Works for me on JBoss-4.2.2 GA (i think it will even work on 4.2.1). I have:
14:40:30,630 INFO [ServerInfo] Java version: 1.5.0_10,Sun Microsystems Inc. 14:40:30,630 INFO [ServerInfo] Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM 1.5.0_10-b03,Sun Microsystems Inc. 14:40:30,630 INFO [ServerInfo] OS-System: Windows 2003 5.2,x86
I see that jar in that ear cant be redeployed
What exactly happens? You are not allowed to delete the jar? Or even after deleting then copying a new one and touching the application.xml, the redeployment is not triggered?
Touching application.xml works but I cant *delete* old jar on Windows XP from Windows Explorer (other process is using this file) - when I stop JBossAS I can delete this jar from Windows Explorer.
I dont want to explode all my 15 jars because probably it kills Eclipse - I'm using FileSynch Eclipse Plugin to synchronization and it is much work ;>
Few jars on which I'm doing main work are exploded but most less important jars are packed and I thought solution is to pack jar, copy to exploded ear and touch application.xml but deleting old jar doesn't work.

So you are using Eclipse plugin(s) to deploy to JBoss? One other user seems to have the same problem with Eclipse plugin here http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=141827. In your case, does it work if you remove out the Eclipse part from it and deploy it manually (or through some build tool).
