Steps to Run an App
To ensure that your app can use all the features from PCC, use the latest buildpack. The buildpack is available on GitHub at cloudfoundry/java-buildpack.
Binding your apps to a service instance enables the apps to connect to the service instance and read or write data to the region.
cf bind-service APP-NAME SERVICE-INSTANCE-NAME to bind an app to your service instance.
APP-NAME with the name of the app.
SERVICE-INSTANCE-NAME with the name you chose for your service instance.
$ cf bind-service my-app my-cloudcache
Binding an app to the service instance provides connection information through the
VCAP_SERVICES environment variable.
Your app can use this information to configure components, such as the GemFire client cache, to use the service instance.
