If i understand right, waht u are asking is, that rather then putting yr war file in deploy u want this to be deployed in some other directory right.
What theat means is that Deployment Scanner service by default looks into deploy folder only.
So if u want that behavior just goto /server//conf/ jboss-service.xml file
<mbean code="org.jboss.deployment.scanner.URLDeploymentScanner" name="jboss.deployment:type=DeploymentScanner,flavor=URL"> <--Read this subsectiom --> <attribute name="URLs"> deploy/ , file:/var/opt/apps/ </attribute> </mbean>
Hopefully this will solve yr query.
Thanks Vishal, I will check and do let you know the status.
