Deploy to container

This plugin takes a war/ear file and deploys that to a running remote application server at the end of a build. The implementation is based on Cargo. The list of currently supported containers include:

  • Tomcat 4.x/5.x/6.x/7.x/8.x/9.x
  • JBoss 3.x/4.x/5.x/6.x/7.x
  • Glassfish 2.x/3.x/4.x

Refer to the Deploy WebSphere Plugin to deploy to a running remote WebSphere Application Server.
Refer to the WebLogic Deployer Plugin to deploy to a running remote WebLogic Application Server.

How to rollback or redeploy a previous build

There may be several ways to accomplish this, but here is one suggested method:

  1. Install the Copy Artifact Plugin
  2. Create a new job that you will trigger manually only when needed
  3. Configure this job with a build parameter of type "Build selector for Copy Artifact", and a copy artifact build step using "Specified by build parameter" to select the build.
  4. Add a post-build action to deploy the artifact that was copied from the other job

Now when you trigger this job you can enter the build number (or use any other available selector) to select which build to redeploy. Thanks to Helge Taubert for this idea.
