I'm on the company UI team, with interests in angular2, react and es6 and so forth and not so much interested in webservers, war files and ejbs and such like.
But the back-end services are Java so I have to be able build and run our project in a local development environment consisting of Eclipse (Mars.2) running JBoss EAP-6.4.0.
Currently, getting this environment to serve me my most recent files is a chore.
I do not use eclipse as my IDE, and to have the server recognize external html file changes, I have to have the html file open in eclipse and "touch" it or sometimes even save it explicitly.
I would really like some of this to be more automatic.
I did update my standalone.xml file with the auto-deploy-exploded="true" attribute, but that did not seem to do the trick. I am working with externally modified static files, not "expanded" files.
JBoss is a complex, robust, flexible environment, but I need a little help with my little tiny part!
