The deployer tool is used for installing, uninstalling, reinstalling, starting and stopping applications and modules and for installing and uninstalling configurations (for example some configuration specific deployment plans, security realms, database connection poolsm etc.). Due to the number of options in this case, this tool is covered in detail in the Deployer tool section.

This is a powerful tool with many parameters and options but it is not hard to use at all.

As with the startup command, the deployment tool can also be invoked in two different ways:

java -jar deployer.jar [general_options] <command> [command_options]

or simply

deploy [general_options] <command> [command_options]

Please refer to Deployer tool for a fully detailed description of this tool options and usage.
