Subject RE: partially updating a WAR file using manager app??
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2003 15:45:24 GMT
Hi Yoav,

BTW - Let's say portability here is not my primary goal here.

What about extending the manager task so that if there are differences in 
the "/web/" folder (i.e. static web content)
to allow to access the /work/ directory directly and put the JSP or 
graphic or whatever directly there.
Same would go for classes or libs.

What would you recommend me to do to extend the manager app? Where should 
I start?
Can you name me the source files I could look into - and how could I 
enhance the manager app while making it still compatible with future 

BTW - I also have some trouble with the JSPC, it doesn't allow for JSPs 
with the same name - I already posted here twice but haven't got any 
response yet. Maybe you have an idea for this as well?

thx alot

RE: partially updating a WAR file using manager app??

By definition, a war file is a complete application.  Even if you could
get around this limitation by somehow finding a way to deploy one JSP
outside the war file, your solution wouldn't be portable.  Just
repackage and redeploy the war.  Both of these tasks should be quick and
easy as they are automated by ant...
