    Farmin Deployment on 4.0.4 GA

    Adam Perez Newbie

      On the following wiki entry, dated 08/29/2005, http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=JBossFarmDeployment it states

      Question: If I add applications to the JBoss farm folder before starting the application server, will the new/updated applications be pushed to the cluster during startup? Answer: No, applications are only pushed for farm folder updates that occur while the cluster node is running. If the node is the first member of the cluster, then it will define the applications that other cluster nodes deploy when they start up (see pull description below).

      In release 5 of the documentation for 4.0.4GA in
      http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/jboss4guide/r5/html/cluster.chapt.html#clustering-intro-farmSection 16.1.4 the notes state


      Currently, due to an implementation bug, the farm deployment service only works for hot-deployed archives. If you put an application in the farm/ directory first and then start the server, the application would not be detected and pushed across the cluster. We are working to resolve this issue.

      My question is, was this issue resolved? If so is there any documentation on it? Can it be applied to 4.0.4 GA?
