more information of Artifact type on IDEA

Hello everybody,

 

Intellij IDEA use the Artifact principle for deploy application develop. Ok but I don't find any information of these type of artifacts :

- JAR

- Web Application : Exploded

- Web Application : archive

- JavaEE Application : archive

.....

 


What is the definition and consequence of this selection type artifact ? Point of view structure, logic and server-side.

 

 

Thank of all for help me to really understand this notion of Intellij IDEA

Hi John,

 

This link explains the difference between war and exploded - web artifacts. Regarding the jars and ears - these are standard formats - jar, ear.

Hello, John,

 

'exploded' here means 'not packed', so the files are simply copied to the server. Yes, you can deploy several artifacts to the server at once, the

corresponding application will be accessible by different URLs (context paths). And yes, an exploded artifact doesn't create a java archive.

 

When you create an exploded artifact using 'from modules' item, IDE put selected modules and their dependencies to WEB-INF/lib and WEB-INF/classes

directories into the artifact accordingly to the WAR file specification. You can create the same artifact layout by hand, it just a faster way to do it.
