I am using Jboss 3.2.5 on Windows XP. I notice that sometimes if I redeploy the bean, the changes are not picked up. The problem is not limited to the bean classes alone, quite often the changes to ejb-jar.xml and jboss.xml aren't picked up either. Does jboss cache the jars somewhere that it keeps using? Instead of using hot deploy, now I always restart the server whenever I put any changes, and the problem still persists! Any idea what's going wrong?
