Subject Re: Disadvantages to using unpackWARs="false"?
Date Thu, 18 Nov 2004 18:03:48 GMT
OK, thanks for the info. Like you mentioned, I was thinking that 
redeployment would be easier with it set to false. I just wanted to make 
sure that I wouldn't be incurring a performance hit and the expense of not 
having to mess around with an extra directory. Thanks.

Jon
