Chapter 7. Packaging and Deployment for Switchyard

SwitchYard supports the following packaging types for deployment:
JAR is the default packaging type for SwitchYard apps.
WAR files are useful when you need to include additional libraries with your application or you have web application resources (e.g. JSPs, JSF, etc.).
For an example of packaging as a WAR, see the quickstart at EAP_HOME/quickstarts/switchyard/demos/orders.
EAR files support multiple application modules in a single deployment along with additional libraries.
EAR deployments allow multiple SwitchYard applications to be included in a single deployable archive. Keep in mind that the SwitchYard applications included in an EAR are still considered separate applications from a lifecycle and visibility (both class loading and service) standpoint. For an example of deploying a SwitchYard application as an EAR, see the quickstart at EAP_HOME/quickstarts/switchyard/ear-deployment.

7.1. Deployment for SwitchYard

You can deploy SwitchYard applications to the server using file-based deployment, CLI, maven plugin, and the management console. See the JBoss EAP deployment documentation for more information.
