Jelastic Enables Java Applications to be Built and Deployed in the Cloud

Fastest, most efficient way to create Java apps

Now, using the next-generation platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering Jelastic, it is possible to build and run any Java application in the cloud instead of from a personal computer -- speeding development time and maximizing computing resources.

Jelastic allows developers to make code changes and rebuild applications in the cloud, removing the lag time caused whenever files are updated and uploaded from a personal computer. Jelastic can take application source code directly from version control repositories, via either the Git or SVN protocol.

Using Jelastic, developers can easily swap test and production environments with simple point-and-click. The same is true for cloning an exact copy to test or prepare an application for production deployment. 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."

Java is the programming language of choice used by nine million Java developers worldwide. Jelastic runs any Java application in the cloud without code changes and without writing for specific APIs (application programming interfaces). Application developers can choose which stack components they want and need, and their application will run and can scale easily on the Jelastic platform.
