Deploying Magnolia as WAR file
What is a WAR file
WAR means Web Application Archive. A WAR file is a zipped Java web application containing all the resources such as JAR files, Java classes, static resources and configuration data.
Since a WAR file is one single file, it is the easiest way to deploy a Java Web application to an application server. Many vendors support WAR file deployment in different ways. Please read the manual of your application server.
Remember that every Magnolia instance (author or public) is its own Java Web application. Deploy one WAR file per instance. Magnolia provides preconfigured WAR files for Community Edition or DX Core. When using custom webapps, use Maven to build the WAR file of your custom bundle webapp.

Since the release of Magnolia 6.2.4, support for the following webapps has been deprecated and compatibility modules are in maintenance mode:
We no longer provide these webapps for Magnolia 6.2. For documentation about deploying Magnolia to Weblogic, Websphere or Wildfly, see Deploying Magnolia as WAR file on our Community Wiki.
Deploying a WAR file as a public instance
If you make no changes to the webapp before deployment, it will
automatically be deployed as an author instance. If you change the name
of the webapp to
magnoliaPublic by for example renaming the WAR file
magnoliaPublic.war, it will be automatically deployed as a public
instance. The name of the webapp folder determines the configuration
that will be used. This is discussed in detail in
file with multiple configurations.
If you are not familiar with these procedures, use a standalone installation that ships with an application server.
