I think it makes a lot of sense to be able to deploy applications from the very tool with which they were created. This will be a compelling argument to get your foot in the door with both Forge and OpenShift. I'd like to start by deploying a Java EE 6 web-application. We can build out more 'rhq' commands from there.
- Register for OpenShift, get a Flex account.
- Download Forge, build an app.
- Deploy to OpenShift.
- Done in 10 minutes.
This would provide an OS-agnostic way to interact with OpenShift.
