Stackato Beta 0.5: PHP, Clojure, and RabbitMQ

We're happy to announce that our latest Stackato Beta release has more than just performance improvements and bug fixes.

Thanks to some code contributions to the core project from fellow Cloud Foundry community lead AppFog and plenty of hard work by our own developers, we have been able to add PHP, Clojure, and RabbitMQ support to the Stackato VM.

  • PHP: We're very familiar with PHP and have supported this language for years in Komodo IDE. Now that we've added PHP support to the Stackato VM you can use the two together to create, debug and deploy your applications. We've added a couple of PHP sample apps to get you started.
  • Clojure: A Lisp-like language that compiles directly to JVM bytecode, Clojure brings some of the benefits of dynamic programming languages to the JVM. We have some documentation on deploying Clojure apps to Stackato.
  • RabbitMQ: You can now add a messaging service to your application as easily as you can add a database service. This type of service is especially useful for connecting cloud-based applications that may be running on different systems, and the Cloud Foundry team has an in-depth blog post on the topic which includes links to several tutorials and samples on using RabbitMQ with Ruby, Java, and Node.

If you don't already have access to Stackato Beta, fill out the form here and get started.

If you already have access, get the latest micro cloud (VM) here, read the docs, and have a look at the sample applications.

Create and deploy your own app with Stackato today! We'd love to hear what you think of it. If you need any help or have any feedback, just email us.
