Apache Karaf Cave

Apache Karaf Cave is an Apache Karaf subproject. It provides a complete repository manager and deployer for Apache Karaf.

Overview

Apache Karaf Cave provides three different services:

  • Artifact repositories manager
  • Karaf features gateway
  • Deployer

Getting Started

For an Apache Karaf Cave source distribution, please read BUILDING.md for instructions on building Apache Karaf Cave.

Before using Apache Karaf Cave services, you have to register the Karaf Cave features repository. For example, on a running Apache Karaf instance:

karaf@root()> feature:repo-add cave 4.2.1

Artifact repositories manager

Cave Repository service is a complete artifacts repository manager, supporting Maven, OSGi Bundle Repository and HTTP wrapping.

You can install the artifact repositories manager service with:

karaf@root()> feature:install cave-repository

You now have the service running. You can manipulate the artifact repositories using the cave:repository-* shell commands.

For details, take a look on the Apache Karaf Cave documentation.

Karaf features gateway

Cave Karaf Features Gatewey is able to gather several features repositories in one, providing a single repository containing the union of all features.

You can install the gateway service with:

karaf@root()> feature:install cave-features-gateway

You now have the service running. You can manipulate the gateway using the cave:features-gateway-* shell commands.

For details, take a look on the Apache Karaf Cave documentation.

Deployer

Cave Deployer allows you to control and provision a farm of Apache Karaf instances (deploying features, application, etc).

You can install the deployer service with:

karaf@root()> feature:install cave-deployer

You now have the service running. You can manipulate the deployer using the cave:deployer-* shell commands.

For details, take a look on the Apache Karaf Cave documentation.
