Subject RE: redeploy
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2007 18:03:26 GMT
My understanding is that even if I have an application deployed
in-place, if I redeploy it, the deployer will delete the current
directory structure, so I would need to copy the current directory
structure in any event.

What does the deployer do? Does it simply create the config.ser,, etc files?

If you are deploying in-place, there is no need to copy the EAR.  You
should be able to just modify the application.xml, add the new web app
the EAR structure, and run the deployer tool to redeploy the EAR file.

If you are not deploying in-place, then I'm not sure you can avoid
out the EAR.  Someone else might have more knowledge in this area.
