Does BlueMix support Spring?

Before Write this topic,I got news for IBM site,the commercial BlueMix will be release at the end of June. Most service IBM provided are free of charge,you only need pay what use part of runtime enviroment fee.

 The Spring Framework is an open source application framework and inversion of control container for the Java platform. The framework's core features can be used by any Java application, but there are extensions for building web applications on top of the Java EE platform.Spring helps development teams everywhere build simple, portable,fast and flexible JVM-based systems and applications.

In order to demo the ability of the BlueMix ability we use the project on github.You can download it from
After download the package and unzip it and you should see the below strcture.
 Since it provide  a project object model (POM) xml file, we can use Maven to manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information. You can use maven to build the project .
You can use mvn package under the project strcutre.
It will generate hello-spring-env.war.So you can use cf command tool to publish this to the BlueMix,
For example we can use below command to push your app to the BlueMix.We bing a mysql service to our app,so the env will include the mysql service.
cf create-service mysql 100 mysql_NMU
cf p SpringSample -p hello-spring-env.war
cf bind-service SpringSample mysql_NMU

After deployment,you can see the result through the below url.You can mysql service is in the VCAP_SERVICE.
Also we can deploy the app in the eclipse,I left a eclipse strctrue for your reference.We can use cloundry plug-in to deploy it to the BlueMix side.
