The cloud-computing paradigm advocates the use of virtualised resources, available “in the clouds”. Applicationsare now developed in order to be cloud-aware. Unfortunately,the deployment of such applications is still manually done, orrelies on home-made shell script. In this paper, we propose to model cloud applications using a component-based approach. It leverages the existing deployment descriptors into a high-level domain-specific language. The language is then illustrated through the modeling of a prototypical application used to teach distributed programming at the University of Oslo.
