 Deployment to Web Server

Applications built with WaveMaker can be deployed to a number of environments. In this document, we walk through the process of WaveMaker app deployment to Web Server.

  1. You will need a valid Web Server installation. The following is a list of Web Servers where the WaveMaker apps can be deployed.
    Note: This list is for reference purpose. Apart from these, you can use any standard Java Web Server running on JDK 1.8 and Servlet Framework version 3.1.

    Web Server Version Instructions
    8.x deployment instructions
    9.x Liberty deployment instructions
    WildFly 10.0 deployment instructions
    WildFly 11.0

    12c (12.2.1) deployment instructions

  2. You need to set up the configuration profile – you can choose to use the default profile configured by WaveMaker based upon the services incorporated within the app or build a custom profile as per your needs
  3. You need to generate a WAR file of the WaveMaker app you want to deploy. WAR file can be generated either by
    • using Export -> Project as WAR option, or
    • use Export -> Project as ZIP and use this file to generate WAR file through Maven Build
      Note: For deployment to WebSphere (for apps with JNDI profile) and to WebLogic there is a pre-processing needed before generating the war file, check the corresponding deployment instructions before proceeding.
  4. Once a WAR file is generated, deploy the same to Tomcat, JBoss, WebLogic, or WebSphere following the instructions that are given.

    Alternatively, the WAR file may also be deployed to public or private cloud servers. To deploy an application to one of the supported clouds you will need to:

    • Acquire an account (public cloud) or install the software (private cloud)
    • Create a cloud instance – a virtual machine with a standard operating system
    • Install a Java web server – for example, Tomcat
    • Deploy the WaveMaker WAR to the Java web server

    Note: Instead of above steps you can instantly deploy to Amazon Web Service or to WaveMaker Demo Cloud with just a single click. Learn about one-click deployment.
