maven war plugin?

Hot deployment and in-place deployment are not the same!  I'm not  
sure  if hot deployment works with exploded war files or not, but IMO  
relying on random timing for the successful deployment of your app  
and the absence of definitive feedback on the success of a deployment  
make hot deployment a really poor choice.

In place deployment of exploded wars makes a lot of sense during  
development although I'd tend to question it in a production system.
