September 1, 2011. A webinar introducing eXo Cloud IDE is scheduled for September 8, 2011; participants can register at http://budurl.com/ubm3.

Expanding Opportunities

eXo Cloud IDE expands the options for developers. It is the only development-as-a-service (DaaS) offering to support Java application development, and the first to support Java Spring applications. It's the only offering that developers can use to build Java applications in a cloud-based IDE and deploy them directly to a PaaS. With the announcement of Cloud IDE as an on-ramp to Cloud Foundry, eXo Cloud IDE now supports a total of four PaaS environments. eXo has already announced eXo Cloud IDE support for CloudBees, Heroku and Red Hat OpenShift.

Today, developers around the world are using eXo Cloud IDE to collaborate on the creation of HTML5/JavaScript applications and OpenSocial gadgets as well as Java-, PHP-, and Ruby-based web apps. Support for additional languages, frameworks and PaaS environments is planned for the future.

eXo Cloud IDE Webinar

On September 8, eXo developer evangelist Jeremi Joslin will host a webinar on eXo Cloud IDE for developers and IT managers. Starting at 8:00 a.m. Pacific time, Jeremi will cover topics ranging from the advantages of developing in the cloud to deploying applications to PaaS offerings such as Cloud Foundry, Heroku, OpenShift and others.
