Amp Deployment Issue.

I am trying to create custom types and for that, I have packaged my code as an amp file.

After starting ACS using the docker compose, I have the 11 containers

1) Copied the content-tutorial-share-1.0-SNAPSHOT.amp file into <container-name> container /usr/local/tomcat/amps_share dir and installing the amp to share.war using below command. The share amp is installed properly

 java -jar alfresco-mmt-6.0.jar install /usr/local/tomcat/amps/content-tutorial-share-1.0-SNAPSHOT.amp /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/share  -verbose


2) Next, I copied the content-tutorial-platform-1.0-SNAPSHOT.amp file into <container-name> containers /usr/local/tomcat/amp dir and installing the amp to alfresco.war  using below command

 java -jar alfresco-mmt-6.0.jar install /usr/local/tomcat/amps/content-tutorial-platform-1.0-SNAPSHOT.amp /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/alfresco  -verbose


While i am installing content-tutorial-platform-1.0-SNAPSHOT.amp , then I am facing the issue i.e., 09200000 An IO error was encountered during deployment of the AMP into the WAR. 


When I try to look at the logs, I dont see any error messages in it.

Re: Amp Deployment Issue.

You should never copy AMPs into a running container and install them there. Instead, you should create your own, customised Docker image, using the Alfresco ones as the basis (FROM). See Creating customized Docker images using an existing Docker image

(Note: The warning at the top of the article is Alfresco's overly aggressive nudge to move developers to out-of-process extensions, but their support for out-of-process extensions for some functionalities like behaviours is extremely poorly documented - if you can find anything at all. So personally, this warning is pointless as you don't really have a reasonable option to do anything but use AMP extensions.)
