This a project to make EAP more efficient and smaller specifically for deployment in containers. You basically don’t need the whole EAP with full functionalities, but only the ones you will actually use.
Basically, if I want feature pack 1, 2, 3 and gallons will get the jars needed for those and then it will some how have an example config
and basically pulls the jars from maven
Galleon ~ Cloud native EAP
Creating an EAP with only the minimal you need ~ using layers:
Just run the command
galleon.sh install wildfly:current --layers=cloud-profile,core-server,core-tools --dir=my-wildfly-server
~ this will create a minimal wildly with cloud-profile, core services, and core tools.
It’s very useful then, to use with Open Shift and provide easy integration. EAP images on OCP are built with Galleon straight from Si2 using Galleon, i.e. Galleon layers, and only brings that specific feature.
Example with jboss-logmanager-2.1.5.Final-redhat-00001.jar
Instead of $JBOSS_HOME/modules/system/layers/base/org/jboss/logmanager/main/jboss-logmanager-2.1.5.Final-redhat-00001.jar, which is in EAP 7.x, within a container we will have:
$ find . -name jboss-log\*.jar
