What is Codehaus Cargo?

Cargo is a thin wrapper that allows you to manipulate various type of application containers (J2EE, Java EE, Jakarta EE and others) in a standard way. The portion Codehaus is a reference to the open source community which used to host Cargo when it was first created - We meanwhile moved to Github as Codehaus has shut down.

Cargo provides the following APIs and tools:

These tools and APIs can be used in a standalone fashion or via various IDEs.

Usage

Cargo is often used to deploy applications to containers from test APIs (such as JUnit), Ant or Maven builds. Cargo can install the container and dependencies needed for your deployment as well. Please find below the links to our Quick Start guides:
