I think so.  Note that any war or ear with a war inside will get 
unpacked into the config-store.  I think if you modify jsps or static 
content there the changes will get picked up.

We've had a plan for a while to make it possible to deploy a war so 
that jsps and static content are picked up from the original source 
location rather than a deployed copy.  This would let you work on your 
jsps in your IDE in the location your SCM system knows about yet see 
the changes immediately.  I'm not sure if anyone has had the time to  
expose this functionality yet.  I would think this would be more useful 
than an "unpacked war" deploy feature.

Could you explain what you have in mind here in more detail?

Well, hopefully I'm learning here too :-)
