Managing complex applications and workloads in the cloud requires timely infrastructure reconfiguration automation. Application-centric management — in which your management efforts are focused on controlling all required resources as a unified system and the parameters for all runtime services as a single system definition — can provide an alternative, but equally effective, way to keep the performance level of your cloud at its best.
This article presents a definition of application-centric-style management, the three key steps to achieving it, and demonstrates how to automate the deployment of a two-tier J2EE application in the IBM Cloud. You get to practice action creation, hooking actions to events, and event handling.
