Subject Re: Forrest as Windows-Service: Solution Firedeamon
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2006 16:10:48 GMT
Hi again,
I am not the commercial guy, so I won't put any advertisments... ;-)

We used the command  'forrest webapp'. 
We deployed the generated webapp under Tomcat only once.
We don't have to recreate any webapp when changing the XML sources; all 
changes are immediately visible.

Regards,
Gunther
