Modjy WAR packaging¶
Why WAR deployment.¶
- You deploy your application using a particular directory structure.
- You can deploy your application as a single file. This file is a WAR file , and actually is an archive of the same directory structure described above.
So, if your application is working correctly when deployed as a directory structure, then building a WAR file is a very simple extra step.
How to build a WAR file.¶
First, build the directory structure of your application. If you're not certain how to build this structure, a simple way forward is to take the demo modjy_webapp directory from the jython distribution, and tweak that structure to meet your needs.
When you're happy with the contents of the directory hierarchy, execute a command like this, in the top level of your directory hierarchy, e.g. the modjy_webapp directory.
$JAVA_HOME/bin/jar cvf WARNAME.war .
Where WARNAME is the name of the WAR file you want to create, and $JAVA_HOME refers to the location where your JDK or JRE is installed.
