Common Server Parameters

Additional parameters shared by all server-based goals.

Parameter Description Required
serverXmlFile Location of a server configuration file to be used by the instance. This replaces the configFile parameter which is still supported for backwards compatibility. No
configDirectory Location of a server configuration directory to be used by the instance. Configuration files and folder structure will be copied to the target server. Files specified by other common server parameters will take precedence over files located in the configDirectory. The default value is ${basedir}/src/main/liberty/config. No
bootstrapProperties List of bootstrap properties for the server instance. The backslashes will be converted to forward slashes. bootstrapProperties will take precedence over bootstrapPropertiesFile. No
bootstrapPropertiesFile Location of a bootstrap properties file to be used by the instance. No
jvmOptions List of JVM options for the server instance. jvmOptions will take precedence over jvmOptionsFile. No
jvmOptionsFile Location of a JVM options file to be used by the instance. No
serverEnvFile Location of a server environment file to be used by the instance. This replaces the serverEnv parameter which is still supported for backwards compatibility. No

Starting with the 3.1 release of the liberty-maven-plugin, support is added to specify Liberty configuration with Maven properties. Use the following property name formats to update the desired Liberty configuration.

Property name format Content generated File generated Additional info
liberty.bootstrap.{var} var=value bootstrap.properties Merged with the bootstrapProperties parameter, but bootstrapProperties take precedence.
liberty.env.{var} var=value server.env None
liberty.jvm.{var} value jvm.options Merged with the jvmOptions parameter, but jvmOptions take precedence. Note that only the value is written to the file since JVM options do not all use the var=value format.
liberty.var.{var} <variable name="var" value="value"> liberty-plugin-variable-config.xml The server configuration file is generated in the configDropins/overrides folder of the target server.
liberty.defaultVar.{var} <variable name="var" defaultValue="value"> liberty-plugin-variable-config.xml The server configuration file is generated in the configDropins/overrides folder of the target server.

If Liberty configuration is specified with Maven properties, the above indicated files are created in the target Liberty server. There is no merging behavior for these Maven properties with files located in the configDirectory or the specific configuration file parameters including bootstrapPropertiesFile, jvmOptionsFile, and serverEnvFile.

Note that properties specified with -D on the command line are also analyzed for the property name formats listed above and take precedence over Maven properties specified in the pom.xml.

Example of Liberty configuration with Maven properties:

<properties>
    <liberty.jvm.minHeap>-Xms512m</liberty.jvm.minHeap>
    <liberty.env.JAVA_HOME>/opt/ibm/java</liberty.env.JAVA_HOME>
    <liberty.var.someVariable1>someValue1</liberty.var.someVariable1>
    <liberty.defaultVar.someDefaultVar1>someDefaultValue1</liberty.defaultVar.someDefaultVar1>
</properties>

Example of Liberty configuration with parameters:

<plugin>
    <groupId>io.openliberty.tools</groupId>
    <artifactId>liberty-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    <executions>
        ...
        <execution>
            <id>start-server</id>
            <phase>pre-integration-test</phase>
            <goals>
                <goal>start</goal>
            </goals>
            <configuration>
                <configDirectory>${project.build.testOutputDirectory}/wlp/configDir</configDirectory>
                <serverXmlFile>${project.build.testOutputDirectory}/wlp/server.xml</serverXmlFile>
                <bootstrapProperties>
                    <httpPort>8080</httpPort>
                </bootstrapProperties>
                <jvmOptions>
                    <param>-Xmx768m</param>
                </jvmOptions>
            </configuration>
        </execution>
        ...
    </executions>
</plugin>
