    Exploded archive deployment in WebLogic

    Chris Simons Expert

      Hello,


      Has anyone been able to successfully deploy a Seam application to WebLogic in exploded archive mode?


      Our application is running fine when deployed via an EAR, but being able to deploy in exploded archive format would really save us time when it comes to exploding small changes to JSF to the server without doing a round-trip redeploy.


      Thanks.

          I figured out the issue, sort of...


          WLS polls the /autodeploy directory quite often.  It tries to deploy the application before it's finished being copied.  There's supposed to be a WLS setting to change this polling interval, but I was unable to find it.


          At the same time, I read that WLS looks for a file in /proj.ear/META-INF called REDEPLOY.  Now, I am exploding my project with this file, but not before touching the file to give it a new timestamp.


          When I do this, the application deploys in exploded form without issue.
