What is Genero Archive?

A Genero Archive (gar) file is a zip archive containing a MANIFEST file providing installation instructions and the list of application and services to make available on the GAS.

The archive name can be any name you wish. It need not reflect the applications or services contained within. You create an archive file using the fglgar tool.

The MANIFEST file provides deployments instructions, and must be at the root of the archive tree.

It is possible to embed external tools in a Genero Archive. The content is not strictly restricted to compiled Genero applications. Taking advantage of this capability remains the responsibility of the user packaging the applications (portability considerations, and so on.)
