No. You have 2 options.
Option #1. - Create an Ant file to do all the work of repackaging.
Option #2. Create directories in the deploy directory whose name mimics exactly the contents of your ear file. So, if your ear file is foo.ear, create a directory in deploy called foo.ear. If your foo.ear file contains a goo.war file, then create a directory under foo.ear called goo.war. Etc.....
Thanks, that helps alot. Is there a way to restart just a web application like in Tomcat?
