Mission

Cargo is a thin wrapper that allows you to manipulate Java EE containers in a standard way.  

Tools

Cargo provides the following Tools and APIs:

  • A Java API to start/stop/configure Java Containers and deploy modules into them.
  • A Java API to parse/create/merge Java EE Modules
  • Ant tasks and Maven 2/Maven 3 plugins.
    • Intellij IDEA and Netbeans plugins are in the sandbox.

Usage

Cargo is often used to deploy applications to containers from ant or maven builds.  Cargo can install the container and dependencies needed for your deployment as well.   Click here for a Maven 2 quick start!

For more use cases, please check the utilisation page.
