Re: service discovery

micro-service architecture.

Yes - would like for applications to discover the URL of other applications deployed in CF . Consul is what I use right now - was wondering if CloudFoundry had something in this space.

Service brokers I thought are only for stateful components like a database, Consul..can it be used for stateless components as well?

What's the requirement that your application need to discover other application? Did you mean somethibg like say microservice architecture and you want to know the url available and any metadat / property of some service / app you depend on? One way is via service broker. You can use also use consul and token to do ACL based resource retrieval/discovery and I have seen this apptoach (actually today at a local tech talk).

In CF space - the applications that get deployed in warden containers - how do they discover other applications ? Should we pick a third party like Consul or Eureka, or does CF provide an alternate approach.

Thanks in advance.
