Subject RE: redeploy
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2007 18:19:50 GMT
Your existing directory structure should remain intact, as that is where
Geronimo will be loading all your classes from.  During redeployment, the
deployer tool will delete the serialized config directory in the repository
for your application, and then re-create it using the information form your
in-place directory.

The deployer does create all those "ser" and "info" files from your
deployment descriptors during the deployment process.  Therefore, if you
change one of your deployment descriptors, you need to redeploy your app.
However, if you just swap in new code into your in-place directory,
Geronimo will pick it up without having to redeploy.

Thanks,
Aman
