If you have an existing WAR-based application, you can construct a self-contained
myapp-swarm.jar from it with ease. By using the plugin of your choice (Maven or Gradle), the resulting uberjar will contain your application along with enough of the application-server to support it.
When building a WAR-based application, you currently can not supply a
main(…) method to launch it.
For a Maven project, you already have a
Simply add configuration for the
<build> <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>org.wildfly.swarm</groupId> <artifactId>wildfly-swarm-plugin</artifactId> </plugin> </plugins> </build>
When you perform a typical Maven build using
mvn package, your
target directory will include a
myapp-swarm.jar version of your application.
If you don’t specify any WildFly Swarm fractions as dependencies, the maven plugin will auto-detect the fractions your application needs. See the Maven chapter for more details.
This artifact can then be executed using:
java -jar ./target/myapp-swarm.jar
