Subject RE: partially updating a WAR file using manager app??
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2003 20:15:10 GMT
Hi Yoav/Craig,

I'll take a look at the entry points you gave me - maybe I'll find my way 
through them.
Of course I'll keep you posted if I get useful results...

However, I still think it's a fundamental lack of the WAR approach not 
being able to incrementally add functionality.
I originally come from the Lotus Notes/Domino world, where adding a form 
or a view is a snap. 
I try to design my J2EE apps this way, but the final displaying component 
according to MVC is a JSP. So I have to add a JSP whenever I want to add a 
form or view (Unless I have a generic component).

Craig: It's always that way that you add a form, test it locally and then 
you want to deploy it to production. This could occur quite frequently, 
and putting down the application just to add another component is really 
not cool.
Who wants to put down a whole app just to add a single JSP or GIF file?

==> I'll rethink my approach, but I think images and static stuff should 
be addable during runtime.
This stuff isn't included in EXE files anyway, it is usually stored 
outside the basic application. I think WAR files should have the same 

thx so far
