I have a JBoss set up 4.0.4 GA version , now i have deployed an exploded war into this JBOSS. What i want to basically accomplish is hot deployment so if i change a java file from the IDE or some other editor say vi and generater the class file , and copy the class file in to WEB_INF/classes of the war folder then i should get by changes .
I tried what i have said this but it doesn't seem to work , can you please let me know how to do it .
Your help will be highly appreciated.
Class file changes are deployed only if the primary descriptor is changed, causing the application to be reloaded. See
