I am trying to move our current application from Tomcat to JBoss/Jetty server,
cause I keep hearing people talking about its better performance,but I
have following questions:
1,For some reason,We need to keep the directory of the webapp to be accessble
for our program,like in tomcat, instead of deploying the .war file, we can also place
the whole web directory under /webapps dir. But with the default configuration
of Jboss, I noticed that the server only recognize .war file, and unpack the
app to some temprory directories. How can I configure the jboss so that I
can deploy webapp by directory instead of .war file?
2, Our application server is scheduled to restart "every night" -- please
don't ask me why, it is just an established policy. The problem is that
everytime the server is restarted and .war is re-deployed, it always takes
seconds to show the jsp when it is visited for first time even the jsp is not
modified.It seems the server doesn't keep the compiled code.I may be wrong, but
does jboss keep the compiled code of JSP somewhere like in Tomcat,
in /work/statndalone/server/localhost/myapp ?
