Package your application

The package goal allows you to provision a server using Galleon, execute CLI commands and scripts to fine tune the server configuration, copy some extra content (e.g.: keystore, properties files) to the server installation and finally deploy your application.

By default the server is provisioned in the target/server directory.

Package a JAXRS application

The example below shows how to produce the latest released WildFly server trimmed using ‘jaxrs-server’ Galleon layer.

<project>
    ...
    <build>
        ...
        <plugins>
            ...
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.wildfly.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>wildfly-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.0.2.Final</version>
                <configuration>
                    <feature-packs>
                        <feature-pack>
                            <!-- Latest released version -->
                            <location>wildfly@maven(org.jboss.universe:community-universe)</location>
                        </feature-pack>
                    </feature-packs>
                    <layers>
                        <!-- Galleon layer allows to trim the installed server to your needs. The 'jaxrs-server' 
                        contains the server content required to execute JAXRS applications -->
                        <layer>jaxrs-server</layer>
                    </layers>
                </configuration>
                <executions>
                    <execution>
                        <goals>
                            <goal>package</goal>
                        </goals>
                    </execution>
                </executions>
            </plugin>
            ...
        </plugins>
        ...
    </build>
...
</project>

Fine tune server configuration and package extra content

The example below shows how to configure the plugin goal to execute CLI commands and copy extra content inside the installed server:

<project>
    ...
    <build>
        ...
        <plugins>
            ...
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.wildfly.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>wildfly-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.0.2.Final</version>

                    </layers>
                    <packaging-scripts>
                        <!-- Commands and scripts are executed in the context of an embedded-server. 
                        You don't need to start and stop the embedded-server. -->

                            <!-- List of commands -->
                            <commands>

                            <!-- Properties files containing System Properties to resolve expressions -->
                            <properties-files>
                                <file>cli.properties</file>
                            </properties-files>
                            <!-- Enable expression resolution prior to send the commands to the server, false by default -->
                            <resolve-expressions>true</resolve-expressions>

                            </scripts>
                        </execution>

            ...
        </plugins>
        ...
    </build>

</project>

Deploy your WAR application in the root context

By default the name of the WAR is used as the runtime-name for your deployment. You can specify a runtime-name parameter to tune the context in which your deployment will be registered. In this example we are using the special ‘ROOT.war’ runtime-name to reference the root context.
