Creating Metadata Files

You can specify deployment information, such as the launch command, the number of application instances to create, and service bindings, in one or two metadata files that you upload with your application.

When you upload your application to Oracle Application Container Cloud Service using the user interface, you must include a file called manifest.json if your application requires a launch command. This file can be included at the root of the archive or specified separately.

The other file, deployment.json, is optional and isn’t included in the archive. You can specify the values in this file via the user interface, or you can upload the file using the REST API.
