I have my jboss-service.xml pointing to some deployed classes in the file structure of the machine on which jboss is running. The entry in jboss-service.xml is like this:
In the webroot directory is a web.war directory, which has a WEB-INF/classes directory, which has all my packaged classes.
I want to be able to change a class in this directory without having to restart JBoss. I recompile, check that the version of the class in the WEB-INF/classes directory has been updated. But unless I restart jboss, the new class is not active.
I have been assured that I should not need to restart Jboss, but this simply isn't my experience. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Never mind. Found through other forum threads that I needed a trailing blank on the contents, and that I needed to touch the web.xml file under WEB-INF.
