I was wondering if there is a way to get JBoss to unpack a WAR application in the same tmp folder. The default behavior is to auto-create a tmp folder under the tmp directory with the naming convention "tmp<some_number><application_name>-exp.war".
This is fine, but a bit difficult for debugging in a development environment. Sometimes, it makes sense to make some changes directly into the exploded war directory for quick testing without needed to re-deploy the app. Knowing where the app will be deployed beforehand can ease this process. The exploded war directory can be bookmarked and easily found.
If this is not feasible, please let me know.
