I'm encountering slow deployment in a JBoss domain environment. The weird thing is that we encounter this in our PROD environment. In our STAGING environment, our deployment takes only 15-17secs, but in our PROD environment it takes around 15-17mins, considering that our PROD environment has more resources and that our STAGING environment is only a virtual machine. Same number of web applications are deployed, and there are no exception in the logs. It only freezes at particular times (i.e. undeploying web application, reading WSDL file from webservice), and then resumes after a while.
