    Managed vs Unmanaged deployments

    mark boletti Newbie

      Hi JBoss devs!

      I've run my first test on the WildFly console and I've find out that the deployments via Web console allows Managed and Unmanaged deployments. What's the difference between them ?

          Managed deployments are uploaded to the server. In case of unmanaged deployments there is only a 'link' to the original file.

          But I would handle that with care in production.


          See the helptext of the cli command deploy


          --unmanaged if this argument is not specified, the deployment content

                              will be copied (i.e. uploaded) to the server's deployment

                              repository before it is deployed. If the argument is

                              present, the deployment content will remain at and be

                              deployed directly from its original location specified with

                              the file_path.

                              NOTE: exploded deployments are supported only as unmanaged.

            Hi Wolf-Dieter Fink ,


                Just for curious, If I have deployed with unmanaged argument. Can I able to check the deployed application ? If yes, How long I could check the deployed application ? ( Is there any constraints ?)

              I don't understand what you are asking for, could you elaborate on this?

                I would like to ask about the update process for unmanaged deployments. If we explode the new archive in the path indicated for the unmanaged deployment and, then, restart de Server Group, it would automatically gets the new version? Or we need to remove the old deployment and make a new one?

                  I don't understand your question


                  If you have a server-group, that mean you use the domain mode, here you don't have unmanaged deployments or exploded deployment.

                  Also as this is an old thread you should open a new discussion as your question is not related to the original issue.
