Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-580) Servlet/JSP update forces a complete redeploy of a WAR
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2009 02:04:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-580?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12722450#action_12722450
] 

Delos Dai commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-580:
--------------------------------------------

I think the key to this problem is whether the problem exist in GEP or in Geronimo server,
In fact, redeploy with GEP will invoke the redeploy function of Geronimo server. So in my
opinion, the most time-consuming work is done by server inteadof GEP.  However, it's better
to find a way to speed up the redeploy process. For this, we need to figure out if there is
any useful mechanism  of Geronimo server? Maybe making use of hot deploy in Geronimo Server
is an option. But I'm not sure how helpful will it be?

Any comments?

> I've had several users comment to me that application development with GEP is not as
fast as it should be. Basic scenario is create an application, deploy, test, update, test,
update, etc... IIUC, for each update, GEP is repackaging the WAR and running a redeploy. Repackaging/redeploy
can take some time (for large apps > 30 seconds). IIUC, we could be updating the appropriate
JSP/Servlet classes directly and greatly improving this behavior. I don't know how this works,
however. Anybody interested in looking at this? I'd like to see this improved in 2.2. If it's
something that could be fixed in 2.1.x, that would be great. But that might depend on how
extensive the changes are...
