Subject RE: deploying to jboss/embedded tomcat
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2002 20:01:25 GMT
Vincent, I use JBoss with embedded Tomcat also.
When you drop a war file into the deploy directory, it won't expand like
Tomcat does, the extracted files are buried somewhere in JBoss temp folders.
I found them one time, but figured a redeploy is easier.

You might want to consider setting up your project so that ant will run and
drop the war into your ${deploy.dir} which is (conveniently) pointed at

The only other option I could recommend is putting the extracted structure
in a folder with the same name as the war file (similar to how they do
jmx-console.war) and place that in the deploy dir.  Although I don't know
what would cause a redeploy .....possibly touching the web.xml or something
similar (as Resin does with its server.xml).

Anyway, good luck!!!
