I am currently using Jboss 7.1.2. I have a custom module that i place in the modules directory (so jboss/modules/com/xyz/mymodule ..) and everything works fine. However with the way Jboss is distributed in our organization I cannot make changes to jboss modules folder. And therefore i need to place my custom module outside of the /modules folder in the jboss installation. i tried doing that in hopes that jboss will pick this up. But obviously my custom module does not get loaded. Is there a way i can place my custom modules outside of the jboss modules directory and still be able to load it ?
