If you configure farm with the same name more than once, there’s still only one farm with the given name and it’s properties are merged:

  • each property except web-app list is overridden by later definition

  • web-app lists are merged as hashmaps:

    • merged web-app list does not contain duplicates

    • override properties of web-apps with the same name are also merged as hashmaps


farms {
  farm 'A', {
    port = 8081
    webapp ':ProjectA'
    webapp ':ProjectB', contextPath: '/aaa', inplace: false
  farm 'A', {
    port = 8082
    webapp ':ProjectB', contextPath: '/bbb'
    webapp ':ProjectC'

As the result, farm "A" gets port=8082 and refers three web-apps:

  • webapp ':ProjectA'

  • webapp ':ProjectB', contextPath: '/bbb', inplace: false

  • webapp ':ProjectC'

Farms are strictly project-specific. If you define farms with the same name in two different projects, they are totally unrelated and are never merged.
