Start a container that is not already running


This feature is only available for local containers


First you need to create a Container instance. This can be done using the container factory or directly by instantating a container implementation class.

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
