How do I growing tomatoes in hanging baskets?

Tomato    Zone 7B

I would like to grow some cherry and/or grape tomatoes in hanging baskets. What exactly does this involve? Do I just need to fill the basket with regular potting mix and transplant my seedlings. Will the plants naturally grow downwards from the basket or is it more complicated than that?
