Almost all applications depend on some external services like a database or third party components. In traditional development, we bind those components to an application using property files and store it outside the deployable, so that it can be modified whenever required without affecting the running application code.
Cloud Foundry therefore uses service brokers, through which developers can provision and bind a particular service to an application. Service brokers can be used to define the relationship between the application and services like databases. This permits loose coupling between an app and a service.

The sample is a Spring Boot application, this project has been configured to bind to an Amazon S3 Service Broker instance on Cloud Foundry. To deploy this application to Cloud Foundry and use Amazon S3 as an auto-configured service binding.
