Documentation for Cargo version in development


The documentation you'll find on this site is for the latest development version of Cargo (not released yet). The documentation for the relased versions of Cargo is available on the Downloads page.


Cargo is a thin wrapper around existing containers (e.g. J2EE containers). It provides different APIs to easily manipulate containers.

Cargo provides the following APIs:

  • A Java API to start/stop/configure Java Containers and deploy modules into them. We also offer Ant tasks, Maven 1, Maven 2 plugins. Intellij IDEA and Netbeans plugins are in the sandbox.
  • A Java API to parse/create/merge J2EE Modules

Check the utilisation page to understand what you can use Cargo for.
