Jelastic platform is an innovative PaaS that received the Duke´s Choice Award 2012 (http://blog.jelastic.com/
The Jelastic plug-in for Eclipse provides the developer with the following useful functions:
- Ability to manage (start, stop, and so on) user environments,
- Deploy Eclipse projects to Jelastic,
- Access server log files, and much more.
All these functions are available from the Eclipse interface. Why is this so important? Even though Jelastic platform is designed to be very simple and user-friendly, it still can be very distracting and inconvenient to constantly switch between Eclipse and a browser. For many Java developers, Eclipse is at the core of their activities, so they will appreciate the opportunity to deploy an app in the cloud right from a familiar IDE.
The plug-in can be downloaded from http://marketplace.eclipse.org/
In the future, plug-ins for integration with other widely used IDEs will also be available.
