WildFly is a free, open source & cross platform application server (formely known as Jboss AS or Jboss). It is written in java programming language & currently it is being maintained, developed by Redhat. It is one of the most popular application servers among Java EE programmers all around the world.
WildFly provides multiple ways to deploy your applications. In this post, we will deploy applications (ear, war, jar files) to WildFly from remote client machine using jboss-cli-client.jar.
If you want to connect to a remote JBoss WildFly instance without installing the server on your local machine, you can use the CLI remote client jar. It is available in the bin/client directory of unzipped WildFly distribution. The jboss-cli-client.jar can be used to remotely manage a JBoss WildFly instance. You can also get the client jar directly from Maven.
