1) ask JBoss Tools specific questions on the JBoss tools forum (Max Andersen is the project lead)
2) why don't you use ant build.xml from seam-gen? run 'ant explode' or 'ant deploy' (packaged EAR or WAR)...
Thanks, I did look at the JBoss forums and I got a clue.
For anybody else who was wondering...
From eclipse, click on the server tab.
Right click on your runtime server and select
openfrom the popup.
The deployment option is on the left side, I wanted
use the jboss deploy folderand check
deploy projects as compressed archives
It might help to exit eclipse and then restart it. There is a lot of magic w/these tools.
John, thanks for the quick answer. The reason I don't use seam-gen is because I have wasted a ton of time trying to get eclipse and seam-gen to play nice. (Not trying to be provocative, I truly appreciate all the work and of course the price.) I am too close to QA cutover for the distraction, but perhaps I can take it up again later.
The deployment option is on the left side, I wanted "use the jboss deploy folder" and check "deploy projects as compressed archives"
I don't see the option "deploy project as compressed archives" there. But if you only need to manually share a version from time to time, it's also possible (I do this) to use File > Export > EAR file.
