From release 2.5 onwards, CAST ships a JAR file for the RestAPI, alongside the traditional WAR file that has always been delivered. The JAR file is an alternative method of deploying the CAST Dashboards based on Spring Boot and does not require a web application server (the application server is embedded in the JAR itself). The aim of the JAR file releases is to simplify and speed up the deployment of the RestAPI. The deployment and configuration of the Spring Boot based dashboards differs slightly to the steps required for traditional WAR files.
