I usually deploy my war file into JBOSS EAP, using JBOSS’ web console. But i found a very weird condition where i cannot access my web console, so i need to deploy my war file manually from the server’s local disk.
So basically what i do is i use FTP to transfer my war file from my local disk to the server’s disk, and after that i copy my war file to EAP’s deployment folder. Well in my case, this is my folder location
After a while, there will be a file, with the same name as my war file, but with an added extension (.deployed). It means that my war file, has successfully deployed.
Those new file with extension are called marker files, and they have a different function depends on their extension. Different marker file suffixes have different meanings. And the relevant marker file types are, based on README.txt file,
.dodeploy — Placed by the user to indicate that the given content should be deployed into the runtime (or redeployed if already deployed in the runtime.)
.skipdeploy — Disables auto-deploy of the content for as long as the file is present. Most useful for allowing updates to exploded content without having the scanner initiate redeploy in the middle of the update. Can be used with zipped content as well, although the scanner will detect in-progress changes to zipped content and wait until changes are complete.
.isdeploying — Placed by the deployment scanner service to indicate that it has noticed a .dodeploy file or new or updated auto-deploy mode content and is in the process of deploying the content. This marker file will be deleted when the deployment process completes.
.deployed — Placed by the deployment scanner service to indicate that the given content has been deployed into the runtime. If an end user deletes this file, the content will be undeployed.
.failed — Placed by the deployment scanner service to indicate that the given content failed to deploy into the runtime. The content of the file will include some information about the cause of the failure. Note that with auto-deploy mode, removing this file will make the deployment eligible for deployment again.
.isundeploying — Placed by the deployment scanner service to indicate that it has noticed a .deployed file has been deleted and the content is being undeployed. This marker file will be deleted when the undeployment process completes.
.undeployed — Placed by the deployment scanner service to indicate that the given content has been undeployed from the runtime. If an end user deletes this file, it has no impact.
.pending — Placed by the deployment scanner service to indicate that it has noticed the need to deploy content but has not yet instructed the server to deploy it. This file is created if the scanner detects that some auto-deploy content is still in the process of being copied or if there is some problem that prevents auto-deployment. The scanner will not instruct the server to deploy or undeploy any content (not just the directly affected content) as long as this condition holds.
