Webpack WAR plugin

Build Status Coverage Status Gitter

This is a Webpack plugin which simplifies and automates the creation of a Web Application Archive (WAR) from your Webpack build outputs and other project files. This can be useful if you want to deploy your static / Single Page Web App or your applications web frontend to a Java (EE) Application server.

Installation

You can install the plugin via npm

npm install --dev webpack-war-plugin

Usage

Basic Usage

To add the webpack-war-plugin to your build just add an instance of WebpackWarPlugin to the plugins section of your Webpack configuration

const { WebpackWarPlugin } = require('webpack-war-plugin');

module.exports = {
  ...,
  plugins: [
    new WebpackWarPlugin(),
    ...
  ],
  ...
};

By default an archive containing all emitted Webpack build outputs is generated in the output directory of your Webpack build. It is named like your project.

Configuration

You can influence the generated archive by supplying a configuration object of the following structure to the plugins constructor:

type WebpackWarPluginOptions = {
    archiveName?: string;
    webInf?: string;
    additionalElements?: {
        path: string;
        destPath?: string;
    }[];
    archiverOptions?: {}
};
OptionEffect
archiveName [optional]Sets the output name of the archive
webInf [optional]Specifies a path to a directory (or file) which will be included into the archive with the path WEB-INF
additionalElements [optional]Specifies multiple files or directories, which will be included in the archive. Each entry is a object with the following properties: path (The path of the source element), destPath ([optional] The path of the specified file / directory inside of the archive [by default path is used])
archiverOptions [optional]Specifies the options that should be used by archiver (used to create the archive). See https://archiverjs.com/docs/ for more information.

Example

The following plugin configuration:

const { WebpackWarPlugin } = require('webpack-war-plugin');

module.exports = {
  entry: {
    file1: './src/file1.js'
  },
  ...,
  plugins: [
    new WebpackWarPlugin({
      archiveName: 'archive',
      webInf: './web-inf',
      additionalElements: [
        { path: 'context/context.xml', destPath: 'META-INF/context.xml'},
        { path: 'package.json' },
        { path: 'images', destPath: 'assets/images' }
      ],
      archiverOptions: {
        zlib: {
          level: 9
        }
      }
    }),
    ...
  ],
  ...
};

generates an archive with the name archive.war in the Webpack output directory with the following structure:

archive.war
|
|\_ file1.js
|
|\_ WEB-INF
|          \_ web.xml
|
|\_ META-INF
|           \_ context.xml
|
|\_ package.json
|
 \_ assets
          \_ images
                   \_ img.png
