Spring Cloud for Cloudfoundry makes it easy to run Spring Cloud apps in Cloud Foundry (the Platform as a Service). Cloud Foundry has the notion of a "service", which is middlware that you "bind" to an app, essentially providing it with an environment variable containing credentials (e.g. the location and username to use for the service).
spring-cloud-cloudfoundry-web project provides basic support for some enhanced features of webapps in Cloud Foundry: binding automatically to single-sign-on services and optionally enabling sticky routing for discovery.
spring-cloud-cloudfoundry-discovery project provides an implementation of Spring Cloud Commons
DiscoveryClient so you can
@EnableDiscoveryClient and provide your credentials as
spring.cloud.cloudfoundry.discovery.[email,password] and then you can use the
DiscoveryClient directly or via a
*.url if you are not connecting to Pivotal Web Services).
NOTE: if you are looking for a way to bind to services then this is the wrong library. Check out the Spring Cloud Connectors instead.
