    JSPs outside war in JBoss AS 7 domain mode (EAP 6.0.1)

      Hi all,


      I'm struggling to get a scenario working where we have JSPs (and other stuff) which are not part of the deployed WAR. Tomcat supports additional docbases but there's no such think in JBoss AS 7.

      The solution suggested in https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS72/How+do+I+migrate+my+application+from+WebLogic+to+AS+7, section Descriptors and Configuration Files, is to use symlinks.

      I tried that and created a symlink in the temp directory (domain/servers/server-one/tmp/vfs/..../) which points to /something. But it seems like JBoss AS doesn't follow the symlink. If I put additional files into the temp directory it's ok.


      Does anyone have a clue what to do, or can suggest a better way to do it? Putting all JSPs (and pictures, etc.) into the WAR is not an option.
