The list-application-refs subcommand lists all application references in a cluster or an unclustered server instance. This effectively lists all the modules deployed on the specified target (for example, J2EE applications, Web modules, and enterprise bean modules).

If multiple versions of a module or application are deployed, this subcommand lists all versions. To list which version is enabled, set the --long option to true. For more information about module and application versions, see Module and Application Versions in Payara Server Application Deployment Guide.

The target instance or instances making up the cluster need not be running or available for this subcommand to succeed.

This subcommand is supported in remote mode only.
