    AS 5.0: Why touch web.xml for exploded deploys?

    Koos Pol Newbie

      Since AS 5.0 does exploded deploys automatically, why do I still need to touch the web.xml?
      From Eclipse if a save and build a source file, I can see (from verifying the timestamps) that AS 5.0 notices that. The class files are momentarily copied to the deploy directory. Apparently the HDScanner does its job. It would be a nobrainer to subsequently redeploy the application. Now I need a seperate ANT task or such so trigger the redeploy by touching web.xml.

      From perspective of automatic development cycles and default Eclipse project implementation we could hugely benefit from not needing the web.xml detour.

      Thanks,
