Method and system to deploy a compiled binary application container file to a cloud-based PaaS platform from a client IDE

The disclosed solution solves multiple problems that developers using a client IDE currently face when deploying a compiled encrypted binary application container file to a cloud-based PaaS platform. These problems are as follows:

A developer must currently use command-line tools for deploying the application


1.

container. This requires inferred knowledge of the commands, syntax and configuration files necessary for deployment.

A local file-system copy of the application container file must be available for


2.

deployment. This may be difficult to obtain if the application container resides on a remote server.

The application container file must be fully written to disk before deployment. If


3.

the application container is open in the client IDE the integrity of the application container file cannot be guaranteed.

A developer must currently conduct multiple manual steps to deploy an


4.

application container file to a PaaS platform. This is a waste of valuable development cycles.

    The disclosed solution alleviates these problems by providing an integrated deployment solution for the client IDE. The application container must first be configured for deployment using a configuration wizard supplied by the client IDE. This associates the binary application container with a 'deployment' directory in the local file-system which will be used during the deployment phase. The wizard ensures that the 'deployment' directory contains all of the artifacts necessary for deployment to the PaaS platform. Once the application container has been configured...
