Excerpt

A configuration for a container that is already started

Explanation

This configuration represents a container that is already running somewhere, be it on the same machine as Cargo or not, that might have been started by Cargo or not. Cargo accesses that container using a remote access protocol and the container is considered as a black box.

This configuration is typically used in order to remotely deploy applications.

Java API

There are different ways of using a runtime configuration:

  • By directly instantiating the configuration matching your container. For example:
Code Block
[...]
Configuration configuration = new TomcatRuntimeConfiguration();
[...]
  • By using the DefaultConfigurationFactory which automatically maps the right implementation for the container you're using. For example:
Code Block
[...]
ConfigurationFactory factory = new DefaultConfigurationFactory();
Configuration configuration = factory.createConfiguration("tomcat5x", 
    ContainerType.REMOTE, ConfigurationType.RUNTIME);
[...]

Ant Task

Example:

Code Block
xml
xml
<cargo containerId="tomcat5x" [...]>
  <configuration type="runtime"/>
  [...]
</cargo>

Maven2 Plugin

Example:

Code Block
xml
xml
[...]
<container>
  <containerId>tomcat5x</containerId>
  [...]
</container>
<configuration>
  <type>runtime</type>
</configuration>
[...]

Note that the Maven2 Archetype showing remote deployer support is a complete and easy-to-use example for remote deployment. Please read: Webapp Creation and Remote Deployment Archetype.
