Deploy a web application from Eclipse to Bluemix

I have just started exploring IBM Bluemix and thought of sharing how to push your web application while is created using Eclipse IDE to Bluemix.

  • You need to create an account of your own on Bluemix to be able to deploy an application to Bluemix.
  • Before you start creating web application, you need to install eclipse plugin for Bluemix to your Eclipse IDE. You can search for eclipse market place (Eclipse >> Help >> Eclipse Market place). Type "Bluemix" in the Find in the market place console  as shown in the figure.

Once we are done with plugin installation we are good to go.

Now Lets get in to topic -

Create a simple hello World Web Application in the Eclipse (Assuming you already know how to create a web application).Below image shows my web application structure.
