Does ur war file contain jars?
On windows, Jar files get locked. So basically, when you hotdeploy, the old unjarred directory representing your war, in /server/default/tmp does not get cleaned up.
Before you hotdeploy, remove the relevant war directory from /server/default/tmp.
JBoss expands the war file under the tmp directory of ur config, for deploying the web components.
Nope - no jars.
The war contains three files one WEB-INF/web.xml,
and that is all. eTest.java is a simple servlet.
I answered my own question.
It wasn't a simple servlet, it was a sevelet using an outside wrapper. When I turned it into a single, simple servlet - the refresh happened - no problem.
Now I have to figure out why the wrapper stops the refresh.
I have a few questions because I am having a similar problem.
1. Where you accessing this bean with a JSP page?
2. What do you mean unwrapping it. Could you put your before and after source up
it it is not to much trouble.
