works like a charm .. can't live without it ! :)
Thanks for the reply; I just installed it (a breeze) and found that it sure does work (even in WebLogic 10!). Question, though, can JRebel pick up changes to entity beans? Thus far, it doesn't seem to - at least for me. Has that been your experience as well?
JPA — Plugin for OpenJPA that supports changes to entities and configuration. We’re considering this beta for this release and have it disabled by default. Other JPA implementation are on the way.
Hibernate — Supports changes to entities, annotations and configuration. This rocks, but we’re taking it easy and considering it beta. It’s disabled by default.

I saw in the
15 gotchas of Seampost that JRebel now supports Seam 2.2 for zero-turn-around.
This is not quite accurate. The new feature that's very exciting is the hot redeployment capability of session beans. JavaBean hot redeployment (regular classes) has been supported for a while by JRebel and it has also been supported by the Seam special classloader as well...
Thanks, I read the tutorial and your post cleared a few things up; I guess my only question at this point is whether the Hibernate plugin would support Hibernate/JPA (basically Seam default persistence engine)?
Also, in the tutorial, it looks like rebel.xml is configured to check exploded-archives/jarname.jar (which I take as the local, staging area for your exploded-archive before it gets shipped to the application server). I would think it should be setup to look at the actual deployment directory of your favorite application server...what am I missing?
