I'm using JBoss 3.2.7 and Eclipse 3.0.2 with JBoss IDE 1.4.0. I only use JBoss IDE for deploying and debuging. I'm building the ear file I'm deploying using a custom ant buildfile. Hot deployment (copy the ear into JBoss' deploy dir) works just fine.
I was wondering if it is possible to get some kind hot method replacement, so that changes made in my java classes in Eclipse automatically take effect in JBoss withot building and deploying the whole ear file, which takes some time.
Couldn't find anything about this in the docs. Can I just copy an extracted ear-archive into the deploy dir ?
I also haven´t found any info on how to avoid the two steps of "Export Ear" and "Redeploy".
(using WSAD 5.1 (Eclipse 2.1) & JBoss IDE 1.3.0 & JBoss 4.0.2).
hans_d wrote in 2003 about "auto build" and "auto deploy" so I guess this issue is handled somehow and I am just to blind to see it?
Thanks in advance for a hint,
