Subject in-place deployment
Date Tue, 13 Jun 2006 19:14:28 GMT
Thanks.  I executed deploy.bat but didn't see the -inPlace option from the
help menu.  Should we add this option to the output of executing deploy.bat?

Then I saw David Jenck's article
b+Applications+on+distinct+ports), so I figured out I can just call
"deploy.bat deploy --inPlace" to use it.  What I found out is if I execute:

deploy.bat deploy --inPlace path\hello.war

I got the following error:
    Error: Unable to distribute hello-1.1.war: In place deployment is
    not allowed for packed module

Then I tried:
deploy.bat deploy --inPlace path\hello 

and it worked well.  I did see David used an ear file as the last parameter
in the example given in the article...

That should be true in both 1.0 and 1.1 (if not, I guess it's a bug).

But in 1.1, there is a separate option, which is to not copy your
files to the hot deploy directory at all, but instead use the deploy
tool with a special option to enable an in-place deployment.  This
means that instead of copying your files into the server directory at
all, it will deploy and access them from wherever they currently are.
