FlexDeploy - WildFly Plugin Guide

WildFly plugin provides WAR deployment and other supporting administrative operations. 
WildFly server runs in two modes

  • Standalone
  • Domain

The endpoints which these operations execute on must be configured with the JDK version which is required by WildFly.


Standalone

  • In Standalone mode, WildFly runs on single server on a single physical host.
  • The server acts as a standalone instance which has both admin and managed server capabilities.


Domain

In Domain Mode, WildFly can be controlled from a single point of control, running across machines(hosts). This single point of control is called Domain controller

  • In this Mode:
    • Each host will have one host controller and one or many severs on it.
    • One of the host controller's is defined as Domain Controller to manage all hosts
    • We can form Server Groups, which is a logical grouping of servers across multiple hosts
    • Server Groups provide the ability to perform deployment, undeployment on multiple servers at same time.
