I'm starting my first development in java using: JBOSS 4.0.5GA, JSF, SEAM 1.1.1GA and Netbeans 5.5.
I'm not sure if it's the best place to post this question, but everytime I have to change my JSF pages (.xhtml files), like changing layout and checking the HTML rendered, I have to recompile and deploy the whole application, making me spend a lot of time.
Is there a way of changing a JSF page and see the results on the fly, like pointing the page dir to my development path?
NetBeans doesn't support incremental deploy currently. You could experiment with JBoss settings regarding directories which are peridically scanned and add your own directory with JSF pages. But you'll probably result in some ambiguities while deploying the archive from NetBeans.
