    need advice

    Gang Duan Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm building a web application using JBoss IDE. Everytime I create or update something, to test it, I have to use the packaging feature, compress them to an ear file, and redeploy to the JBoss server.

      It's takes a lot of time doing the packaging, and deployment. How do you guys do it? Is there a more efficient way - The JBoss app server can be set to pick up the changes from the IDE real time?

      Thanks for your advice...

          We recently ran a test with a user who was complaining of the same thing. We discovered that if the server is run in debug mode, and you're merely changing java files (and not changing the 'structure' of the class, just the content of the methods), hot-code replace actually *does* work.

          If you need to change jsp's or html files, however, it does not, and a repackaging is required. For now.

            Yes, JSP's, and everything... I feel like a third of my development time is spent on packaging and deploying...

            Thanks for your response.
