I have the following problem deploying our application (EAR) into JBoss.
Our application is installed on target system as a directory that follows standard EAR structure. There are few exceptions that make it impossible using out-of-the box URLDeploymentScanner:
1. EAR directory doesn?t have .EAR extension.
2. Individual web applications are directories that do not have .WAR extension.
3. EJB modules are directories that do not have .JAR extension.
If I add these extensions to mentioned directories (and update META-INF/application.xml), everything works fine. Here I should also mention that we do not need hot deployment feature that URLDeploymentScanner provides.
My question is the following. I think we need to develop our own deployment MBean, similar to URLDeploymentScanner, which will deploy enterprise applications statically listed in some config file (may be inside jboss-service.xml). I was wondering if anybody had similar problem, or know of similar existing solutions?
All the Best,
