Subject Re: Fast way to rebuild the GUI?
Date Sat, 09 Aug 2014 11:54:05 GMT
Hi Mike,

copying the changed files to generated-webapp and restarting jetty worked
for me.

In our jetty config, we set the scan interval to 0 and hence it never scans
for files changes.

Also, our jetty version is too old 6.1.26 while the latest is 9.2.*

from the [docs]

"As of Jetty 6.2.0pre0 a new feature to control webapp redeployment will be
available. The configuration parameter is:
<reload>[manual|automatic]</reload> When set to manual, no automatic
scanning and redeployment of the webapp is done. Rather, the user can
control when the webapp is reloaded by tapping the carriage return key. Set
to automatic the scanning and automatic redeployment is performed at
intervals controlled by the scanIntervalSeconds parameter. The choice of
reloading paradigm can also be configured on the command line by use of the
-Djetty.reload system parameter. For example: "mvn -Djetty.reload=manual
jetty:run" would force manual reloading, regardless of what is configured
in the project pom. Similarly: "mvn -Djetty.reload=automatic
-Djetty.scanIntervalSeconds=10 jetty:run" will force automatic background
reloading with a sweep every 10 seconds, regardless of the configuration in
the project pom."
