Hot deploy of modules?

Luciano Molinari Newbie

Hi guys,


Is it possible to hot deploy modules on JBoss 7?

I mean copy the .jar file to JBOSS_HOME/modules/path-jar along with its module.xml and define it as a global-module inside urn:jboss:domain:ee:1.0 subsystem.

    I have the same question.


    Now I see that we have to restart JBoss to add new module (or change existing one). I also tried to find CLI for redeployment/refreshing of modules but can not find it.


    Anyone knows if this is possible or we have to restart JBoss instance for changes to be picked up?

    Adding a new module shouldn't require a server restart. How are you adding the new module and are you running into an issue if you don't restart the server?

    Hi Jaikiran,


    you are right. Adding new module works fine without restart. What confused me is that I could not find CLI command for this. Is there one?


    Also, is it possible to refresh/update existing module without restarting JBoss instance?

    Modules can not managed with the server admin interface (CLI, web console ...).


    I'm not sure, but the only posibility to reload a module is to stop all deployments which use this module, only in this case the module can be unloaded.

    But therefore the modul version can be used, you add a new version of this module and deploy an updated application which depends aón that version.
