    Speeding deployment during development

    mjl1 Newbie

      Currently, I've a project that looks like this:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
      <application>
       <display-name>myproject</display-name>
       <module>
       <web>
       <web-uri>myproject.war</web-uri>
       <context-root>/myproject</context-root>
       </web>
       </module>
       <module>
       <ejb>myproject-ejb.jar</ejb>
       </module>
      </application>

      The modules are packaged into myproject.ear and deployed to JBoss 4.0.3SP1. The deployment is to a remote box via scp, so the bigger the jars, wars, and ear, the longer the transfer takes.
      The ejb portion is pretty stable; most work is being done in the front end. My front end developers (including me) complain about waiting for the transfer to complete - less than 2 minutes - just to see the results of tweaking some javascript or html.
      Can I deploy these modules separately? That is, can my project be broken down into separately deployable subprojects - say one for ejbs, and one for html, css, javscript, jsp and servlets, etc? Is this type of packaging/deployment possible and practicle?
      thanks
