Flat Binary

Distributions of this type provide a platform specific native binary, as a consequence you must specify a platform value for each one of their artifacts.

Distributions of this type only provide a single executable binary with no additional files. Should you require more than one file then have a look at the Binary distribution.

Creating a Distribution

You can use any tool/language at your disposal to create binary executables.

Universal Binaries

Binary distributions are expected to deliver platform specific binaries thus every artifact must have a value set for their respective platform property. However, it’s possible to skip validating this setting by defining an extra property named universal, like it’s shown in the following snippet:

    type: FLAT_BINARY
      - path: target/distributions/{{distributionName}}/{{distributionName}}-{{projectVersion}}
            universal: true
