BlueMix has integration with IBM DevOps services.

If you are interested in emerging technology like PaaS (Platform as a Service), then you should take a look at BlueMix (code name) from IBM.  It is currently open beta. There is a good news for you. User registration is done in minutes !  Previously, it took about days.

The BlueMix is continuously evolving.  I got notice from developers that there is a feature to link to IBM DevOps services.

20140424 - add git integration

Simply, click “Add Git integration” button in your application page. This will create a private project in IBM DevOps Services.

There are a couple of cautions of using this integration (at the time of writing this blog entry).

  1. It will create a project, but the application codes are not cloned into the repository, unless the application is created from boiler plate.
  2. You have to put your code manually (or add remote repository using “git remote add”).
  3. You need manifest.yml file to be created to use automatic deploy to BlueMix.

As for #3, I recommend to read this documentation at http://www.cloudfoundry.org.

Deploying with Application Manifests

For example, if you want to run the Node application with “app.js” as starting point. Then the manifest.yml should look like this.

---
applications:
- name: nifty-node
  command: node app.js
  memory: 64M
  host: nifty-node
  path: .

That it !   Enjoy the application development and instant application deployment using IBM DevOps services !
