    Java Webstart reloads all JARs on every restart/redeploy

    Joerg Thoennes Newbie


      with JBoss 3.2.2 we have new behaviour which we had not with JBoss 3.0.8:

      We deploy a WAR file which contains a JNLP file and related files (JARs, pictures etc.)
      so that Java Webstart can access that information from clients PC.

      We restart our servers every night, so that the Web Application gets redeployed. With JBoss 3.0.8, Java Webstart only downloaded new JAR files etc. if we deployed a completely new
      WAR file.

      With JBoss 3.2.2 Java Webstart detects changed JAR files on every restart (redeployment). Basically that means that our client have to download the complete application every morning.

      How can we solve that? I heard of the "DeleteWorkDirs" XML config in this forum together with the JSP recompile problem. Does this option also address this problem?

      Thanks in advance for any help!
