Start a container that is not already running


This feature is only available for local containers


First you need to create a container instance.

Once you have this container instance, starting the container is as simple as calling the start() method. Before doing this though you'll need to ensure you have defined the container's home (if you're using a container in standalone mode - It's not required for containers in embedded mode).

Of course it you wish to statically deploy archives, you'll need to add deployables to the container.

It is important to note that the LocalContainer.start() method will wait until the container is fully started before returning.

Example using the Java API

Starting Resin 3.x with no deployable:

Code Block
InstalledLocalContainer container = new Resin3xInstalledLocalContainer(
  new Resin3xStandaloneLocalConfiguration("target/resin3x"));


Example using the Ant API

Before being able to use the Cargo Ant tasks you need to register them against Ant. This is done by using the Ant <taskdef> element. See the Ant support page. The action to start the container is specified using the action="start" attribute as shown below.

Starting Resin 3.x with no deployable:

Code Block
<cargo containerId="resin3x" home="c:/apps/resin-3.0.15" action="start"/>
