Cargo is a thin wrapper that allows you to manipulate Java EE containers in a standard way. Cargo is often used to deploy applications to containers from test APIs (such as JUnit), ANT or Maven builds.
- This plugin allows you to interact with the Cargo Tool using the Maven API.
- As Maven is configured for Maven central by default, no additional installation or repository configuration is necessary to use Cargo with Maven.
- The Cargo plugin allows you to manage 4 types of application servers: Tomcat version 6.x, Jetty Version 8.x, JBoss version 7.x and WebLogic version 10.3.x.
