I'm very happy to provide an update to Troy's post from last week about connecting to database services in stackato. In that post, he said:

Using YAML to Drive App Deployment

By Troy Topnik, November 30, 2011
stackato.yml config - Automated Deployment

There's a very handy but sometimes overlooked feature of the stackato client that we'd like to let you know more about. I often have to remind myself to point it out when I'm doing demos for people, as it's something that I've quickly come to take for granted.

Connecting to Database Services in Stackato

By Troy Topnik, November 21, 2011

I was going to write a fairly straightforward post about Stackato's 'dbshell' command, demonstrating how you can use it to access the databases provisioned by Stackato. However, a few days ago Cloud Foundry blogged about Caldecott, demonstrating how to connect to database services on cloudfoundry.com, so the scope of this article has changed a bit.

Cloud Expo Wrap-Up: Building Private Clouds, Private PaaS

By Angie Hirata, November 11, 2011

Fresh back from Cloud Expo West, it was a great event to further educate, evangelize, and promote private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Stackato. Being that Stackato (our private PaaS cloud platform) is new for us in 2011, it was the first Cloud Expo we've participated in. And participate we did! We were busy the entire week giving talks, sitting on panels, attending sessions, meeting with partners, and talking to lots of people at our booth. Phew!

Using Eclipse STS with Stackato

By Graham Stuart, November 8, 2011

Last week, we decided to take SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) for a spin with Stackato. The point was to try a tool engineered for a standard version of Cloud Foundry with our variant, and make sure our version hadn't lost the ability to work with STS.

As an added wrinkle, our tester (yours truly) is not a regular Eclipse user. Presumably, if I could make STS Integration work, then the process wasn't excessively complex.
