Database Flow can produce a standard Play distribution by running dist from SBT.

Other distribution formats are available. More than you’d ever need, in fact:

  • assembly - Produces a self-contained “uberjar” capable of being run with java -jar boilerplay.jar.
  • jdkPackager:packageBin - Creates an OS-specific installer, such as a DMG for macOS, an exe for windows, or a Debian package.
  • docker:publishLocal - Build a Docker image and publishes it to your local Docker repository.
