deploy (GlassFish)

Deploy an EAR or WAR to a running GlassFish domain. If the domain is stopped, the operation will exit with an error. You can place the startDomain operation earlier in the workflow to verify that it is running if you aren't sure.

The plugin operation waits for the deployment to complete before continuing.
