If we are deploying/re-deploying a large file (say ear), JBoss begins deploying the individual elements (beans, servlets etc). The client can then access these even though the ear deployment is not complete.
One idea i had is to stop the appropriate invokers and then to restart them when i need to. - Is this what others do? Should it work? - I can't seem to start the invoker again and have clients make sucessful calls. - We still have the problem of not knowing when the deployment is actually complete in order to start the invokers again.
I remember questions like this in the past but can't seem to find any references to them.
