I have a question related to the deployment order with jboss-all.xml configuration files.
Let's assume I have 2 files app.ear and framework.ear deployed in WildFly 11.
framework.ear needs to be deployed before app.ear which is expressed by the jboss-all.xml file contained in the app.ear/META-INF folder:
<dependency name="framework.ear" />
Now something changes in framework.ear and a redeployment of framework.ear becomes necessary.
Question: Why does app.ear gets redeployed, too, immediately after a hot deployment of framework.ear has been carried out?
Observations: After the redeployment of framework.ear a new framework.ear.deployed marker gets created, but same does not hold for app.ear.deployed.
In fact no new app.ear.deployed gets created at all (same timestamp for this file as before) despite a redeployment takes place.
Nevertheless, in the console I see a redeployment for the dependent app.ear occurs.
Extending the example above, this is time consuming when you have a couple of additional dependencies cascading through.
I don't understand why this happens because app.ear did not change.
My expectation is that only a redeployment of framework.ear will take place. In my opinion there is no reason to redeploy app.ear, too.
Can someone explain to me how to prevent a redeployment of dependent archives when jboss-all.xml configuration files are used in conjunction with hot deployments, please?
