i encountered deployment problems using jboss 3.2.1
1. when redeploying ejb, i always get a classcast exception. (i resolve this problem by restarting the server)
2. when a new class is updated for my new application it does not reflect the changes until i restart the server.
any help would be appreciated.
If u have components that are dependent on the jar file and u redeploy *JUST* the jar file, you will get classcast exceptions as the dependent components cache the reference of a class that has been replaced by a new class. So try redeploying it a whole unit(like an ear file) or touch the other components that are dependent on the one that you redeployed.
