Chapter 5. Offline Mode
5.1. Supported Functionality
- Runtime dependencies—the dependencies required to run the AMQ container, in its default configuration.
- Build-time dependencies—the dependencies required to build a custom application (which might include third-party libraries).
- Running the AMQ container in its default configuration—is supported in offline mode. The default configuration of the AMQ container is specified by the
featuresBootproperty in the
etc/org.apache.karaf.features.cfgfile. The requisite dependencies are all provided in the
system/sub-directory of the installation.
- Installing additional features—is, in general, not supported in offline mode. In principle, you can use the
features:installcommand to install any of the features from the standard feature repositories (as specified by the
featuresRepositoriesproperty in the
etc/org.apache.karaf.features.cfgfile), but the majority of these features must be downloaded from the Internet and are thus not supported in offline mode.
- Deploying custom applications—is, in general, not supported in offline mode. There may be some cases where an application with a minimal set of build-time dependencies is deployable offline, but in general, custom applications would have third-party dependencies that require an Internet connection (so that JAR files can be downloaded by Apache Maven).
