Developing Single Page Web Applications using Java 8, Spark, MongoDB, and AngularJS
Learn how to use a micro framework called Spark to build a RESTful backend. The RESTful backend is consumed by a single page web application using AngularJS and MongoDB for data storage. Also learn how to run Java 8 on OpenShift.
The Future of OpenShift and Docker Containers
Docker takes the power of Linux containers, pairs them with an efficient file system abstraction for delivering the exact libraries you need to any server, and then makes it all ridiculously easy to use. This gets to the heart of platform as a service – giving developers deep control over their stack and making it easy to control when and how changes are made.
Run Your Nodejs projects on OpenShift in Two Simple Steps

Building Distributed and Event-driven Applications in Java or Scala With Akka on OpenShift
This post shows how to deploy Akka on OpenShift in a very non-automated way, however, OpenShift provides a way to automate these steps by using a cartridge. It’s reasonably simple to add support for not-officially-supported frameworks to OpenShift.
OpenShift V3 Deep Dive Tutorial | The Next Generation of PaaS
If you can run your application in a Docker container, you can run it in OpenShift v3. Let’s dig in and see just how you can do that with code that’s available today. Here’s a walk through of setting up OpenShift and deploying a simple application.
Microsoft .NET Apps on OpenShift
We announced Microsoft .NET and SQL Server capabilities to OpenShift as an open source community-driven effort in OpenShift Origin. OpenShift Origin is the upstream community project that drives innovation for both our OpenShift Online service and OpenShift Enterprise product.
