Eclipse Tools for Cloud Foundry (CFT) provide an extensible framework and common UI to deploy applications to different Cloud Foundry targets, and it is a framework that closely integrates with Web Tools Platform (WTP) and Eclipse. It allows application scaling and services management from the same Eclipse-based IDE where applications are developed. Applications can also be debugged on Cloud Foundry using the built-in Eclipse debugger. This makes it very convenient for developers to work on applications running on CF.
The Cloud Foundry Tools are not specialized to just work with a specific Cloud Foundry platform. It allows users to set various Cloud Foundry targets, may it be public Cloud Foundry-based platforms like Pivotal Web Services, IBM Bluemix, or others.
Updates containing fixes for known bugs in the latest releases available from the downloads section and the Eclipse marketplace.
