Subject Re: Use reference:file URL for installing the bundles in repository
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2012 14:15:55 GMT
Sounds if we use this method, we could save some time when deployment time,
thus could help with GERONIMO-6222. For big Java EE artifacts deployment,
copying several times really cause some performance weakness. Would like to
see that change if no much conflicts with Geronimo future direction.
