Red Hat is pleased to announce a new release of the OpenShift Online service:

Tomcat 7 is Now Supported

Tomcat 7 is now available via the jbossews-2.0 cartridge. To give it a try just run the following:

$ rhc app create myapp jbossews-2.0

JBoss EAP 6.0.1 is Now supported

After that you're all set. Also on the Java/JBoss front we've updated to JBoss EAP-6.0.1, you don't need to do anything on your end, we've already updated things for you and your app should continue to function as is.

Protections Against Node Failure

One of the behind the scenes features we've added ensures your application is spread across as many OpenShift nodes as possible. This means that with a scaled, three gear application, none of the gears will be on the same node. This lessens the impact of a node failure.

Command Line Interface Updates

There have been several updates to the CLI as well. Run sudo gem update rhc to get the latest version.

After the update, gem list -l rhc, and rhc --version can help you verify that you are working with our most recent release (1.3.8).

The following commands have been updated:

$ rhc help
$ rhc setup
$ rhc account # NEW!
$ rhc apps # NEW!
$ rhc cartridge list
$ rhc app create
$ rhc sshkeys

Another neat trick, the rhc app create command now supports the --from-code=<URL> parameter. This allows you to create a new app from a git repo, for example:

rhc app create wordpress php-5 mysql-5.1 --from-code=git://

Unix Socket Support

We've fully enabled PostgreSQL Unix socket support. Previously it didn't work as designed, but it should be fixed now.

What's Next?
