From release 2.0 onwards, CAST ships a ZIP file for each CAST Dashboard, alongside the traditional WAR file that has always been delivered. The ZIP 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 ZIP itself). The aim of the ZIP file releases is to simplify and speed up the deployment of the CAST Dashboards. The deployment and configuration of the Spring Boot based dashboards differs slightly to the steps required for traditional WAR files.
