I am a newbie to J2EE on JBOSS. Could anyone tell me if I update a class file, while updating on JBOSS Deploy folder, is it necessary to make a war again.
If not what could be drawbacks of directly pasting the updated class in war folder and the touching the web.xml file.
thanks in advance,
If you touch the web.xml, the application will be redeployed. Other than possibly affecting existing sessions, there should not be an issue with doing this.
If you do not tounch the web.xml file, the updated class file will be ignored (not reloaded and therefore not used).
