PCF (Pivotal Cloud Foundry) new command line client

I decided to install the new CF v6 CLI for PCF (Pivotal Cloud Foundry). Given this will be the new CLI for PCF here is how it differs to the old Ruby CLI. In this example I deploy / push a spring based application and bind it to existing services.

To download and install the new CLI v6 use the link below.

http://docs.cloudfoundry.com/docs/using/managing-apps/cf/go-cli.html

In this example we have the following 2 services that already exist and I am using the PUBLIC hosted AWS version of PCF at https://console.run.pivotal.io/

  • dev-mysql
  • dev-redis

1. First lets deploy our application and when we do we DON'T actually start it at this point.

[Sun Feb 16 22:23:22 papicella@:~/vmware/pivotal/products/cloud-foundry/apps/spring-books ] $ cf push pas-books -d cfapps.io -i 1 -m 512M -p springmvc31.war --no-start

OK

2. Bind the application to the 2 services above.

[Sun Feb 16 22:25:56 papicella@:~/vmware/pivotal/products/cloud-foundry/apps/spring-books ] $ cf bind-service pas-books dev-mysql
Binding service dev-mysql to app pas-books in org papicella-org / space development as papicella@gopivotal.com...
OK
TIP: Use 'cf push' to ensure your env variable changes take effect

[Sun Feb 16 22:25:56 papicella@:~/vmware/pivotal/products/cloud-foundry/apps/spring-books ] $ cf bind-service pas-books dev-redis
Binding service dev-redis to app pas-books in org papicella-org / space development as papicella@gopivotal.com...
OK
TIP: Use 'cf push' to ensure your env variable changes take effect

3. Push the application again and this time start it.

[Sun Feb 16 22:29:26 papicella@:~/vmware/pivotal/products/cloud-foundry/apps/spring-books ] $ cf push pas-books -p springmvc31.war

And of course a running application
