    Seam 2.0 project with Idea 8.1

    Gerald Anderson Newbie

      Hello all! 


      I have a project that was created with seam-gen in the 2.0 era (I've since upgraded seam to 2.1.1 but doesn't help my project).  I've been using Eclipse and JBoss tools, etc, but am getting weary of Eclipse's ability to stand up under the heavy load I'm throwing at it.  This being the case, I'm going back to Idea (used it heavily sometime back, hoping to find love there again ;).


      I've got the project such that I can open it, compile and deploy it, etc.  However, I'm stuck on two little things.


      1)  Hot deploy.  I can't find a way to get it to hot deploy.  It's been too long since I've used Idea that I really have no idea.  Has anybody come up with a working solution to this?  I've found one solution, but think it was for an older version of Idea and doesn't seem to work (creating another module and moving hot source to it).


      2) Production deployment.  I can still use the build.xml to build my production version, but does anybody have any neat tricks for doing something within Idea?


      Thanks for any help!!

          ???  you speak of an IDE as if it's a load balancer or similar...

            Nope, just a massive project and a lot of plugins.  Eclipse is notorious for the degradation of performance under these circumstances.

              I'm using Seam 2.1.1 in Glassfish 2.1 (I think it doesn't matter if you use Seam 2.0 or 2.1  and Idea 8.1.1 RC).


              Hot deploy: as far as I remember, we can hot deploy xhtml and pages.xml. I haven't tried hot deploying pages.xml yet. To be able to hot deploy xhtml, the ear should be in the exploded format (in jboss, it's in a directory named your-app.ear, in glassfish, it's in the directory name your-app_ear).


              Production deployment: I don't know how to do it in Idea. Anybody knows?
