I would like to point the deployment scanner to a webdav repository that is running on the same jboss instance, but I need it to deploy exploded archives.
I set this all up before I found out jboss doesn't support unpacked deployment of remote urls.
I'm basically just wondering what the reason for this is. I am a developer on the Jakarta Slide project, and I would like to develop this myself. I just wanted to hear if there were any major gotchas that kept this from happening.
The problem is simply that we don't support treating an http/webdav directory as an exploded deployment in the same way that we treat an exploded file. Its just an imlementation limitation at this point. If you want to take a look at generalizing this that would be great.
