Monolithic deployment file ... a la jar file

Posted at — Apr 4, 2013

The monolithic code repository still has some value. It does get a little tricky when you implement continuous deployment but that another story. The jar file is nothing more than a compressed tar-like file with a little compression sugar sprinkled in.The only difference is that jar files are read by the java runtime engine so while other types of file objects make sense in system delivery it all amount to the same thing.
