I am new to JBoss and I have noticed that there are several SARs and RARs archives in the "server\default\deploy" directory of JBoss.
Can someone tell me what SARs and RARs files are for please?
How are they different from Jar and War archives?
Thanks in advance,
Balteo. (sorry, this is a re-post after I realized that my question was more relevant on this forum).
RAR is Resource ARchive, specifed by the JCA spec
SAR is Super ARchive, specified by JBoss.
SARs contain service definitions in
they can also contain other archives to group an
entire application (ejbs, wars, database, jms queues, etc)
for easy distribution.
