I'm in favor of that too (both exploded deployments and pointers)

A lot of the commercial servers let you keep your components anywhere
on the local filesystem -- you just give it a filepath when you first deploy
and then update the files in place to hot deploy.   I've used that a lot in
development and it's pretty convenient.  Being able to also pull in EJBs
from a separate framework project would be very interesting.

Another thread talked about needing more than the "drop-in" deployment.
I think this pointer route should definitely be explored.
