Re: can we install ruby gems in existing cf stacks (cflinuxfs2) without recreate stack

Lingesh Mouleeshwaran

Hi Dan ,

yes I have installed the require gem via *bundle install* to specify the
path of vendor staging directories which is available in below paths

/var/vcap/data/packages/dea_next/* /vendor/cache

using buildpack Gemfile.

Still I am not seeing these require gem is available in staging container.
So staging container during compile phase.

Hi Cloudfoundry ,

Is there any simple way, we can update or install new libraries in
existing cf stacks (cflinuxf2) without creating new custom stacks ??

*Example :* Our modified java buildpack not running on existing stacks
because of few of the ruby gems are missing in the file system. so we would
require to install few ruby gem and use the modified java buildpack.

Share your thoughts and suggestions.
