28.4. Uploading Packages

Packages can be pulled from a content source, but individual packages can also be uploaded directly to the JBoss ON server. A variety of package types are supported, including JAR files, basic scripts, JBoss ON CLI scripts, and patches.
  1. In the top menu, click the Administration tab.
  2. In the Content menu table on the left, select the Repositories item.
  3. On the Repositories page, click the name of the repository in the list.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, to the Upload Packages section.
  5. Click the Upload File button to upload the package.
  6. In the pop-up window, click the Add button to browse to the package, then click the Upload button.
  7. Some information about the package is automatically filled in, including the name and a default UI version number. Set the package type, architecture, and any other necessary information.
    If a version number is set, then this value is displayed in the UI. If not, then a version number is calculated, based on the spec version and implementation version in MANIFEST.MF (for EARs and WARs) or the calculated SHA-256 value for the package itself. Internally, the package is identified by the SHA value.
    SPEC(IMPLEMENTATION)[sha256=abcd1234]

    Note

    For exploded content for EARs and WARs, the calculated SHA-256 version number is written into the MANIFEST.MF file.
  8. Click the CREATE PACKAGE button to finish adding the package to the repository.
