I am in the process of writing a custom deployer to satisfy the following requirement:
I want to get handle of jar files in the war's WEB-INF/lib directory to perform some custom logic if the jar files satisfy having a particular file included in them. The custom deployer is being invoked by MainDeployer for all files under my ear but for some reason it is not being invoked for the war or any libraries included in it.
Am I missing something fundamental in the way MainDeployer behaves or is this some settings that needs to be tweaked to do this ? TomcatDeployer seems to be one that is handling deployment of the war file based on logs.
