I would like to know what happened to the manual scan functionality that was available in JBoss 4.0. It appears in JBoss 5.1.0GA version, this is gone. We would like to be able to manually manage scan operations on several different application profiles loaded in JBoss. The new DeploymentScanner mbean org.jboss.system.tools.DeploymentScanner does not have the scan() method any longer. We have the hdscanner-jboss-beans.xml file deployed and set the scanPeriod to 631139040000 so that it won't auto-scan the archives and tried stopping and starting the DeploymentScanner. This works sometimes, but is inconsistent. Any ideas?
