Java | Maven - Plugins | Is it suggested to use cargo maven plugin in production environment ?

crankparty Source

Currently we have a script that does maven build + tomcat deploy.

Deploying to tomcat involves stopping the server (force stop by setting CATALINA_PID), deleting war file and exploded folder from its webapps directory, copying new war file to webapps/ , deleting tomcat work directory and finally starting the server.

Can we achieve all/most of these using cargo-maven2 plugin (cleaning work/webapps ??) [ I have a basic config that can be used to just stop,deploy and start ]

And is it good to use the plugin in production environment as well ? The documentation mentions that its useful for integration tests.

Can you guys share your thoughts on this?

As you already mentioned from the docs Cargo is for functional testing. For production you should use other things like puppet or chef. Furthermore Maven is not a deployment tool it's a build tool. From a technical point of view it's of course possible to use it in production but it's not intended.
