Not holding out much hope with this forum having any response (it's been quite for a long time now), but thought I'd give it a shot:
We're considering a switch from GlassFish to JBoss server platforms and I'm trying to work out development process differences I'm running into as a result.
A real irritating issue is how to deploy development code from Netbeans 6.8 to the JBoss AS.
With GF it's relatively straight forward. You build your web application and (if you don't have the redeploy upon build option set) you can simply re-run the application from the IDE and the prior version is un-deployed, and the new one is hooked up and the browser is refreshed with the new version.
I'm not finding this the case with the JBoss integration. I'm resorting to literally shutting down the JBoss server, manually deleting the war application from the deploy directory and re-running the application from the IDE which then restarts the server, deploys the new war, and then starts the war.
Very time consuming... this can't be how others are doing their development using these tools can it?
