      Complaint from our support guys about missing old feature:
      - https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBAS-6062

      test.jsp

      Hello my page
      <Br>

      <%
      out.println("what a page!!");

      %>


      Since JBossAS 3.x, one may deploy a jsp page without creating a full fledged WAR archive i.e. an archive with WEB-INF/web.xml.

      This feature is a must for the support team as we can provide in a matter of minutes customers with jsp pages containing debugging code without asking for a full deployment especially on production servers. For instance to output classloading data or to test some jms or ejb client code.

      We need this feature back!


      Adding a deployer that adds JBossWebMetaData based on deployment's .war name?
