Hello, we have local cf installation cf-for-k8s. Is it possible to configure plugin to use v3 api? Thanks.

In reply to by Mikulas Strelecky

I don't think there is a version of the plugin around that supports v3 of the API yet. I think (as far as I remember) the missing v3 support in the corresponding Java library that this pliugin for Eclipse uses to communicate with CF is the culprit here.

Hello, we have local cf installation on k8s, which is - cf-for-k8s and while trying to deploy from eclipse im getting "Staging through the v2 API is disabled" in the cloudfoundry-client-4.3.0.RELEASE.jar I see that there is v3 already somehow... Is it possible to configure plugin to use v3 api? Any info or idea is highly appreciated. Thanks. Best


During adding the server, I need to signup to Pivotal API. If i go for the free trial, then it's chargeable ? Is there anyway I can develop and build and deploy my Java/Spring application to Could Foundry ?


In reply to by Koushik Maiti

There are multiple versions and variants of Cloud Foundry running on public clouds and their pricing and free plans vary. The Pivotal Web Services version ( is free for some trial period. So you can sign up for that free trial and deploy your Java/Spring app there. But you can't run your app forever for free on PWS. Others like IBM Bluemix might serve different free plans. Hope this helps!

I can't install this in Spring Tool Suite... I've tried older versions and manually as well. Always throws the same dependency error:

Cannot complete the install because some dependencies are not satisfiable
Software being installed: Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse (
Software currently installed: Cloud Foundry Tools Core 1.0.0.v201511252324 ( 1.0.0.v201511252324)
Cannot satisfy dependency:

In reply to by Louis Loizides

It looks like you already have the newer version of the Cloud Foundry Tools for Eclipse installed. It comes pre-installed with STS and it looks like you already have the latest version (Cloud Foundry Tools Core 1.0.0.v201511252324 ) installed. Do you see the Cloud Foundry server definition (under the Pivotal category) if you try to create a new server definition in your STS?


I have installed Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse 1.6.1, but when trying to create Dynamic web project I am not getting target runtime "Cloud Foundry (runtime) v1.0". Please help. What do I need to install or configure?
