Examples of orchestrators in XL Deploy
An orchestrator combines the steps for the individual component changes into an overall deployment workflow. This example shows how different orchestrators affect the deployment of a package containing an EAR file, a WAR file, and a datasource specification to an environment containing two JBoss Application Server server groups and one Apache Tomcat virtual host.
If you use the
parallel-by-container orchestrator, XL Deploy will deploy to each middleware container in parallel.
The icon indicates the parts of the plan that will be executed in parallel. If the
sequential-by-container orchestrator are used instead, the steps in the deployment plan are identical, but the icon indicates the parts of the plan that are executed sequentially.
In this example of the
parallel-by-deployment-group orchestrator, the JBoss-main-server-group and Tomcat8-virtualhost containers are assigned deployment group number 1 and JBoss-other-server-group is assigned deployment group number 2.
