Jelastic Puts Java Apps In The Cloud


Jelastic has ramped up its Java server hosting platform for developers with a newly refined Platform‑as‑a‑Service (PaaS) function. Updating its central offering as it has, Jelastic now allows programmers to build and run a Java application in the cloud instead of from a personal computer. Using Jelastic's platform, developers can swap test and production environments to fine tune their work. There is also the option to clone an exact copy to test or prepare an application for production deployment.

The company's goal has been to give developers the opportunity to make code changes and rebuild applications inside of a hosted cloud computing environment. The theory is that this will remove the "lag time" caused whenever files are updated and uploaded from a personal computer. Application source code compatibility exists for version-control repositories working to either the Git or SVN protocol.

Jelastic is fully compatible with existing Java applications and libraries. Java developers have access to support for any JVM-based application including pure Java 6 or 7, JRuby, Scala, and Groovy. In addition, Jelastic provides support for SQL databases that include MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. Non-SQL database support is provided for MongoDB and CouchDB. Supported application servers include Tomcat 6 and 7, GlassFish, and Jetty. Load balancing and caching is done though integrated NGINX and developer tools integration via Maven and Ant plug-ins.

"With our Java hosting platform, application developers have the easiest, fastest, most efficient way to build and deploy any Java application," said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO, Jelastic. "We provide all the most popular options for any Java developer on the world's first cloud platform to host and auto-scale any Java application."
