    JBoss-5 Beta4 - Redeploy exploded EAR not supported?

    jaikiran pai Master

      I am using JBoss-5 Beta4 on my test setup with Sun Java 1.5 and Windows 2003 Operating System. I have a very simple EAR file which is deployed in exploded format. The deployment works fine without issues. However when i "touch" (change last modified time) the application.xml file as mentioned at http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/RedeployAnApplicationWhenChangeAFileInAnExplodedDeploymentDirectory, the application is not re-deployed. There's no indication in the logs which suggests that the changes to application.xml has been noticed.

      I do know there are issues with redeploying a zipped EAR on Windows and JBoss-5 Beta4 because of file locking. But is this problem, with redeploying the exploded EAR, also a known issue? If not, should i open a JIRA for tracking this?

          For my exploded EAR application deployed at

          D:/JBoss-4.2.2/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/jaikiran/deploy/EJB3Persistence.ear/

          in JBoss-4.2.x, the getWatchURL method on MainDeployer MBean used to return
          file:/D:/JBoss-4.2.2/jboss-4.2.2.GA/server/jaikiran/deploy/EJB3Persistence.ear/META-INF/application.xml


          and i do see code in 4.2.x which used to add the application.xml as the watch url.

          However in 5.0 Beta-4, for my exploded EAR deployed at
          D:/jboss-5.0.0.Beta4/server/jaikiran/deploy/ZEJB3Persistence.ear/

          the getWatchURL on MainDeployer just returns
          D:/jboss-5.0.0.Beta4/server/jaikiran/deploy/ZEJB3Persistence.ear/


          Was it intentional to stop adding the application.xml as the watch url for an exploded EAR?

            Downloaded the just released JBoss-5.0 CR1. Works fine on this version.

            The exploded EAR application is redeployed when the application.xml is "touched".
