Granny's Addressbook comes to SAP Netweaver
Some vendors complained that we left them out. One vendor complained (before the article) that we included them. Other vendors took action and deployed Granny to their own cloud.
So this is what i did: (it took less than 2 minutes and roughly 20 minutes to write this blog).
I downloaded the war and deployed the app AS IS with the NetWeaver Cloud Console Client to my Neo account.
$ neo deploy --user D040755 --account harald --host netweaver.ondemand.com --application granny --source ./ granny.war
$ neo start --user D040755 --account harald --host netweaver.ondemand.com --application granny --synchronous
And this is the result:
Requesting start for:
account : harald
host : https://netweaver.ondemand.com
User : D040755
Start request performed successfully.
Triggered start of application processes.
Component status: STARTING

And you can even see granny running on SAP NetWeaver!
I have to admit that I'm honored! "Granny" is just a little piece of our staff training materials for teaching our associate developers how to use the Spring Framework and now she is global and proving PaaS offerings that I've never even used. I hope to see others prove to Granny that they can make the cut :-)
