    JBoss AS6 - HDScanner scanPeriod?


      We're upgrading to JBoss AS 6 Final and are attemping to apply some of our configuration settings from 4.x and 5.x installations. Where in JBoss 6 would I configure the scanning interval of the hot deployer?


      In previous versions, I could configure the scanPeriod of the HDScanner.  In the final release of JBoss 6, I haven't been able to locate this configuration.  There doesn't seem to be anything user-configurable in hdscanner-jboss-beans.xml.  In the default profile.xml, there's a configuration for a DefaultHDScannerFactory, but I can't determine how to configure that object with a scanPeriod.  Looking at the source, I don't see an ability to configure that object    It looks like I'd need to configure a Scanner to pass into registerScanner() in order to set the scanPeriod.


      Does anyone have advice on how to configure this option?  Is it still supported in JBoss 6?

          I don't remember seeing any discussion around changing this config. So let me just dig around and see how/where it's controlled now.

            https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBAS-8796 has been created to track the documentation around this setting.

              Maybe you can try this setting in confi/bootstrap/profile.xml

                Thanks for the help Emanuel.


                I tested the settings you provided for profile.xml and successfully modified the scanning interval period. I can add a quick note in the wiki article I referenced earlier so that everyone else will have similar guidance.
