Deploying your maven web apps on glassfish with jenkins

Simple deployment If your jenkins server is installed on the same host as the glassfish server it’s quite simple. You just have to let maven do its thing and then add this shell command: /usr/local/glassfish/bin/asadmin --echo=true --host=localhost --port=4848 --user=admin --passwordfile=/secure/place/for/passwords/domain1_password --secure=false deploy --force=true --name=myproject --contextroot=/myproject target/*.war The /secure/place/for/passwords/domain1_password file should contain this: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=the_password Deploying different versions With parametrized build you can go a little further and decide, for instance, if you want to deploy the current version as the production one or not.
