Vert.x 3 and Azure cloud platform tutorial

Vert.x 3.2.1 ap­pli­ca­tions can quickly be de­ployed on Mi­crosoft Azure. De­ploy­ment is in­de­pen­dent of your build so it is all about con­fig­u­ra­tion.

About Azure

Azure by de­sign does not sup­port multicast on the net­work vir­tu­al­iza­tion level, how­ever all vir­tual ma­chines de­fined on the same group are de­ployed on the same net­work (by de­fault), so TCP-IP dis­cov­ery can be en­abled and quickly setup to form a clus­ter.

This how you would de­ploy your app:

  1. cre­ate a fat-jar with your app
  2. cre­ate a cluster.xml with tcp-​ip dis­cov­ery
  3. run your app with: cp folder_of_your_cluster_xml_file -cluster -cluster-host VM_PRIVATE_IP
