Jelastic : A better Cloud Hosting Solution for Java

| June 12, 2012

This guest post comes from our user Rajkumar's blog.

Lets try the Jelastic Cloud hosting solution which is far better and easier solution than Google App Engine. The other cloud hosting Solution which are getting popular these days are Cloud Foundry and OpenShift. I am not going to compare all these hosting solutions but try to getting started with Jelastic which offer a very user friendly UI to setup your application environment. I am trying to setup my small application on the Jelastic platform and it's not as tough as I was thinking it might be. The home page is pretty self explanatory on where you should start.

Let's setup our application environment by selecting JDK 6,Tomcat 6 and MongoDB as our NoSQL database,choose
your hosting provide and signup for free

Login with the password sent by jelastic to your registered mail address provide enviornment name and press create.
After pressing the create button jelastic takes some time to configure your enviornment and send the MongoDB node details to your registered mail id open the RockMongo (MongoDB web UI) with the help of provided userid and password.
Setup MongoDB configuration like database name,collection name etc with the help of GUI.

MyApp is up and Running.
