I don't really know where to ask this question, but here it goes. I'm one of the guys behind the Javeleon class reloading system that currently supports full class redefinition for Java SE applications and NetBeans Platform based applications. We're in the process of moving into the app servers and would like to start with JBoss 7.1+. The current status of our JBoss 7.1 integration is that we can dynamically update java classes within web-apps running in exploded WAR mode. This is nice, but way more integration is required for us to be able to update changes to configurations and such. If someone would help pointing out particular places in the source tree of JBoss 7.1 that would be much appreciated, e.g. where is the web-xml, jboss.web-xml parsed and injected? How do we refresh JSP's and things like that. Any help would be much appreciated.
Think of Javeleon as a more powerfull class reloading engine than JRebel. We support changes to the super class as well as changes to implemented interfaces, so when we have JBoss integration in place it will be awesome for you (developers) to work with JBoss and Javeleon.
Please let us know either here or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to help our quest under way.
Thanks a lot,
this sounds great project!
But best address for this kind of questions / help would be if you send mail to developer mailing list https://lists.jboss.org/mailman/listinfo/jboss-as7-dev
and/or find us on #jboss-as7 on irc.
