I would expect --type option in deployment to accept all valid archive types supported in a runtime. That's not the case; it only accepts osgi for some reason. See the error below:
ss141213@Sahoo:/tmp$ asadmin deploy --type war ~/bugs/FirstV3Test/dist/FirstV3Test.war
remote failure: Error occurred during deployment: There is no installed container capable of handling this application FirstV3Test. Please see server.log for more details.
Command deploy failed.
