IBM PureApplication System (IPAS) - Getting started
This year, I am starting to look at IPAS for, really, the first time.
Therefore, I'm building a list of things to read, and these two rather useful developerWorks articles popped into my focus, thanks to Twitter.
Part 1 of this article series teaches you how to develop plug-ins for virtual application patterns in IBM® Workload Deployer and IBM PureApplication™ Systems. The examples presented here are also applicable to IBM SmartCloud Application Workload Services. This article walks you through a simple example as it teaches you key concepts necessary to begin developing plug-ins and pattern types. This series complements the Navigating the IBM Cloud article series.
A virtual application pattern defines an abstract application model that is disconnected from the underlying topology. What if you want to enable your solution as a virtual application pattern, but it requires additional functionality not offered by the plug-ins in the existing pattern types? In this case, you need an extension to the out-of-the-box functionality. This second article of the series gives you a concrete, hands-on example on how to extend and customize an existing pattern type.
These are in addition to a previous blog post of mine: -
