We have JSP hot deployment requirement to be set up in production (the existing exploded web app gets some jsps from another tool). We deployed the application in JBoss 7.1.1 and realised that this feature does not work in JBoss 7.1.1 (I understand it is because of a defect which is fixed/will be available in the next release). Now since we have to go to production sooner I could think of 2 options -
a. Use the 6.1.0 Alpha. b. Go back one version to JBoss 7.1.0 Final. I understand that the feature works in this version.
My take is to go for the second option since both using 6.1.0 Alpha or waiting for the release of that version have their own risks. Two questions in this context:
a. Any opinion/thoughts on above? b. When a JSP is hot deployed does it loose the session available? (I think not)
