    Hot incremental deployment of JavaBean components

    Arbi Sookazian Master

      I was just doing a POC using a JavaBean Seam component.  After I ran ant explode the changes in my JavaBean did not hot incrementally deploy.  They did after I ran ant restart.


      So how can I setup my JavaBean components for hot incremental deployment?


      I noticed there is the following key/value pair in my build-dev.properties:


      action.dir=WEB-INF/dev


      So must I place my JavaBean classes in that particular directory for the Seam ClassLoader to pick them up for hot incremental deployment??


      Does it work with 2.0.x?  thx.

          Maybe I should research prior to posting these questions.


          Seam ref doc:



          But if you really want a fast edit/compile/test cycle, Seam supports incremental redeployment
          of JavaBean components. To make use of this functionality, you must deploy the JavaBean
          components into the WEB-INF/dev directory, so that they will be loaded by a special Seam
          classloader, instead of by the WAR or EAR classloader.

          So if you must deploy into the WEB-INF/dev directory, then what is the usage/meaning of the action.dir in the build-dev.properties?
