We have discussed the deployment to Apache TomEE using the official tomee-maven-plugin. With tomee-maven-plugin, it is easy to download a copy of Apache TomEE distribution and start the TomEE server and then deploy the application to it. Or deploy your application to a running TomEE server. The official maven plugin is great for most cases, but it lacks the ability to deploy the application to a local installed server with fine-grained configurations.

Cargo maven plugin 1.8.3 brought updates to TomEE 9.0…

This is an addition to the existing deploying Jakarta EE 9 applications to Glassfish v6 using Cargo maven plugin.

Cargo maven plugin 1.8.3 will include a glasfish6x containerId for the new Glassfish v6. In 1.8.2 or previous versions, it allows you use a JSR88 specification(Deployment) based remote deployer with a runtime configuration to deploy applications to a running Glassfish server.

This will stop to work when switching to use a glassfish6x container due to the changes happen in Jakarta EE 9 and Glassfish v6.

The JSR88 is removed in the further Jakarta EE 9, check the 6.1.4. Removed Jakarta Technologies
