Thanks a lot Peter.
Forgot to mention that we are moving JBoss server in clustered environment and as per the link, it says exploded option does not work in farm. So is there any other option to achieve the scenario I have mentioned.
The reason to keep this in exploded format is we are evaluating Hyperic HQ to monitor Apache web server and application. Now each time we restart Jboss, a different tmp folder is created and the same is used as service by Hyperic HQ for monitoring. And because of this we are unable to keep all monitiring details under one service only.
I will really appreciate any input on this.
